Choosing a Shot Blaster
Shot blasting is often chosen over floor grinders and scarifiers when the project requires the concrete to be profiled, cleaned, and stripped to its bare surface, free of any coatings, rust, or residues. Because it performs these tasks in one step, it saves time and reduces labor costs.
Shot blasters operate by using a wheel to turn paddle-like blades that aggressively propel steel shot toward the surface using centrifugal force. An attached dust collector removes dust and debris while the shot is recirculated back into the hopper and reused. Shot blasters are used for the following projects:Â
- Removing paint, rust, and epoxy coatings
- Adding a rough profile to concrete for a non-slip surface
- Preparing a concrete surface to add fresh paint or a coating
