In stone and marble industry shot blasting process is used for preparing roughness on the outer surface of components, so that bounding with the cement or any holding chemical remain sturdy
Sometimes shot blasting process is also used to produce rough texture on the surface, so that stone/marble looks unique in nature.
Paver Blocks are shot blasted to produce roughness on its upper surface, to make them non-slippery in nature.
This type of machine consists of special rubber belt conveyor at inlet and outlet as material handling systems. The stone/marble/granite slabs to be blasted are placed on inlet side of the rubber belt conveyor, from where it travels forward and enters into the inlet tunnel. Inside inlet tunnel blast wheels fires the abrasive at high velocity on the forward moving slabs & cleans them from upper surface or we can say textured them.
