Shot blast cleaning

At Ervin, we provide first-class shot blast cleaning services that you require. There are many advantages to opting for shot blasting cleaning. This form of cleaning is also referred to as abrasive blast cleaning and abrasive blasting. During the shot blast cleaning process, a stream of abrasive metal is sent to a surface at high pressure in order to smoothen the surface, erase coatings and paints, remove rust, sand & scale, and provide profile to the surface.

What industries use shot blasting?

This process is frequently used to polish and clean metal, and it can also strengthen it. It is used in a wide range of industries, and these include construction, the automobile sector, public transport, shipbuilding, sandblast paint removal and many more.

Types of shot blasting

Shot blasting will involve the forceful direction of highly abrasive particles against the surfaces of metal parts in order to remove contaminants and condition the surface for finishing.

There are generally two forms of shot blasting available, and these are mechanical blasting and air blasting. These processes can both be carried out manually or by machines. With mechanical blasting, the abrasive particles are propelled by a power-driven rapid rotating bladed wheel. Whereas with air blasting, the abrasive material is propelled through a nozzle by using compressed air. Generally, mechanical blasting is more widely used across the industry.

Regarding shot, there are two main types of ‘shot’ that are used. These are:

Grit – angular metal particles which may be tempered

Shot – same as grit but spherical in shape
