Sand Blasting Media

Wet blasting is not effective without the use of abrasive media. The media helps to clean, smoothen, and finish the part surface.

Glass beads are a popular choice when it comes to water blasting. They are manufactured using highly graded glass particles. These glass particles are subjected to high compression.

The manufacturing process starts with the melting of the glass particles into ball shapes. It is followed by cooling to increase the overall strength and internal pressure. The final media will be in the shape of transparent beads without any impurities.

It is capable of producing all types of finish on the part surface. The type of finish depends on the bead size and other parameters. It also helps to develop decorative designs on the surface with proper use.

The glass beads ensure that the part surface does not get damaged at all. The precision and accuracy of the part will be maintained in the final blasted part also.

These glass beads come with a long lifespan. Thus, the same beads can be reused multiple times for many years. So, only a one time investment is need on the glass beads. Thus, the solution appears to be cost effective.

The glass beads also help to improve the strength of the part. It is achieved with the help of the constant pressure applied by the glass bead layer on the part surface. Thus, it avoids unnecessary material removal and surface fatigue.

It is also an eco-friendly solution since it does not leave any harmful residue as the byproduct. So, no harm or pollution is caused to the surroundings and environment with the use of glass beads as the blast media.

39.What Is The Finishing Time For The Wet Blasting machine?

The finishing time for a wet blasting process varies with different factors.

 

39.1 Abrasive Media Type

One of the main factor that decides the finishing time is the type of abrasive media.

You can get media with different cutting grades.

The media with higher getting grades will remove more material, and this makes the cleaning faster.

Thus, the finishing time will be less for higher cutting media.

But, you cannot use such media with all the materials.

Some parts require less material removal.

So, lower cutting grade media needs to be used with such parts.

Another thing is that cheap quality media will consume more processing time when compared to the high quality ones.

 

39.2 Preparation Of Surface

If you are planning to paint the surface, you will only be interested in the surface preparation of the part.

So, the processing time needed will be less.

 

39.3 Part Material Type

Inovatec machines are capable of handling different metal and metal alloy parts.

Some are soft parts, whereas others are hard.

The soft part will need less processing time when compared to the hard parts.
