Chapel Steel offers shot blasting services for descaling and improving steel plate surfaces. Customers utilize these services to facilitate robotic welding and laser cutting methods that require an enhanced surface condition.
Shot blasting is an abrasive descaling process that removes surface level debris resulting in enhanced material condition. This process effectively strips steel plate products containing rust or mill scale. Chapel Steel utilizes a Wheelabrator system, a state-of-the-art shot blasting machine, capable of accommodating steel plate up to 124" wide with a maximum height of 14". Chapel Steel’s shot blasting applications can be applied to raw material, parts, cut-outs, and weldments. Chapel Steel offers various commercial finishes that meet SSPC standards. Common industry applications include shipbuilding, railcar manufacturing, structural fabrication, and more.
