Abrasive Blast Cleaning Services

Our 10,500 square feet factory unit has a large indoor working area as well as a large concreted yard to the front allowing for easy loading and unloading of large loads.

The purpose-built abrasive blast cleaning booth is 15m long by 5.5m wide allowing us to carry out works and clean a wide variety of items ranging from 40 ft articulated lorry trailers, shipping containers, structural steels, and more using the more aggressive, harder abrasive cleaning techniques. When using abrasive blast cleaners on automotive bodies, motorcycles, alloy wheels, garden furniture, and thin sheet mouldings, our specialists use lower pressure, finer grade, softer abrasives.

Abrasive cleaning facilities

Randell Industrial have been involved in the abrasive blast cleaning industry for over 35 years.

In our opinion, there are a great many contributing factors to achieving the correct finish to the substrate without causing any damage i.e. excessive surface profiling, heat warping/distortion etc.

These range from choosing the correct abrasive cleaning material and technique for the material being blast cleaned, impact angle, blasting pressure, wet or dry blasting media, required surface finish etc.

Each of these points is considered before commencing any blast cleaning works to ensure correct profile is achieved for any subsequent works – powder coating, wet spray, polishing, weld inspection etc.

We use a full range of abrasive cleaners ranging from steel grit to provide a coarse anchor pattern for thermal metal spray application and protective coatings down to superfine glass media and soda for delicate substrates such as aluminium and GRP.

Examples of abrasive cleaning media used

  • Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Crushed walnut shells
  • Glass beads
  • Recycled glass
  • Aluminium oxide
  • Copper slag
  • Steel grit

Practically anything can be abrasive blast cleaned provided you use the correct equipment and materials to carry out the task in hand.

The abrasive blast cleaning booth has a very efficient dust extraction system fitted to allow for maximum visibility during the cleaning works.

We also have two large self-contained cabinets that we use when the items need a more delicate touch or are simply too small to use the large blast room. These are particularly useful for the preparation of intricate parts prior to coating or polishing using glass beads.
