After tempering the grit is mechanically screened to pr - oduce 10 grades conforming to SAE standard specifications for blasting grits.
Grades of differing sizes and/or hardness specifically for specialised applications, i.e. roll etching, granite cutting are also produced.
PanaGrit™ is produced under a controlled manufacturing process to achieve a product of uniform hardness, density and microstructure; coupled with good toughness for durability.
These factors result in an abrasive of correct hardness and shape to perform its cleaning function as well as an extended abrasive life.
PanaGrit™ is widely used as a media for descaling steel components prior to coating. In this application the media is used almost exclusively in compressed air recovery blast rooms. T he angular shape and relative hardness of PanaGrit™ ensures rapid cleaning rates and excellent recyclability.
PanaGrit™ is also widely used in the foundry casing industry to remove sand from castings when the castings have been exposed to ultra high temperatures and the sand is baked on to such an extent that steel shot cannot remove it.
If steel components cannot be cleaned utilising centrifugal wheel airless blasting equipment and steel shot, PanaGrit™ offers the next viable alternative.
