Blast Cleaning – an expedient process of cleaning without impinging the substrate surface. A process that is ideal for cleaning new and used, more delicate precision components by OEM, sub contractors, remanufacture and maintenance divisions within almost all industries.
Dry blast techniques are now common place as soft recyclable cleaning media is employed. Even complicated shapes and sensitive materials can be efficiently cleaned without substrate erosion or dimensional change.
Dry blast cleaning is for the precision cleaning of glass moulds, foundry moulds, forge dies, rubber and polymeric industry moulds, automotive component remanufacturing, compressor valve remanufacture, food process, machinery maintenance and tools without damage to delicate surfaces.
Automatic wheel-blast systems are often quoted for the efficient cleaning of dies used in extrusion processes.
Blast cabinets are frequently used for cleaning or removing heat scale from small intricate shapes, cavities and mould surfaces. They can also be used for localised peening applications and is often specified in conjunction with the aerospace engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) departments.
