The step-wise process of shot blasting at Emerson
We follow an elaborate yet simple procedure for shot blasting of the forgings. There are different units of our shot blasting machinery specific to all the steps of the technique:
We have single as well as multiple abrasive turbine arrangement systems in our shot blasting machinery. The arrangements are decided based on the size, shape, and quantity of the forgings.
Recovery of abrasive
We reuse the abrasives after a thorough cleaning process that includes the removal of oxide and dirt deposits.
Our shot blasting machinery has a separate chamber for collecting the dust, i.e., the Dust Collector. This dust is further directed to a larger unit that is responsible for its disposal.
The critical points of shot blasting
Our team of highly qualified engineering experts works for managing the entire shot blasting process. They design the critical points of the process, keeping the material, and forging requirements in mind. Here is how they manage these points to get the precise output:
Selection of abrasive material:
Usually, we prefer steel as an abrasive. Our engineers choose different grades and sizes of steel to ensure better polishing of the forgings.
Speed of the shot (abrasive):
The speed of the shot or abrasive decides the extent of the cleaning and polishing of the forging surface. We maintain a 65-110m/second speed so that the surfaces get rid of the dirt and debris with no damage to the forging body.
Dust capturing and disposal:
Our technical team actively analyzes the dust collection and disposal systems to ensure that the dust collected is disposed of safely, and it does not move back to the shot blasting units.
