Low carbon round steel shot

Low carbon round steel shot The Steel shots have a carbon content of 0.12 – 0.17% by weight, It has a bainite structure and therefore it possesses optimum properties in terms of toughness and hardness. The low percentage of carbon ads 30% higher durability of our steel shot than the high carbon steel shots (Ervin test - K100 durability). The hardness of the grains is defined by the carbon level.
In the production process of our low-carbon steel shot granulations is followed by thermal process of drying, which has a beneficial tempering effect. The grain is free from cracks. Quality control is permanent by keeping samples of every delivering of steel shots for further laboratory examination.
The desired operating mixture (the right balance between cleaning performance and good coverage) can be achieved by combining several different grain size ranges.
C = approx. 0,10 - 0,17 %
Si = approx. 0,10 - 0,25 %
Mn = approx. 1,00%
P = max. 0,035%
S = max. 0,035%
DURABILITY: ERVIN TEST K100 = 3000 - 3500 cycles
HARDNESS: HRc = 40 - 45; HV = 400 - 480
SPECIFIC WEIGHT: cca 7,5 kg/dm3
FILLING WEIGHT: cca 4,4 kg/dm3
Aplication: Sending of casts(grey cast, steel cast, tempered cast, nonferrous casts); Degreasing, removal of remains of castings, removal of paints and varnishes (beams, half products, steel constractions, sheet metal, profiles, tubes, railway tracks, waggon holders); Removal of enamel from cast parts; Polishing (tool, big parts, sheets of alloyed steel); Surface tempering (flat and spiral springs of shafts, screws, elements for the connection of machine parts)
