LIFT EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURER

OVERVIEW

A very large equipment manufacturer had a bottle neck in their blast room. They were using steel grit and getting four decks blasted per day, which was much lower than the blast room’s intended capacity. The profile they were achieving was too high and it was forcing them to hand sand the rails on their decks, adding an additional step in their manufacturing process.

SOLUTION

BlastOne recommended that the manufacturer switch to NewSteel Garnet (80mesh), to increase their production and achieve the proper surface profile.

Product specifications include:

  • High performance, low dust garnet abrasive

  • Ideal for removal of light rust or milscale on new steel

  • Will achieve a 25-50 micron profile

  • Typical consumption rate 250 kg/hr

RESULTS

The dust levels from using an expendable abrasive (garnet) were slightly higher than using steel grit. However the production increase and the elimination of the hand sanding process were a huge improvement on labor costs.

The higher production allowed them to double blasting production overcoming the bottle neck and to eliminate an entire hand sanding process. They are firm believers in using NewSteel Garnet in their facility.

NewSteel Garnet Steel Grit
Abrasive Used 400 lbs/hr  1200 lbs/hr
Area Blasted 100 ft2 100 ft2
Hours Blasted 30 min 1 hr
Blasting Production Rate 200 ft2/hr 100 ft2/hr

CONCLUSION

Our results show that GMA NewSteel Garnet is more productive than steel grit. By making the switch, the client consumed 60% less abrasive and doubled their production capabilities.
