A variety of industries use Sandblasting as a procedure for cleaning or removing paint or for some smoothening purposes. It is also made use by auto industry. To operate a sandblaster, professional training is required as amateur handling of the device could cause danger to human health. A sandblaster removes grease, paint or any other undesired veneer from different surfaces. Different abrasives are used for sandblasting and among them is Garnet which is a naturally occurring mineral. They are tough, highly stable, have low particle breakdown, are recyclable and contain no free Silica. Other reasons for using Garnet include its non-toxicity and non-hazardous nature which is safe to health and environment. Blast cleaning using Garnet is mainly done for water jet cutting and water filtration.
A sandblaster contains two components- the blast pot which is a large container that holds the blast media and the pressurized air intake. It uses pressurized air to hurtle a beam of tiny particles like walnut shells, glass beads, corn cob, steel shot, plastic or other material. It is due to this air pressure cleaning process is done. Sometimes you may need a remote-control system for both precision and safety. The air and media traveling through the blast hose comes out the nozzle of a handheld gun. Tiny divots are created in the material depending on the size, texture and density of the particles. Air escapes the chamber and a trap is created to catch the abrasive blasting media.
