Tumble Slurry Blast

Tumble Slurry Blasting by SPC

Tumble slurry blasting, also known as wet blasting, is a powerful process that provides superior cleaning performance in a short amount of time. Sharretts Plating Company now offers tumble slurry blasting in addition to its wide assortment of electroplating and metal finishing services. It's the ideal solution to removing grease and other substances from surfaces to prepare them for painting, coating and other essential manufacturing processes.

Three-Step Cleaning Process Works for All Types of Metal Parts and Materials

Our slurry blasting can be used on all types of metals including aluminum and other white metal components to effectively remove grease, oils, carbon deposits and oxides from surfaces. The three-step process involves prepping the surface with an alkali hot water wash, followed by blasting using an abrasive slurry and concluding with an alkali hot water rinse. This innovative process can clean a large number of parts or materials in a matter of minutes.

A Slurry Blasting System That Is Safe as Well as Effective

The SPC tumble slurry blasting process makes use of a high-speed blast wheel that accelerates and discharges the slurry at a high velocity and does not require the use of compressed air. While the abrasive slurry is a powerful cleaning force, it is applied in a manner that will not harm your materials or parts. The slurry is discharged in a controlled pattern that is automated by the blasting machine, ensuring maximum safety and efficiency.

An Eco-Friendly Parts Cleaning Process

If yours is like most manufacturing companies these days, going green is a primary concern. You're probably not only looking for ways to incorporate more environmentally friendly processes into your own operations, but also seeking the same commitment to the environment in the third-party services you use. You'll be pleased to learn that SPC tumble slurry blasting is a closed-loop process where both media and detergent are recycled, so there is no dumping or disposing of waste materials required.

Other Key Tumble Slurry Blasting Benefits

In addition to providing a clean, smooth surface on metal parts and materials, tumble slurry blasting from SPC provides a number of important benefits. The wet blasting helps to prevent the penetration of the media into the substrate, so very fine media can be used to produce a highly effective cleaning result. Even irregular surfaces will experience a deep and thorough cleaning. The process also provides an excellent surface for plating and bonding applications. Thin metal parts or materials can be cleaned effectively without the risk of heat warping.
