Structural Blasters - Norton Sandblasting Equipment

Structural Blasters


How Do They Work?

During blasting, abrasive media falls at a measured rate through the feeder spout into the blast wheel. The rotating blast wheel picks up the media and accelerates it, creating a blast stream that makes contact with the metal surface. Through the continuous flow of the abrasive media, the metal object is methodically stripped of rust and surface imperfections.

Structural steel moves over the conveyor as blasting media is propelled at a controlled, continuous rate set for a desired cleaning standard. Blasting is the most effective and efficient method for removing rust and scale from structural steel shapes and steel plates.
