Shot Blast

The Abrasive Blasting Industry uses many different types of media, but one thing they all have in common is the need to collect and re-use the spent media. For media types like steel shot or glass beads, manually collecting that media can be time-consuming and has the potential to cause injury. By eliminating the manual collection process you can not only increase productivity, but create a better ergonomic environment for your employees. For selecting the vacuum it is very important to go with a company that has experience moving blast media with a vacuum. The aerodynamic features coupled with the weight of the media can make moving the media very challenging. Having the proper levels of vacuum and the correct hose sizes go a long way in ensuring that you will have a system that works. American Vacuum has worked with all different types of blasting media and has that expertise to build a system for your needs.

We have worked with many types of blasting media:

  • Aluminum Oxide
  • Corn Cob Grit
  • Glass Beads
  • Steel Grit
  • Steel Shot
  • Walnut Shells
  • Crushed Glass
