WHEEL BLAST EQUIPMENT

This is a type of abrasive blasting machinery that uses a wheel or turbine to propel abrasive media at high velocity against a workpiece. This process is commonly used for cleaning, descaling, deburring, and preparing surfaces in various industries, including manufacturing, foundry, automotive, and construction.

Here are some key components and features of wheel blast equipment:

Blast Wheel or Turbine: The heart of the wheel blast equipment is the blast wheel or turbine. It consists of a wheel with blades or vanes attached to it. The wheel is rotated at high speeds, and abrasive media (such as steel shot, steel grit, or other materials) is thrown out by centrifugal force.

Abrasive Media Supply System: Wheel blast equipment requires a steady supply of abrasive media. This can be delivered through a hopper, where the abrasive is stored and fed into the system as needed.

Cabinet or Blast Room: The workpiece is typically placed inside an enclosed cabinet or blast room to contain the abrasive blasting process. This enclosure prevents the escape of abrasive media, ensures operator safety, and allows for dust and debris containment.

Dust Collection System: To control airborne dust and maintain a clean working environment, wheel blast equipment is often equipped with a dust collection system. This system captures and filters out dust generated during the blasting process.

Recovery System: In many wheel blast systems, there is a recovery system to collect and recycle abrasive media. This helps reduce waste and lower operational costs by reusing the abrasive particles.

Workpiece Handling System: Wheel blast equipment may include a system for automatically or manually conveying workpieces into and out of the blast area. This could involve conveyors, turntables, or other material handling mechanisms.

Control Panel: A control panel allows operators to adjust and monitor various parameters of the blasting process, such as wheel speed, abrasive flow, and other settings.

Lining and Wear Protection: The interior of the blast cabinet or room is often lined with wear-resistant materials to withstand the abrasive impact over time. Additionally, replaceable liners are used to protect key components from wear.

Wheel blast equipment is known for its efficiency and ability to handle large volumes of workpieces. It is suitable for a variety of applications, including the removal of rust, scale, paint, and other contaminants from metal surfaces. The specific design and features of wheel blast equipment can vary depending on the application and the type of workpieces being processed.
