Using premium components and heavy weight 7GA. steel construction these systems not only provide precision cleaning, but long term reliability and durability.

A general purpose high density composition having good wear life. F-33 is a very durable and fracture resistant composition able to stand up to pressures generated in large vibrators and high energy equipment. The greater weight per cubic foot of the high density composition allows faster radius and deburring of parts than standard compositions. Bulk weight is 110 to 115 pounds per cubic foot.

The Gibson roller conveyor blast system is a fully automated blast system designed for 24 hour production. Systems are typically used in applications blasting heavier parts at a high rate. Blast systems are easily integrated into the rest of the production flow such as paint lines.
