Alluvial River Garnet
Alluvial River Garnet’s unique characteristics improve production rates, reduce abrasive usage, and lower disposal and clean-up costs. The sub-angular shape, hardness, and bulk density of Alluvial River Garnet provides fast cutting, ideal for removing thin to medium thickness coatings, mill scale, and rust. Alluvial River Garnet is not exposed to chloride contamination like Alluvial Beach Garnets. Alluvial River Garnet’s unique characteristics improve production rates, reduce abrasive usage, and lower disposal and clean-up costs. Typical applications include blast rooms, blast yards, bridges, offshore platforms, oil refineries, pipelines, railcar shops, shipyards, storage tanks, and water towers.

LOW CHLORIDE LEVELS

Alluvial River Garnet is mined from a fresh water river bed. As a result, Alluvial River Garnet is not exposed to chloride contamination like Alluvial Beach Garnets. The extremely low chloride levels of Alluvial River Garnet reduces the chance of chloride contamination versus other Alluvial Beach Garnets available on the market.

RECYCLABILITY

The low friability of Alluvial River Garnet produces lower dust levels and allows it to be recycled up to five times. Recycling Alluvial River Garnet increases profitability by reducing abrasive consumption, shipping, clean-up, and disposal costs.

INCREASED PRODUCTION

Alluvial River Garnet’s sub-angular shape, hardness, and bulk density provides fast cutting ability, significantly increasing the amount of square feet per hour that can be blasted. This increase in production will lower your labor hours and expedite blasting.
