Engine Carbon Cleaning with Walnut Shells – Walnut Blasting
Eden Products Ltd are the leading UK supplier of Walnut Shell Granules for use on a range of Shot Blast Equipment.
Direct injected cars have one major drawback over port-injected engines, which is that carbon deposits can build up over time, requiring them to be removed at regular intervals throughout the lifespan of the engine. The most effective and common method to do this is the use of Walnut Shells in a process commonly known as Walnut Blasting. Walnut blasting is when crushed and graded walnut shells are blown into the car’s engine (intake valve) with an air compressor. It works like a sand blaster removing the carbon deposits from the surface being blasted. Walnut blasting is recognised by most mechanics as one of the safest and most efficient methods of removing carbon deposits from your car’s intake manifold and intake valves. Almost all direct-injected engines will require this de-carbonisation process completed at regular intervals during the lifespan of the car’s engine.
Walnuts are pre-ground, cleaned, and the membrane and fat are removed from the shell before they go for further processing. They are specifically ground on hammer and roller mills to get the correct size and surface of the granule. Walnut Shells are ground to various sizes (coarse, Medium and fine) for the use in a variety of applications.
