Pipe shot blasters are designed to process tubes, pipes, round bars, round sections, round profiles, gas steel bottles, and other cylinder-shape parts external surface in continuous flow production.
They can be used to descale, remove dust, remove paint, deburr, or for general surface preparation prior welding, cutting, machining, coating, and/or burning operation.
Process can be customized to the customer’s requirements. Increasing production yield simply means adding more blast wheels, changing the position or horsepower of the blast wheels and increasing the traveling speed of the conveyor.
Parts travel on “bow tie” rollers or on a conveyor with skew rollers which enable parts to rotate on themselves as they travel on the conveyor.
As they travel through the blasting chamber, parts are exposed to the abrasive propelled by the ir sm@rt multi-option blast wheels ranging from 5.5 to 30 kW, providing efficient shot blasting and quick results.
After use, residual abrasive media falls down the bottom of the blasting chamber, where it is conveyed by screw conveyors and a bucket elevator to an automatic media cleaner.
The abrasive reclaimer provides continuous handling and recycling of abrasive media based on particles size in order to maintain optimal and consistent quality blasting.
For heavily regulated applications, a magnetic and/or vibratory particle separator can be added to precisely sort the abrasive based on their size and density.
All shot blasters are equipped with PLC, display, timer, automatic or manual mode, automatic start-up of the blast wheels, working-hours counter, and other basic features.
Blast wheels and blasting chamber inner walls are protected by wear-resistant shields made from manganese steel liners for extremely long service life.
The blasting chamber has rubber or Lexan curtains which ensures abrasive media is kept inside. Rotating brush and high-pressure blow nozzles clean parts before they exit the blasting chamber.
Blast wheels can be equipped with a frequency drive and ir sm@rt valve to precisely control the flow of media for optimal results.
