Professional Heavy Machinery Blasting in Farming, Agriculture & Mining

sandblasting melbourne

ProStrip Sandblasting uses powerful commercial and industrial abrasive blasting techniques to remove surface contaminants for heavy machinery restoration, such as with farm equipment, and agricultural and mining machinery. While traditional heavy equipment blasting techniques use an excessive number of materials that are threatening to the environment, our abrasive sandblasting technique is designed for heavy machinery cleaning of any size and other agricultural systems without damage or producing secondary waste.

With other farm equipment, agricultural machinery and mining machinery surfaces requiring more abrasive treatments, our powerful sandblasting equipment will be able to blast away and restore your toughest wrench in the works.

Blasting of Heavy Farm & Agricultural Machinery

Sand is one of the most abrasive media used in the blasting of heavy machinery; especially within the farming and agricultural industry. Heavy equipment cleaning plays an important role in the lifespan of agricultural machinery and farm equipment, as well as to protect the integrity of the products created with it.

Abrasive blasting is considered one of the most effective and efficient ways to restore your heavy farming and agricultural tools and equipment to its original condition without causing damage.

Servicing all your heavy machinery restoration needs, among others, ProStrip Sandblasting specializes in:

  • Water tanks
  • Dip tanks and troughs
  • Silos
  • Sheds and farmhouses
  • Farm equipment
  • Tractors and harvesters

Heavy Machinery Restoration for Successful Farming

Abrasive sandblasting can be used on almost any heavy material surface of commercial and industrial farm equipment; for example, for tractor cleaning and restoration. Of course, this is dependent on the correct mix and ratio of media, air pressure, volume and blast nozzle.

This is why it is important to choose the right heavy equipment blasters in Melbourne who are not only qualified but possess the professional knowledge and expertise to carry out a successful blasting action plan which extends the longevity of your commercial and industrial equipment and components.

Here’s what you need to take into account when undertaking abrasive heavy equipment blasting for successful farming:

Air compressor
The air compressor is one of the most important factors in the successful abrasive blasting of heavy agricultural machinery and farming equipment. This is due to its unique function of providing air pressure and volume which move the sandblasting media through the hose and blast nozzle at high velocity to remove unwanted coatings for heavy machinery restoration.

Blast nozzle
Different blast nozzles are used for different surfaces which require heavy equipment cleaning. Blast nozzles essentially maximize the impact speed of the abrasive used.


The abrasive is what does all the heavy machinery cleaning and surface preparation work. There are many factors that affect the performance of the abrasive used. These include the quality of the abrasive to treat grime, corrosion or any unwanted surfaces; the composition of the surface; the type of abrasive; recycle potential to maintain environmental health and safety; and the quality of the cleaning.

It is also important to consider the shape and hardness of the abrasive as the shape of the abrasive to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of the abrasive heavy equipment blasting process. On the other hand, the hardness determines the amount of dust produced and the recycle potential.

For this reason, many abrasive blasters in Melbourne opt to create a media blend that allows them to supplement their abrasive blasting technique across a range of fragile and hard surfaces to ensure heavy machinery restoration for the maintenance of farm tools and equipment as well as agricultural machinery for successful farming.

Abrasive Machinery Blasting on Mining Equipment

Mining machinery and equipment requires regular maintenance to continue normal functioning for everyday use. But, this can be difficult given the fact that the external material of mining equipment is constantly exposed to corrosive environments.

ProStrip Sandblasting only makes use of powerful, industry-leading abrasive blasting techniques to remove contaminants from heavy machinery, corrosion and external unwanted material from mining equipment and machinery in preparation for further repair and reconditioning.

Among many others, we are specialists in stripping:

  • Loaders
  • Dozers
  • Tippers
  • Regular mining machinery
  • Mining parts
  • Mining equipment


We ensure to work accordingly with your team to ensure that all OH&S standards are adhered to on-site and in cases where the equipment is removed from the site. We also provide environmental impact statements on request to ensure we maintain or exceed eco-standards.

What is Abrasive Blasting on Mining Equipment?

Abrasive machinery blasting is the ideal solution for prolonging the life of mining machinery and equipment. It not only eliminates corrosion but also reduces the effects of abrasions that are caused by wear-and-tear, operating in extreme heat conditions, chemical exposure and more.

In using abrasive machinery blasting techniques to restore mining equipment, damaged areas can be stripped to its original foundation in preparation for further refurbishments, such as priming, painting and adding a protective coating.

Sandblasting is the most common form of abrasive machinery blasting in the mining industry. ProStrip Sandblasting has the most effective and cost-efficient sandblasting equipment in the industry.

The Benefits of Heavy Equipment & Machinery Blasting

Apart from the restoration of agricultural machinery, farm equipment and mining machinery, there are many benefits to using heavy abrasive machinery blasting in farming and agriculture:

  • It does not contain toxic or harsh chemicals that may affect the material of equipment.
  • Eliminates the presence of any bacteria or microorganism growth; in turn, preventing safety and health hazards.
  • Abrasive blasting is one of the most effective and fastest cleaning and restoration techniques available for heavy farm and agriculture equipment.
  • Sand can be used instead of water for extensive restoration and cleaning.
  • Using abrasive blasting, instead of traditional heavy blasting materials, removes the risk of an impact on the local habitat by reducing waste.
