Burnley Fountain Memorial Restored

Sandblasting in Lancashire

We used a very fine Iron Silicate blasting media for the works. The sandblasting machine had the pressure at 50psi to insure the sandblasting did not damage the original Cast Iron. The fountain had been painted over many times and had a high amount of corosion.

We used one of our smallest sandblasting pots for this, it is capiable of removing rust without damaging the original surface.

Sandblasting Metalwork
Our Metal Restoration Specialists had just also to repair the broken areas of cast iron to the fountain. Moulds were taken of the original copied from area not damaged., but due to budget constranints the pieces had to be cast in fibreglass. The cobbles under the fountain were also replaced and jointsed with tar. We used a very fine media for the Sand Blasting of this fountain. This was choosen so that we did not damage or erode any of the original metalwork. We do not tend to use Sandblasting for stone building in Burnley, our other Farrow Sandblasting machine produces less mess.
