Blasting Ally

I've got an Aluminum triaxle tipper that we use for grain carting mainly but also for fertilizer occaisonly. I've noticed the bare ally is starting to pit from the fertilizer. Thinking of blasting it then painting with 2 pack. Not sure if I should blast with garnet or something else. Opinions welcome 😁

I had some single get wet up around the hoist well in mine and pitted really badly. I ended up sanding it with wet dry paper on an orbital sander and running water and it came up like original. Is it the inside or outside your looking to do? Mine had 2pak on the inside when I bought it but it didn't last long

Really, didnt last long? Must have been a questionable job of painting. Ive got 2 pack on a few items and its almost like steel for hardness and durability. And yes it is the inside with a problem from fert.

Can you use Soda through a standard Panblast pot? Or do you need special equipment?

It was meant to be some sort of extra slippery Teflon based paint, after about 10000t through the trailer it was pretty much gone from the floor and the bottom half of the walls. I'd suspect it hadn't been prepped very well before painting.
I've got a couple of fert silos with painted cones and roofs that still don't have a speck of rust on them after 10 years so it definitely works if you can get the paint to stay on

You need for soda a bit different setup, walnut is ok thru a normal sandblaster compressed bottom feed. Air must be very dry for soda.
