Low-carbon cast steel shot

Product characteristics

Low-carbon cast steel shot is produced from high-quality materials with low content of carbon (C), phosphorus (P) and sulphur (S) and pure, precisely dosed alloying elements. Grain microstructure of low carbon steel shot is a compromise between its high hardness and grain durability and typical low wearing, which causes approx. 20 % higher durability. High quality of low-carbon shot can only be achieved by advanced technology and material discipline, very effective melting and proper tempering heat treatment.

Advantages of low-carbon cast steel shot: higher durability in comparison with high-carbon steel shot for approx. 20-40%, lower dust emission, cost saving in wheel blasting machines operation e.g. lower turbine blades wear at least for approx. 30%. Low-carbon cast steel shot features a very low grain spending for cleaning of 1 m2 of surface.
