Compound for Mass Finishing Machines – What Is It and What Does It Do?

Compound for mass finishing machines  is an essential part of the process.  There are a huge variety of compounds available and their function is to:-

  1. Maintain the action of the media by loosening and separating metal fines from the surface of the chips and to keep them suspended in solution so that they can be carried out of the process tub.
  2. Change the action of a media by chemical activity
  3. Provide an aqueous solution contained water-softening ingredients, detergents for cleaning both media and component, to chemically brighten and to provide inhibitors to prevent rust on ferrous components and tarnish on all metals

Shotblasting – Recognising Steel Production Processes

Shotblasting of steel plate, profiles, construction, and fabrications is a process to clean, descale, provide a specified surface profile and edge break as a surface preparation. The process detail is subject to the hardness and start condition of the steel and it is vital to know these factors prior to shotblasting and before application of a coating or paint to maximise the adherence potential and corrosion control.
