Media Blasting is used to remove paint, clean, and de-burr metal, and to prepare metal surfaces for powder coating. At Blue Lake Powder Coating we feel it is essential to clean and prep every part properly before coating. It is our prep process that sets us apart from our competition. If a part is not cleaned and prepared properly, the durability of the powder coating, or painting will fail quickly. When it comes to media blasting your projects, Blue Lake has the equipment it takes to do the job!
Pass Through Blaster
Capacity 30” x 52” x 25’ This blaster has (6) blasting wheels to propel the media. The wheels are positioned to hit every angle of the parts as they pass through. Our Pass Through Blaster is a fully automated process, allowing us to adjust the speed of the line as the parts pass through. This machine is used for high production runs of railings, gates, grills, channel, angle iron, etc...
Cabinet Blasting Booth
Capacity 12’ x 8’ x 22’ The large blast booth is used to blast large components such as trailers, car frames, and large structural weldments. Our cabinet has a full recovery floor to recycle the media as we are blasting. This greatly increases productivity, and efficiency. This blasting process is much the same as Sandblasting, the only difference is we use a different blasting media.
Capacity 6’ Dia. x 2,000 lbs. The table blast machine is ideal for blasting tables, chairs, heavy steel plates etc... This machine uses (1) blast wheel which propels the media. The parts are placed on a 6’ diameter table which rotates allowing the blast media to contact the entire area of the parts on the table. It only takes three minutes for this machine to run a complete cycle.
Capacity 36” x 800 lbs. The Tumble blast machine is used to blast small production parts. This machine uses (1) blast wheel to propel the media. The parts are placed on a rubber belt which rotates on bearing rollers allowing the parts to “tumble” as the media is propelled from the top of the chamber. This machine allows us to blast small production parts very efficiently. It only takes two minutes for this machine to run an complete cycle.
Small Cabinet Blasting Booth
