Garnet Advantages

1. Lower contaminants :

Super garnet is preferred worldwide owing to its 99% purity in terms of mineralogical content. Silica and ilmenite are the two other commonly found contaminants in the garnet. Higher % of free silica can cause silicosis hazard and also have impact on the performance of the blasting or cutting operation. This will also result in higher consumption. That is exactly why we give utmost importance to make sure our customers get the best value for their money by strictly adhering to 99% purity levels.

 

2. Higher Hardness and Lower Breakability

Owing to the rounded curved points, Super Garnet does not break and retains faster cutting efficiency. This almandine variety of garnet is hardest in nature and creates a much better profile when used

3. Lower salinity

Salinity in the grains defiles the coating at the time of surface preparation and thereby the coating becomes failure due to rust formation. Low salinity achieved due to fresh water wash is an added advantage of our product. We are the only company to have a dedicated fresh water washing facility among all the other garnet producers in the world.

4. Scientifically arrived grades and sizes :

Usage of sophisticated equipments like Rotex, Minox helps maintain the grades and sizes of Super Garnet. These specialised screening equipments produce a narrow size range which maximises productivity and lowers abrasive consumption. Our R&D department works closely with our distributors and end users to constantly update the size specifications.

5. Moisture free

Moisture is a sworn enemy affecting free flowing especially in cold countries. We take great care in our process to pack the material strictly at ambient temperature and low humidity levels ensuring no free moisture is locked up inside the bag. Our dryers and coolers installed in the plants are also fine tuned to match our customer’s moisture requirements.

6. Recyclability :

Reusing our Super Garnet several times ensures less consumption and eventually covers more area per M.Tonne. This is made possible by Super Garnet’s higher hardness.

7. Low dust levels

Dust in the abrasive can cloud the vision of the blaster and untidy the operational environment. Especially when blasting steel structures and bridges in a city, dust is not something you need in your garnet. Even in water jet cutting, dust produces muddy water resulting in choking of water recycling system. Our dedicated washing facility ensures our product is absolutely dust free. Thus, guaranteeing dust free product is the ultimate aim of VVM as per the SSPC and ISO standards.

8. Automated packing facility

It is an appealing modus operandi and results in visually appealing and even shaped bags which is easy to stack and handle with minimal collapses and damages.
