We supply a range of recycled industrial blast media suitable for blasting some metal alloys and cleaning steel. We also supply finer sandblasting sand for lettering and cleaning headstone.

Fahy Analytical prides itself as being the only supplier of recycled Abrasive Sand in Ireland. As an angular, durable blasting abrasive, aluminum oxide can be recycled many times. We have developed the technology to recycle sandblasting material by separating used finer media from un-broken virgin material to provide an environmentally friendly and cost effective product.

Fahy Analytical Ltd., supply and deliver Aluminium Oxide in a range of grades. It is the most widely used abrasive grain in sand blast finishing and surface preparation because of its cost, longevity and hardness. Harder than other commonly used blasting materials, aluminum oxide grit powder penetrates and cuts even the hardest metals.

Some of the many diverse applications include the use of the sand for the cleaning and lettering of headstones. The sand is an Aluminium Oxide (rather than silica) based material which can be supplied, moisture free with low clogging tendency in high humidity condition.

The sand can be delivered in a number of grit sizes depending on the application. Applications include the cleaning of engine heads, valves, pistons and turbine blades in the aircraft industry. Another application is its use in applying lettering on monuments and marker inscriptions. It is also commonly used for matt finishing, as well as cleaning and preparing parts for metalizing, plating and welding. Aluminum oxide abrasive grain is the best choice for an abrasive sand blasting.
