Shot Blasting

Shot Blasting

Our internal shot blasting and tumbling machines clean all cylinder internal surfaces removing rust, general contamination and corrosion build-up without removing the base material.

The Shot Blaster uses either steel grit for steel cylinders or glass beads for aluminium cylinders.

These flow under pressure through the mixing pot which is then boosted at the nozzle with higher pressure air creating a venturi action to ensure optimum results.

Used grit is blown back into a dust bag with excess air released through an air filter and the grit can then be reclaimed back into the system by a gravity feed.

The system allows full internal surface coverage by way of a rotating nozzle driven by a geared motor and axial travel with a pneumatic piston. Speed of travel is user adjustable to provide a rapid and very effective internal cleaning system.
