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:
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.
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.
