We Provide Sand Blasting Services in the Bay Area

When you need sandblasting services in the Bay Area look no further. We possess the engineering expertise, mobile sandblasting equipment, and our staff is confined-space certified to tackle any project you might have.

In addition to our mobile sand blasting equipment we also have at our disposal portable plural component sprayer equipment to not only prepare your steel or concrete surfaces but completely reline or coat your water or chemical tanks including tractor trailer tanks.

No matter what surface you need sand or abrasive blasted we can help you determine the appropriate abrasive to use for the job. By carefully selecting your blast medium we are able to provide whatever surface profile is demanded for the project.

We have experience with stainless steel sandblasting service which requires additional expertise due to the hardness of stainless steel. Surface profile measurements are critical with stainless steel sandblasting services due to the high risk of poor adhesion from a bad anchor profile on the substrate surface, but we have the experience and knowledge needed to ensure a quality product. We perform a battery of tests using ASTM and NACE standards to test the profile of the blasted surface before a new stainless steel tank lining or coating is applied

Abrasives and Sand Blasting Bay Area

We provide scientifically engineered abrasive to match your situation. We take time to evaluate what should be removed and what needs to be kept. We evaluate the Mohr Hardness values of abrasives versus the substrate we are sandblasting. Abrasives we use come in various grits and sizes and include: brown fused aluminum oxide, white aluminum oxide, garnet, walnut, cob and more.

After working with our professional crew this is what Timothy G from Phillips 66 had to say:

“The crew you sent out were great and did an excellent job . It is always nice towork with a professional group that knows what to do and how to do it.”

Choosing Materials for Fabrication of Tanks, Water Tank Linings and Coatings

Water storage is an integral part of many industries and requires careful consideration to minimize risks and adhere to government standards. So, it’s not hard to understand why tank fabrication is so important.

Commercial Coatings and Linings Prevent Early Tank Degradation

Fluid storage tanks are a crucial part of any industry and are used to hold anything from water to organic waste. Unfortunately, these tanks are in a constant state of deterioration thanks to corrosion. Even “simple” materials such as water will naturally corrode a metal tank over time, which will lead to problems such as leaking tanks, collapsing tank walls, and cross-contamination if tanks are used for more than one purpose. Many of these problems are inevitable results of using any storage tank for a long period of time, but many of them can also be mitigated by commercial coatings and tank liners. You will still need to invest in a tank leak repair service, but the right coatings and liners can extend the life of your storage tanks greatly. Here are just a few things to consider when it comes to using commercial coatings in your storage tanks. Read more »

Fire Water Tank Sizing for Fire Suppression

An adequate public water supply necessary for fire suppression is not always available, and in such cases a firewater tank can be used to aid in the suppression of fires which break out in either a residential or commercial setting. The tank sizing for such a firewater tank is important, because if it cannot meet the needs of fire suppression, the fire will not be contained, and it is likely that one or more buildings will be severely damaged as a result. Commercial firewater tanks in the Bay Area, as in other sections of the country, are generally sized according to a specific calculation which ensures there is sufficient water and water pressure to do the job.
