Low carbon steel shot has a long life and is extremely durable because it is relatively crack free. Since low carbon after shotting has a largely bainitic microstructure, heat treatment is not required. In most high carbon shot, surface cracking will occur during atomisation which is due to the high carbon content and the resultant high hardness. During the subsequent necessary heat treatment it is possible that the already existing cracks could get even larger.
Characteristics Due to its shape, FERROPLUS steel shot is significantly more abrasive whilst retaining the same consumption advantages of FERROSAD due to their identical chemical analysis and bainitic microstructure.
Application Blast cleaning in wheel machines and compressed air systems.
The MTS Structural Steel mix is specially designed for rust removal and descaling of beams, profiles and metal sheets with a thickness > 5 mm. The mix is a combination of our low carbon abrasives FERROSAD and FERROPLUS. The size and mix can be individually tailored to meet the specific needs of the
customer. The material is supplied ready mixed in 20 kg bags
Fast cleaning with a higher RZ profile without the need to use sharp edged grit
Generates savings through shorter blasting times and low consumption of abrasives
Lower levels of dust produced resulting in less deposits on the beams, profiles and metal sheets
Optimum surface coverage during blasting leading to a uniform surface
To ensure a consistent hogh quality for FERROSAD, we use only low residual depp drawing quality scrap. In the 50 years of production we have always followed a policy of continuous improvment. All manufacturing processes are certified to the worldwide quality standart ISO 9001 and regular internal and external audits are carried out. Or products are produced to a consistent uniform quality. We take serously our respnsibility to protect the environment, conserve raw materials and ernergy resources whilst maintaining our quality standards. OUr policies incorporate practices which satisfy ISO 9001 energy managment systems and the ISO 14001 environmental certification. Let us convince you of our FERROSAD quality.
