Soda Blaster Sales

The SodaBlaster System is a revolutionary concept that can strip paint, rust and clean all surfaces in a fraction of the normal time required.

The Soda Blasting process is ideal for cleaning all types of delicate equipment and surfaces. It eliminates sanding, scrubbing and abrasive blasting. Safe and easy to use and powered, in most cases by conventional shop air compressors, or portable compressors, Soda Blasting units are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate any job requirement from the small to the large.

Why SodaBlast?

Unique Physical Properties

The cleaning effectiveness of SodaClean Maintenance Plus baking soda is a direct result of its physical properties. These qualities allow the media to be used in a wide variety of applications. The magic of baking soda is due to:

Granulation resulting in a consistent sizing of the cleaning media
Shape is multi sided and leads to an improved cleaning capability
Hardness is such that it will not damage delicate substrates
Friability (easily crumbled) enhances the cleaning process
pH of baking soda media (8.2) greatly reduces any caustic effect
These properties provide the cleaning power of baking soda media:

1. High friability with consistent angular fractures results in smaller, uniformly angular cleaning particles. This feature ensures that all surfaces of a substrate can be cleaned effectively.

2. Baking soda media is very soft (2.4 on Mohs Scale of Hardness) and is a friable cleaning agent. This means that blasting with baking soda is like throwing a snowball at a fence whereas other less friable media (plastic at 3.5 and glass at 4.5 on Mohs Hardness Scale) is like throwing a stone at a fence.

3. Baking soda media imparts a cleaning effect where other abrasives use a hit and cut method to clean or chop away the coating.

4. Baking soda crystals begin at less than 70 microns. At impact, the crystal crumbles and gently imparts the energy into a cleaning mass. Much of this energy is transferred perpendicular to the angle of the blast across the entire structure. The result is a clean surface.

5. Easily removes carbon, grease, oils, gasket material, surface corrosion, paint and coatings from a variety of alloys, plastics and composites without substrate damage or distortion, and leaves hard anodized coatings intact.

6. Reduces cycle time by cleaning, de-greasing, de-painting all in one step. Unlike glass beads or plastic media, baking soda requires no pre-wash and its water solubility allows for complete rinsing, eliminating the risk of spent media lodging in tight spaces or critical passageways.
