Washington Mills suggested a high quality and more consistent and tightly graded aluminum oxide to improve the turbine re-finishing operation. The elimination of the two blended materials and the reduction in blasting time allowed the turbine manufacturer to produce more parts faster and lower the cost per part. The switch from grit blasting media to aluminum oxide produced tangible cost savings that lowered the customer’s cost of manufacturing. A more productive grit blasting material such as Niagara Blast® saved the company money by eliminating the need for large quantities of blended garnet and steel. It moved the manufacturing focus away from trouble shooting problems to producing excellent parts in an efficient and timely manner.
