Description

A sphere-shaped form of steel casting, manufactured by pouring a molten mixture of premium-grade steel scrap and selected alloys through a series of water jets. On contact with the water, the molten metal is atomised, forming round particles in a controlled range of sizes. These particles then fall into a water tank, are dried, screened by size, quenched and tempered in a unique heat treatment process.

Application

Can be used as a blast cleaning media to remove various forms of surface contamination from a broad spectrum of steel or foundry products

Also used in in peening to increase the fatigue life of metal parts, such as jet engine turbine blades, automotive springs, or heavy equipment crankshafts. This is accomplished by pelting the surface of a metal part with round metallic shot thrown at relatively high velocity. Each shot acts as a tiny peen hammer, imparting to the surface small concave indentations or dimples in the surface of the metal.

Typical Applications include:

  • Aluminium Engines
  • Alloy Wheels
  • Surface Preparation
  • Brass pipe fittings
  • Stainless plate profiling
  • Stainless utensils
  • Operating instruments
  • Aerospace
  • Paving Stones

Features and Benefits

  • Eliminates contamination
  • No ferrous residues to rust or discolor
