What is Wheel Blasting?

Wheel blasting is a different method of blasting a surface in order to clean a metal product. Instead of using high pressure air to propel beads, a spinning wheel is used. The centrifugal force of the spinning wheel propels beads at an adjustable rate in order to fine tune the abrasiveness of the clean. A wheel machine is a efficient method of blasting, since the abrasive (typically steel shot, cut wire, pellet, or grit) is recycled throughout the operation.
