  1. Blast your way to Clean with our Dry Ice Machines

    What’s the newest addition to the Sutton Garten family? The fleet of blasting machines we are now introducing to our rental department.

    Specifically, we have added a ColdJet blasting machine, the SFDI Select 60. Available for daily, weekly, or monthly rentals, our five units are used primarily for food, packaging, mold, water remediation, and foundry cleaning applications. Instead of using water, soda, or sand for the blasting, this particular machine uses dry ice. By doing so, it leaves behind no secondary waste, as it dissolves into a gas. Water, soda, and sand, on the other hand, leave material waste behind.

    Dry Ice Blasting MachineOne reason we are excited to introduce this machine is because of the various features it entails. Not only can this machine clean from as low as 50 cfm, which helps to eliminate compressed air and reduces noise levels, but it also has blast pressures ranging from 65 to 250 PSI. Additionally, it has a feed rate of 0 to 6 lbs. per minute.

    The SFDI Select 60 joins our fleet of other ColdJet blasting machines, including the Aero 30, Aero 40, and Aero 80. How do we use these machines ourselves? Not only do we use these machines for contract cleaning, but we also make and supply the dry ice along with the machine. Interested in renting one of our dry ice machines?

  2. The Whole Package for 90 Years

    What makes us here at Sutton-Garten unique and why do we refer to ourselves as a “whole package?” The answer could be a wide range of things, from our complete line of welding equipment to our rental line to our long history. Let’s start at the beginning.

    Ninety years ago, in 1918, the welding side of Sutton-Garten first opened, under the care of four men. The company leadership then solely came under William Garten and Charles Sutton, and the business took off (and yes, we are still a family-owned company today, currently operating with the third and fourth generations!). We have resided in multiple locations over the years, and we have been in our current building since the 1980s (we even expanded in the early 2000’s and doubled the size of our warehouse).

    Although welding has always been the main focal point of our company,—we are one of the oldest operating businesses in the welding industry—we have expanded in order to keep up with the changing industry and our customers’ demands. At the time of the Great Depression, the welding side of the company took a hit, so we opened our repair shop in order to maintain our business. Now, we have a complete repair and rental shop that supports all of the equipment we sell. Additionally, around 5 years ago, we added the carbon dioxide and dry ice department, which has seen rapid expansion since its introduction. So why do we call ourselves the whole package? Because we have a full cycle of services: we sell welding equipment, train staffs on how to weld and how to become certified, we repair equipment, and we provide rental equipment. Anything your equipment may need in its life cycle, we can offer.
