Blastrac is the most experienced manufacturer of steel blasting machines in the world. Our horizontal and vertical steel blasters are designed for high quality and efficient performance. In addition, Blastrac steel blasting machines are designed to comply with stringent industry standards for environmental friendliness and safety. Each steel blaster must be equipped with a dust collection system for work place safety and cleanliness. Like any other Blastrac technology, steel blasting is purely mechanical and therefore very clean. It does not use chemical products and does not waste valuable drinking water.
WHAT IS STEEL BLASTING?
Blastrac horizontal and vertical steel blasting systems are the most effective and environmentally friendly methods of removing paint, coatings, non-skid and other contaminants from steel surfaces. Blastrac steel blasters use steel shot and angular steel grit, or a mixture of the two in a variety of sizes allowing the operator to achieve a wide range of anchor patterns (surface profiles) and roughness needed for almost any type of coating application. After the steel blasting process, the surface is immediately ready for the application of a new coating.
HORIZONTAL & VERTICAL STEEL BLASTERS
Blastrac has developed steel blasting machines for both horizontal and vertical applications. Horizontal steel blasting machines are used to prepare steel surfaces such as storage tank steel bottom plates and roof plates, ship decks, hatch covers, tank tops, barges and other marine vessels, bridge decks, helicopter landing decks, and walkway’s on offshore drilling platforms. Vertical steel blasting machines are used in conjunction with specially developed Blastrac cone, dome and floating roof rigging systems which are constructed on top of the roof and/or floating walkway.
