Does anyone know who does mobile media blasting?

Does anyone know of a mobile media blasting company in our area?

The one guy in North Alabama that I knew of that does that had broken his leg and was OOC until after the first of the year. We had to get it done quickly and had three cars that needed it at the same time so we bought the equipment and now offer media blasting as as one of our services.

That's one way to solve a problem and fill a needed market at the same time! What forms of media do you do?

We can use several types depending on the application. One type that we have used is a coal slag based media that is very effective and inexpensive but is a one time use media. Another type is ceramic based and is recyclable.

Wow! Those are definitely some new ones. So I'm assuming you can do the usual sand, powder, and walnut shells?

Yes, we can do those as well. The types of media used in blasting has grown so much in recent years that most people haven't heard of the more recent medias.

Sand generates heat and can cause warping. Soda blasted parts have to be washed with hot water before paint will stick and nut shells are a bit pricey. All were great when they were the newest thing out but technology has even come to the media blasting trade.

It is using a byproduct instead of just dumping it as waste. We use it until there is nothing left but dust.

That's what I was assuming. Coal slag must fetch a pretty penny.

One of the R's of the recycling pyramid is 'reuse'. I think using what would be coal production waste would fall under this category. It doesn't get more efficient than using garbage as fuel.
