Choose the suitable steel shot steel grit and cut wire

Steel shots for shot blasting machines generally include cast steel shots, stainless steel shots, cut steel wire shots, steel grit, iron shots, aluminum shots, etc.
The choice of steel shot needs to be determined according to the material of the workpiece to be cleaned, the required surface roughness and surface hardness.

If the steel shot model is not selected properly, not only the ideal cleaning effect will not be achieved, but it will even affect the normal operation of the shot blasting machine.
Mesblate recommends that you pay attention to the following points when choosing to clean up shots:

1. For cleaning non-ferrous metal workpieces, aluminum shot or stainless steel shot is generally used;
Clean up ordinary steel and its welded parts, castings, etc., use cast steel shots and cut steel wire shots.

2. The larger the diameter of the steel shot, the higher the surface roughness after cleaning, and the higher the cleaning efficiency;

3. Irregular shaped steel grit or steel wire cut shots have higher cleaning efficiency than spherical shots, but the surface roughness is relatively high;

4. From the point of view of use time, the high cleaning efficiency projectile wears the equipment relatively quickly.
But in terms of production efficiency, wear is not fast.

The hardness of the steel shot is directly proportional to the cleaning speed and inversely proportional to the service life.

So the hardness is high, the cleaning speed is fast, but it is easily broken, the life is short, and the consumption is large.

The hardness is too low, it is easy to deform, reducing the cleaning effect and cleaning efficiency,

Moderate hardness, good rebound performance, not easy to break and deform, HRC40-50 has the best effect.
