Steel shots are made from molten steel (when steel is in a liquid state) with the help of the atomization process. It is basically abrasive materials used for cleaning, rust removing, cutting hard surfaces, in the petroleum industry, metallurgy industry, and many more.
In the metallurgy industry, there are many materials is available as shot blasting material, such as steel shots, aluminum shot, steel grit, sand, steel abrasive, zinc shots, etc. but steel shot is one of the common materials is used in Sand Blasting Machine for their numerous applications.
Steel shots are available in different sizes and shapes such as granular, spherical, in grit form.
Properties of Steel shots exhibits several essential properties that make it suitable for industrial applications. One of the key properties is its hardness. Steel shots typically has a hardness of 40 to 60 HRC (Rockwell Hardness Scale), which enables it to effectively remove rust, paint, scale, and other contaminants from surfaces.
