High carbon steel shot is used in the majority of the wheel blast applications and creates a dimpled, peened surface. Only the shot’s skin suffers from the impact and very thin flakes will progressively part from the shot, which itself stays round throughout its life cycle. Our steel shot is very durable with high resistance to impact fatigue, giving it an effective and quick cleaning rate.
Our high carbon steel shot is used in various applications like; desanding, descaling, cleaning, shot peening etc.. The centrifugal atomization process and double heat treatment at the Airblast plants, as well as continues quality control measures, ensures the shot to be of the highest quality.
High Carbon Steel Grit
High carbon steel grit produces an etched or angular surface profile and is well suited for cleaning, descaling, etching and desanding applications. Our high quality steel grit has a long service life and is used in both wheel blast machines and blast rooms.
High Carbon Steel Grit GP has the lowest hardness in the range of 42 to 52 HRC and is also revered to as angular shot, because the grit will get a round shape during its lifetime. It Is mainly used in wheel blast machines and it has good results in the foundry industry because it cleans faster with little increase in maintenance costs and machine parts wear. GP is used for cleaning, descaling and desanding.
High Carbon Steel Grit GL has a medium hardness in the range 53 to 60 HRC. It is used in wheel blast machines and blast rooms and is particularly suited to heavy descaling and surface preparation requirements. Although GL is of medium hardness, it also loses its angular shape during shot blasting.
