24 SURFACE PREP 2018 COATINGSPROMAG.COM environment, according to the company. RBW Enterprises, Inc. offers a machine that can be used in the field or at a plant called the FasterBlaster, which, according to the company, is a portable shot blasting machine that can prep pipes, tanks, and wind dowers, for example. For smaller projects or jobs where access may be an issue, hand tools can be used in lieu of larger blasting equip- ment to create the proper profile. Companies such as Aurand Manufacturing have cutter bundles and wire brushes for lighter-scale applications. Montipower and MONTI Tools also offer hand tools for surface prep. Induction heating tools, available from companies such as BlastOne, can also be used over thick finishes in localized areas as a blasting alternative. ese induction heating tools work by generating enough heat to fracture the bonds between the coating and the metal surface. Measuring Up With the anchor profile finally established, contractors should take extra care to precisely measure the profile prior to coating application to ensure that it meets specifications. A profile that is too low could reduce adhesion for the new coating system, while an excessively high profile could lead to insufficient coverage and possibly premature corrosion.
