Packaging and Freight Info:

  • Packaging:  Bulk (loose), 2 ton supersacks, or 75 lb bags.
  • Sold by the flatbed only. 22-24 net tons per load.
  • Priced per net ton, or per 2,000lbs.
  • Shipped via flatbed only.
  • You must have a forklift at the end destination to unload the flatbed.

Reclaiming Copper Slag Tips: 

  • To increase the number of uses, turn down the psi until you cannot see the material come out of the nozzle. If you can see it, it will not cut well, as you have too much in your air stream.  Start with a psi of 80 and adjust it upwards from there. A higher psi will not equal a faster or better cutting rate.
  • Try adding 15% new media back into the mix as you blast reclaimed material.
  • Can also be mixed in with steel shot and grit.
  • Dense enough to be used in a Cyclone blasting machine.
  • When blasting pipelines, try blasting new media on the inside first, then the reclaimed material on the exterior second.  In this manner your first pass will be as a 1230, and the second as a 2050. 
  • To get at least three passes:  Start with a 1230, turn down the psi, and consider adding 15% new into your mix.  You can often obtain 5 passes if you do this.
  • 32% iron:  It will be attracted to a magnet and is dense enough to be reclaimed.
