Similarly one may ask, why shot blasting is done?
Shot blasting is a technological process ofremoving various impurities from different surfaces by usingabrasive. It is used for a surface protection and alsoprior-preparation of surfaces prior to further processing, such aswelding, colouring, etc.
Likewise, is shot blasting dangerous? Abrasive blasting operations can create highlevels of dust and noise. Abrasive material and the surface beingblasted may contain toxic materials (e.g., lead paint, silica) thatare hazardous to workers. Silica sand (crystalline)can cause silicosis, lung cancer, and breathing problems in exposedworkers.
Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the difference between shot blasting and shot peening?
The biggest difference between shot blasting and shotpeening is the end result. Shot blasting uses abrasivesto clean or smooth the surface to prepare it for processing;shot peening uses the plasticity of metal to prolong thelife of the part. Shot peening usually involves steel,ceramic, or glass shots.
What does a Wheelabrator do?
The Wheelabrator is a rapid, economical, highlyadaptable and efficient way of removing surface impurities by meansof throwing metal shot or grit against the object being cleaned --a method more compactly described as airless blastcleaning.
