Roller Conveyor Machines
Roller Conveyor Blast Machines
Wheelabrator offers a range of roller conveyors from small simple machines to construction blasters, and heavy duty machines and complete preservation lines. Wheelabrator’s extensive experience in this field caters for all component sizes as well as customer specific solutions. Working speeds from 0.5 m/min for a small roller conveyor machine to 200m/min for a heavy skew roll machine are achievable. For the specific treatment of large quantities of scale to chip separation systems for structural steel companies, Wheelabrator has a complete range.
The S Type Roller Conveyor is a very heavy duty roller conveyor, designed for steel mill and ship building applications. The machine is specially designed for cleaning steel/stainless steel plates. The thickness of the plates to be treated ranges from 6 to 300 mm and the weight per linear meter can easily go up to 5 tonnes. The modular roller conveyor design ensures that Wheelabrator can easily adjust the conveyor according to customer needs.
Vertical roller conveyor shot blast machines are an excellent alternative to “G” and “HD” roller conveyors for companies that are unable to create deep foundation pits. The slim design of these machines means they usually only need a small pit for the bucket elevator, the remaining elements are above ± 0.
In addition to this advantage, the vertical machines have the same angled arrangement of the blast wheels for blasting plates as the very heavy “S” type. This means the same distance from the blast wheels on both sides which achieves a fast and uniform blast result. As gravity helps to avoid the build up of abrasive, 100% of the blast energy is used for cleaning the plates. This also means that no brush/blow process is required.
In summary: vertical machines are pit saving, space saving, energy saving and therefore cost saving.
If vertical handling of the plates is problematic, the vertical machines can be equipped with tilting tables that swivel the plates from horizontal to an 80° inclined position at the in-feed and then rotate back to horizontal at the out-feed.
Vertical machines are available for plates of 3m and 4m width and for plate thickness from 6 – 300mm.
Skew Roll Machines, also known as inclined v-shape rollers or diabolo machines, are designed to clean gas bottle, pipe or any other long and round material. The V shaped conveyor not only keeps round parts in place but also rotates them whilst conveying them through the blasting chamber.
