Product Description and Technical Data:
PanaShot™ is manufactured by melting high quality steel scrap that is subsequently atomised by pouring streams of the molten steel through high-pressure water jets.
The resultant shots are then homogenised by reheating and then subsequently refined during quenching.
The shots are then dried and reheated in a tempering furnace to produce the applicable hardness. The tempered shots are then mechanically screened to produce 11 grades conforming to SAE standard specifications for blasting shots.
Grades of differing sizes and /or hardness's specifically for specialised applications i.e. shot peening are also produced.
PanaShot™ is produced under a controlled manufacturing process to achieve a product of uniform harness, density and microstructure; coupled with good toughness for durability.
These factors result in abrasive of sufficient hardness to perform its cleaning function as well as an extended life.
PanaShot™ is widely used as a media for descaling steel components prior to coating. I n this application the media is used almost exclusively in centrifugal wheel airless blasting equipment.
The round shape and relative softness of PanaShot™ ensures excessive wear is not imparted on the equipment.
PanaShot™ is also widely used in the foundry casting industry to remove sand from castings after removal from the mould.
When used in conjunction with the appropriate equipment, PanaShot™ is the ultimate abrasive blast media for steel cleaning or preparation due to its durability.
