Blasting & Preparation

The Means and Methods for Every Shop Job

55' PIPEWe provide all types of surface preparation services. Our goal is to perform the surface preparation only as needed, and we have controls in place to prevent the need for costly and time-consuming re-blasting of previously completed areas.

Our experienced blasters have successfully completed a wide range of blasting projects. As a shop, we are SSPC-QP3 certified, so we are fully capable of managing the complex nature of blasting and surface preparation. Our aim is to get the job done right the first time.

Machined Shot Blast – Shot blasting is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly method for preparing steel that comes to our shop. Shot blasting strips, cleans and profiles simultaneously, leaving the steel surface ready for immediate coating. Our time- and labor-saving process enables us to meet your deadlines.

Conventional Blast – Our experienced blasters have successfully completed a wide range of blasting projects. Select craftsmen are SSPC-C7 trained and certified, giving them the knowledge required to get the job done right the first time. Our abrasive blasting equipment includes numerous blast pots from 600-pound units to bulk units capable of running multiple nozzles, which allows us to handle large jobs.

Internal Blasting – We use internal blasting to achieve the necessary cleanliness and anchor profile for proper coating adhesion on internal steel surfaces. Much of the time, these internal substrates are not visible once in production. Our surface preparation allows coatings to perform at a high level and prevents your operations from being interrupted.

Specialty Abrasives – Our blasters are trained and experienced in using many types of specialty abrasives. Proper abrasive selection plays a significant role in the efficiency and productivity of a surface preparation application. We take the time and effort to ensure that our results meet your needs and the job specification.

Water Blasting – High-pressure water cleaning is used to clean all types of substrates. Cleaning applications at various pressures start at 4,000 psig and exceed 24,000 psig depending on the degree of cleanliness specified.

Chemical Treatment – The initial step in any surface preparation procedure is pre-cleaning the surface to remove any contaminants that cannot be removed by subsequent mechanical surface profiling.
