Airblast Abrasives has opened two purpose built production facilities for the production of High Carbon Steel Abrasives covering an area of 4.000 m2. To produce a uniform spherical grain, the plant is using state of the art technology to fabricate the high quality product:
• Centrifugalizing process instead of high water jet streams to atomize the liquid steel into more spherical and uniform particles.
• A second heat quenching gives the abrasive a more uniform chemical and internal structure, making the abrasive less brittle.
• Air quenching instead of water quenching results in fewer micro cracks and thus a better durability of the abrasive.
