Established in 1992, Gero Diagnostics is a Closed Corporation owned by Robert Rettermayer and George Rettermayer. We specialize in cleaning methods, that are environmentally friendly, using quality raw materials that do not damage the surface, and without use of chemicals. Our services mainly include sand blasting, shot blasting, as well as bead blasting.
Abrasive blasting is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface, or remove surface contaminants. A pressurized fluid, typically air is used to propel the blasting material. Sandblasting can be used to refurbish buildings, cleaning boat hulls, as well as brick, stone, and concrete work. Sandblasting is used for cleaning industrial as well as commercial structures. When sandblasting wood signage it allows the wood grains to show and the growth rings to be raised, and is popular way to give a sign a traditional carved look.
Mobile dry abrasive blast systems are typically powered by a diesel air compressor. The air compressor provides a large volume of high pressure air to a single or multiple “blast pots”. Blast pots are pressurized, tank-like containers, filled with abrasive material, used to allow an adjustable amount of blasting grit into the main blasting line. The number of blast pots is dictated by the volume of air the compressor can provide. Fully equipped blast systems are often found mounted on semi-tractor trailers, offering high mobility and easy transport from site to site. Others are hopper-fed types making them lightweight and more mobile. In wet blasting, the abrasive is introduced into a pressurized stream of water or other liquid, creating a slurry. Wet blasting is often used in applications where the minimal dust generation is desired.
