Garnet is a natural mineral collected from the alluvial soil sources such as river or beach deposits and gathered in a sustainable manner or mined from rock deposits.
It is crushed in mills and then purified by wind blowing, magnetic separation, sieving and, if required, washing.
Due to its sharp edges, high specific gravity and exceptional hardness, garnet is widely applied in the following fields:
In the process of surface preparation, Garnet is blasted on to the surface of the steel with the use of high pressure compressed air. This process creates a profile, which in turn helps in extending the life of the coating. Garnet is the prescribed abrasive for oil companies, petrochemical tank works, offshore platforms, pipelines, heavy equipment repair, industrial parts cleaning and ship building companies.
Water Jet Cutting:
It is one of the latest and fast growing cutting technologies employed by steel companies to cut metals accurately and precisely. Owing to its faster productivity, non-heat generating advantages and lower cost, it is popular in the USA and Europe. Garnet is the only abrasive that can be used in waterjet cutting machines, widely used in cutting of marble, granite, artificial stones, concrete, aluminum, titanium, high strength steel and steel bridge decking, automotive glass, textiles, corrugated box board, plastic laminates, aerospace composites, etc.,
Because of its unique grain structure, it is also used as a filtering media in water treatment facilities.
