Sandblasting technology for silo systems and tanks

Almost everyone has heard of sandblasting technology here and there. Those interested in motor vehicles are definitely familiar with sandblasting, but sandblasting is not only used in car and motorcycle construction. From a technological point of view, the sandblasting principle is relatively old, but has undergone enormous physical and mechanical developments in the last 10 years, making it one of the most effective systems available.

Nevertheless, abrasive and partially abrasive sandblasting technology is popular in many branches of industry. But why is sandblasting so popular in this way?

What exactly is sandblasting?

Sandblasting is a process in which a surface is treated with a fine-grained granulate under high pressure. It is used in trade and manufacturing to clean surfaces and create surface roughness.

The functionality can be described as follows: the abrasive used for blasting is contained in a specially designed container, also known as a sandblaster or sandblasting machine. This is connected to the blasting gun with a hose, which is also attached to an air compressor. When the trigger of the gun is pulled, the abrasive granulate is sprayed onto the surface under high pressure of 4-10 bar, for example, where it achieves the abrasive effect.

Dirt particles on the surface are removed instantly without damaging the underlying, actual layer of the workpiece. Stubborn dirt can be easily removed from metal and stone surfaces in this way. Wooden and metal surfaces can be roughened for subsequent painting.
But what specifically does sandblasting do in this way?

Sandblasting is often used in this way due to its flexibility. Thanks to the huge selection of different sandblasting media, sandblasting can be used in many different areas. It is even used in the food industry when it comes to cleaning machines. Both hard and soft surfaces can be processed for the desired purposes, as there are hard, soft and dirt-free blasting abrasives.

A few frequently used blasting abrasives that should be mentioned here are Corundum abrasive (hard), glass bead abrasive (medium-hard), nutshell abrasive (soft) or dry ice abrasive, which dissolves smoothly into gas after blasting.

We blast silo systems and tanks for you competently and to a high standard.

Sandblasting equipment is relatively expensive, and experience and technical expertise are required to use this technology.

Our teams have the experience to apply the sandblasting technology even on a rope, without scaffolding. We can provide a number of references and this makes our teams proud. Using sandblasting technology in ATEX is no problem for our safety management. We meet the technically diverse requirements without any problems.

What are the expenses?

The purchase of a sandblasting machine involves some costs that are too high for most private users. A mid-range sandblaster with gun costs €150-200. Apart from this, a compressor must be purchased that can achieve the necessary power.

The prices for this start from €600 upwards. Of course, the blasting material used must also be purchased. For small and medium-sized companies, a sandblasting machine can certainly be a lucrative purchase. Sandblasting has many advantages over other surface treatment methods.
