Steel Media for Vibratory Finishing

Steel is a non-consumable media used in increased working pressure. This makes steel the ideal media for a variety of finishes. Steel media produces a burr-free, bright, smooth surface during the vibratory deburring process.

Vibratory tumbling machines have longer cycle lives and greater resistance to action, a beneficial by-product of the vibratory, deburring and metal finishing process.

DURAMEDIA® Stainless Steel is recommended when complete freedom from rust is essential. The most commonly used chemistry is 304ss.

Typical Chemistry 1008 1013 1018 1022 304ss
Carbon 0.10 max 0.11-0.16 0.15-0.20 0.18-0.23 0.03 max
Manganese 0.030-0.50 0.50-0.80 0.60-0.90 0.70-1.00 2.00 max
Sulfur 0.050 max 0.050 max 0.050 max 0.050 max 0.030
Phosphorous 0.030 max 0.030 max 0.030 max 0.030 max 0.045 max

Dramatically cut finishing times by using more acidic compounds during the deburring process.

You can eliminating or reducing compounds used during the deburring process by leveraging stainless steel’s inherent ability to resist corrosion.

Reduce maintenance, storage and handling costs compared to carbon steel media.

Stainless steel vibratory media helps eliminate contamination from chemical interactions (i.e, iron impregnation) that take place during some finishing processes. Especially important to manufacturers of medical equipment, surgical tools, food processing equipment and similar materials.
