Steel shot comes in a variety of sizes and levels of hardness. The bulk density is very high and must be taken into consideration with how that might affect your blasting equipment. Appropriate equipment needs to be implemented in order to properly use steel blasting media.
Processes using steel shot must be able to tolerate a level of ferrous residue on the workpiece. When steel breaks down, it will leave ferrous contamination on the parts being blasted. Because of its durability and low-attrition rate, steel shot is a popular choice in wheel blast equipment and properly outfitted blast rooms.
