What is surface cleaning?

I guess you've heard the term "Shot Blasting" before in the surface preparation industry. It refers to the blasting category in general, for all machines where shot is used. We frequently use the terms Shot Blasters or Shot Blasting when talking about our equipment for simplicity and recognition sake,we called them shot blasting machine. Shot blasting is a technological process of removing various impurities from different surfaces by using abrasive. This surface shot blasting machine is used for a surface protection and also prior-preparation of surfaces prior to further processing, such as welding, colouring, etc.

How does shot blasting cleaning machine work?

The shot blasting cleaning machine makes use of a mechanical method of propelling abrasive using a centrifugal wheel to remove a layer of the surface and impurities from the surface of metal and steel products. ... Enhances paint adhesion by adding texture to the surface of metal products.

What material is used for shot blasting?

Types of metal abrasives used in shot blasting include steel grit, copper shots, and aluminum pellets. Other methods of shot blasting use silica sand, glass beads, synthetic materials like sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), and even agricultural materials like crushed kernels.

Types of Shot Blasting Machine

According to the structure of the castings' bearing body of shot blasting machine, it can be divided into tumble shot blast machine, hook shot blast machine, hoist shot blast machine , rotary table blast machine, and blast room etc.

What is the different between Shot Blasting Machine and Shot Peener.

By the way, shot blasting machine is different from peener, which is used to reduce the fatigue life of parts, increase different surface stresses, increase the strength of parts and prevent fretting.

Shot peening is used to produce a compressed layer and change properties of a metal. 

Shot blasting is used to either clean or prepare material whereas shot peening is a process that is precisely controlled by a careful selection of media, along with controlled intensity. It is a cold process stress on the surface of metals.
