Shot blasting to a SA-2-1/2 surface





November 20, 2008

1. We are going to Shot Blast a Mild Steel Plate <7mm Thickness (surface) with S-330 Steel Shots ,Hardness of Shots is 45~50 HRC, the surface hardness of MS Surface is around <30 HRC.Blast wheel Speed 2800RPM .Shot Blasting machine is mechanical.

Question = What would be the impact (indentation)I.e Roughness Value, of steel shots
S-330 on this surface after shot blasting ? what is the method and measurement indentation on surface after shot blasting ? Can we use the same size High Carbon Cut wire shots (conditioned) on this surface ? Generally what is the indentation value of s-330 on normal shot blasting on Mild steel surface with Hardness <30HRC?

Hi, Ashish. I think you would need to get a copy of the spec from the Swedish Institute for Standards to determine if the media you intend to use complies with the spec or not.

I believe it's actually "Sa.2.5" rather than "SA-2-1/2", but I don't think you'll find any published correlation between blasting standards and depths of indentation at various hardnesses, but maybe you will.

Please see letter 12526 for more complete explanations.
