Blast Unit #1

Aerospace Component Shot Blasting


Blast Unit #1 measures 54 ft (16.46 m) in length (extendedable to 70 ft (21.34 m)), 22 ft (6.70 m) wide and 20 ft (6.10 m) high - giving us the ability to grit blast extremely large tanks, oil and gas industry components, large pressure vessels and structural components. The blast booth is equipped with a blast media recovery system and a wet scrubber for dust collection.

Located immediately beside our largest paint booth, the process of blasting and coating large components is streamlined by creating a minimum of product handling - something especially important with sensitive or heavy components.
Blast Unit #2

Blasting Facility



Blast Unit #2 is the largest blasting area at Aberfoyle. It measures 40 ft (12.2 m) wide by 80 ft (25 m) long. This size allows us to manually blast very large components. Typically, items such as stainless steel parts are run through this booth for specialized surface preparation that requires alternate blast media.

Glass bead and aluminum oxide shot are both used in this booth, depending on the product being blasted. Stainless steel products are especially well-suited to blasting with glass bead media, as this gives the surfaces a high-quality finish.
Paint Booth #1

Paint Booth #1



Aberfoyle's largest paint booth, is 54 ft (16.45 m) in length (but can be extended to 74 ft (21.33 m) if needed), by 24 ft (7.32 m) wide by 20 ft (6.10 m) high, giving us exceptional capacity for painting and coating extremely large products.

We are able to apply a versatile range of coatings such as: Alkyd Enamels and Primers, Epoxy High-Build, Inorganic Zinc, Plural Component, High-Heat Coatings and Tank Linings

This range of capabilities allows us to work with the Petrochemical, Hydroelectric, Construction and other heavy machinery industries to address the myriad of coating needs to protect components under a broad range of conditions. We are recommended applicators by our coating suppliers.
Paint Booth #2

Paint Booth #2



Paint Booth #2 is our smaller paint booth with measurements of 35 ft (10.67 m) long (but it can be extended to 50 ft (15.24 m) if needed), by 13 ft (3.96 m) wide by 13.5 ft (4.12 m) high. It is designed for a multitude of small to medium-sized components. Parts are sprayed or coated by hand, ensuring high-accuracy finishing by our highly-skilled operators.

We have the flexibility to apply the following types of coatings: Alkyd Enamels and Primers, Epoxy High-Build, Inorganic Zinc, Plural Component, High-Heat Coatings and Tank Linings.

Our experience has earned us the designation of recommended applicators by our coating suppliers.
