Soda Blasting

The blast cabinet is a closed-loop system that allows for a cost-effective way to blast parts and components up to 5'x5'x5'. Our cabinet is set up with aluminum oxide on a daily basis but can be switched over to other media within an hour. For surface prep of small parts, a cabinet is the most efficient means to provide a clean surface for industrial coatings, powder coating, plating, or other finishing applications.

At BlasTek, we use soda blasting for a variety of applications. Perhaps the most popular application is smoke and soot removal. Soda blasting produces a much finer finish than, for example, sandblasting on wood objects, making it the ideal solution for clients looking for a more refined finish on their wood restoration projects. We also do a lot of surface prep work for clients that deal with soft and malleable metals, such as aluminum, and higher-grade metals such as stainless steel.

Blast Room

Media blasting is not a one-dimensional process. In fact, when you think about all the different types and sizes of abrasives available, there are endless profiles and finishes that can be achieved via abrasive blasting. From hard abrasives such as garnet and Black Beauty to soft agri-media such as corn cob grit and walnut shell, we have the equipment and technical know-how to properly utilize virtually every abrasive.

As mobile blasting has its time and its place, so does the blast room. The blast room is a good alternative to mobile blasting as its better suited for more weldments that aren't fixed. They can be sent to our shop where can blast paint, rust, mill scale, and other surface contaminants in a controlled environment. The blast room is very similar to a blast cabinet except larger. Being that the blast room too is an isolated environment, it provides great productivity and a quality end product sure to be free of any condensation on metals. The dimensions of the room are 70'x21'x14'.

Basket Blaster

Basket blasters are utilized as means to clean, strip, and deburr hundreds to thousands of small components. Stripping smaller objects with traditional blasting methods is not productive. The basket blaster features a 3 cubic foot rotating basket and  3 oscillating 1/4 siphon nozzles that are set to automatically run without the need of an operator manning the machine at all times.

Bake Off Oven

In certain circumstances when dealing with ferrous metals, using an oven to bake off multiple layers of paint, undercoatings, caulking, grease, stickers, powder coating, body fillers, and other oxidizable substances is more appropriate and cost-effective than blasting alone. Baking before stripping with blast media gives the benefits of faster removal process with finer grit media that produces a superior etched finish for better coating adhesion. All that is left after baking is a thin layer of ash that is easily removed in the blast cabinet or blast room. The oven size is 13'x7'x6'. It is made to fit many small to medium items or individual metal objects that take up the entire oven.
