Wheelabrator offers standard suction and pressure fed airblast cabinets. In the standard hand blast cabinet, the nozzle is operated manually through armholes. For workpiece handling, various options can be integrated, e.g. turntables, rotating barrels, long components, etc.
All dry and free running abrasives can be used in the machines.
In the wet blasting process a water-abrasive mixture is used. The water washes contaminants like grease and oil away. In the dry blasting process, these contaminants could cause coagulation of the abrasive and lead to machine failure. Therefore, wet blasting is often used for refurbishing parts such as motor and compressor parts. As with the dry blasting cabinets, similar workpiece handling options can be integrated.
The Wheelabrator range of machines offer advanced features to ensure efficient operation and maximum operator comfort. Constructed in stainless steel, the cabinets offer advanced features to ensure maximum cleaning effect with good visibility and ease of use.
Pressure Fed Air Blasting
The pressure fed air blast cabinets from Wheelabrator have been designed specifically for production applications where a high work output is required, combined with optimum abrasive quality.
Suction Fed Air Blasting
Suction fed air blast cabinets have been designed specifically for production applications where a less aggressive surface treatment is required. Suction fed blasting has a lower performance than pressure fed blasting, but uses significantly less compressed air.
The Wet Blast process provides component cleaning, degreasing and finishing in one operation. Compared with dry blasting it is less aggressive, does not generate dust, can process components such as titanium without risk of explosion, reduces media consumption and leaves a cleaner, brighter surface finish.
