Titan Abrasive Systems to Provide NuWeld with First Blast Room

Titan Abrasive Systems, a designer and manufacturer of surface preparation, surface finishing and sandblasting equipment, announced the purchase of a custom blast rooms by NuWeld, Inc.

NuWeld's first-ever blast room will be used to profile the piping that NuWeld fabricates for its gas company customers, preparing it for painting. "The blast room, along with new blasting equipment, will allow NuWeld to significantly increase productivity. This is critical, not only because the company has increased its blasting workload through the acquisition of new customers, but also because the piping, which used to be no more than 1-2 inches in diameter, has grown to 24 inches; greater diameters mean more surface area, thus more blasting," said a spokesperson.

Titan is also providing a reclaim system with the room-an auger system with bucket elevator. This will also allow NuWeld to recover the blast media, a task that was previously impossible in the makeshift area of the facility in which the blasting was being performed.

According to Noah Barrett, a NuWeld maintenance technician, the ability to recover blast media leads to several advantages. "We have been looking to switch to steel grit to blast our piping, but it is extremely expensive," he said. "When you are not recovering it, it is simply impractical to use it. However, with the addition of the reclaim system to the Titan Blast Room, it is now economically feasible for us to use the steel grit, which will produce a much better profile on our piping, create better paint adhesion and, ultimately, generate a better-quality product."

After blasting and painting, the piping is brought back to the site, where NuWeld personnel hook it up to gas production units-units that the company also restores in house when necessary. In fact, not only does NuWeld blast these gas production units, but they are also certified to fabricate pressure vessels, water tanks and burner units-all of which will eventually be blasted in the Titan room and painted. The Titan blast room also provides a larger, more organized area to handle these massive pieces than the previous, more restricted area-especially the 24" piping.
