Sandblasting & Shot Blasting Services for Steel Pipe & Tube

To counter oxidation, steel manufacturers coat steel with an oily lacquer. While this slows the oxidation process, it can make it challenging to work with the lacquered steel. Fortunately, there are ways to remove lacquer coating and rust from metal. One way is through Totten Tubes’ sandblasting services.

While Totten Tubes does not conduct in-house sandblasting, we are a one-stop shop for all your steel pipe and tube. Rather than requiring you to ship your steel tube to a sandblaster and gather it yourself, we take care of all sandblasting deliveries and logistics. Our capabilities include 20’x20’x45’ sandblasting rooms with temperature and humidity control to prevent oxidation.

Take the worry out of your steel sandblasting and shot blasting services by leaving it to the experts at Totten Tubes.

Sandblasting & Shot Blasting for Steel Pipe and Tube

Sandblasting is a process where sand is blasted at steel or metal to remove rust, paint, or oil on the steel. Shot blasting is a similar service used to clean steel.

Sandblasting and shot blasting are quick, cost-effective, and prepare steel surfaces for further processing. After sandblasting or shot blasting, paint adheres better to the steel, galvanizing is even stronger, and fabrication becomes much, much simpler. Sandblasting provides new steel with a mildly abrasive cleaning, so you are left with a smooth surface free of imperfections.
