Garnet

 

Known for its natural hardness, durability and abrasive characteristics, Garnet is composed of natural Almandite garnet grains that meet all Occupational Health and Safety requirements, as well as being environmentally inert.

Garnet provides a perfect symbiosis of grain size, density and hardness/durability ensuring optimum abrasive efficiency in terms of lowest abrasive consumption and highest production rates at safe environmental and health conditions.

Low Dusting
Blast cleaning using Garnet provides significantly lower dust emissions due to its inherent material toughness and rapid settling as a result of high specific gravity. This ensures minimum disruption and danger to adjoining operations and improved operator visibility and safety.

High Productivity
Very fast cutting is achieved with speed, large number and shape of grains impacting on the surface. The acceleration and speed of a grain in an air stream is a function of the inertia and hence the size of the grain. Smaller grains accelerate much more readily and impart higher impact energy to surfaces resulting in a superior cleaning rate - usually twice the m2/hr of conventional abrasives.

Water Filtration:
Coarser grains of Garnet like Grade 'A+ & Grade 'A' is used in a variety of filtration applications which include Industrial Waste Water treatment and commercial water filtration. Garnet is possibly the most cost effective alternative for water filtration beds as it resets the filter bed more rapidly after the bed is back-flushed. Moreover, it is also effective for the elimination of heavy minerals. Furthermore it has the benefit of being chemically inert, recycle in resulting in longer production to Water treatment medium.

The brand is acknowledged for its high specific gravity, durability and consistent grading, which is very essential for water treatment and filtration.

Sand Blasting
Fine grains of Garnet like Grade 'B' & Grade 'C' is recommended for blast cleaning applications. Supreme Garnet is a natural Almandine known for its natural hardness, resilience and lends itself to high performance during blasting. Almandine Garnet grains are the most adaptable natural blasting and cutting mediums offered in the international market today. Its intrinsic physical and chemical uniformity ensures superior performance. Garnet is steadily superseding other blasting media because it is environment friendly and reusable.

The brand performs superlatively for surface preparation in the following applications:

  • Oil & Petroleum industry maintenance, refineries, oil wells etc.

  • Shipbuilding, repair yards, shipyards for blasting.

  • Bridges, rail tanks, new buildings.

  • Denim Blasting. It is utilized for stone washing of denim fabrics, offering only the fading of dye without damaging the cloth or stitching

 

Water Jet Cutting:
Micro grains of Garnet like Grade #80 / # 120 are perfectly suitable for the Waterjet cutting Media in the Industrial purpose. Uniformity in grain size & shape give excellent performance for the users, Supreme Garnet is perfectly suitable for the applications given below.
