Before steel is hot dip galvanised, it must be cleaned of rust and other uneven/dirty particles to give it a smooth surface. Shot blasting is the perfect process to remove undesired layers or coatings.
Shot blasting fires a high-pressure spray of abrasive steel materials onto a rough surface to create a smooth surface. With an automatic loading and shot reclaim system, the process is incredibly efficient and fast to remove surface contaminants without chemically altering a fabrication.
A range of heavy-duty shot blasting cabinets are based at our sister plant in Medway (part of the Joseph Ash Group). Highly skilled operators use them to shot blast and strip all architectural and structural steel such as gates, fences, vehicle chassis, railings, sculptures, agricultural equipment, steel pipes, bridge components etc.
The cabinets are fully approved and meet all COSSH, health and safety and environmental regulations.
