There are a number of different types and models of shot blaster available today. The two main types are the walk-behind and the ride-on models. The blasting path of the machines can range from 4” to 32”. They can remove between 200 and 3,000 square feet of surface each hour based on the model.
Naturally, the walk-behind units are best suited when working in smaller environments. Those who have to clear out large open areas might find that the ride-on units are a better option.
The shot blasters are very good at removing chemical contaminants, dirt and grit, and the top layers of concrete in most cases. However, they have trouble when it comes to removing heavy and thick elastomeric coatings.
When choosing a shot blaster, the contractor needs to consider the type of job they are doing and just how much of the surface they are going to need to remove. There are machines out there capable of taking off only a small portion of the surface, as well as those that can remove a substantial portion. Find the machine that works the best for your particular job.
