Strengthened by innovative advancements and a team of application experts, the lab utilizes new technology to enhance your productivity. The lab assists in enhancing performance characteristics of a variety of blast wheels and applications. These technological gains are applied to both our new equipment solutions and equipment modernization programs. 

To lead the way with new developments and technology, Wheelabrator completes trial runs of equipment and examines all blast processes in our lab. This specialized center drives the research to ensure blast repeatability in realistic work settings and to deliver the highest quality in surface preparation results.

To validate engineered designs, rigorous demo tests are conducted in the lab to replicate wheel positions to ensure they effectively perform the way the customer wants or needs. This makes our lab a valuable resource for customers, giving them a practical means to evaluate surface preparation solutions.
