Bristle Blaster – Electric & Pneumatic

The MBX Bristle Blaster offers distinct advantages over the conventional surface preparation methods and will yield superior results with far less time and effort.
Bristle Blasting is a new, simple maintenance solution that removes corrosion and generates an anchor profile in a single step. It is suitable for spot repairs as well as larger areas where other processes are prohibitive – does not use/produce environmentally unsafe or hazardous material.

Advantages and Performance of the Bristle Blaster Technology
  • Removes corrosion, mill scale and protective coatings

Surface cleanliness with Near White/White Metal appearance – no grinding or polishing during operation

  • Creates a 2.5 – 3.3 mil surface texture/anchor profile

Benchmark steel is API 5L pipeline steel – profile will vary with hardness of substrate.

  • Improves integrity of treated surfaces

Generates compressive residual stress along treated surfaces providing crack growth resistance, improved fatigue live and improved corrosion resistance

  • Negligible heat generation

Treated surfaces free of thermal damage and/or heat markings

  • Cleans and profiles quickly and economically

Using long lasting, safe Bristle Blaster Belts eliminates the need for costly abrasive blast equipment
