Recover System Pressure Vessels  Dust Collection

Inefficient reclaim systems can increase cycle times, abrasive consumption while reducing dust collectorr performance, filter life and operator visibility. Wheelabrator offers a complete line of reclaim rebuild options for all existing airblast rooms.

 

The heart of an air blast operation is the pressure vessel. Wheelabrator supplies state of the art pressure vessels with options that fit each application. These include specific items such as hour meters, abrasive cut off switches, spider plates, and more. 

 

Wheelabrator dust collectors are designed to your specific needs. A properly sized and maintained dust collector is critical to operator safety and cost efficient operation. Wheelabrator will help you maximize your filter life, decrease abrasive consumption, improve operator visibility and hel you meet new OSHA regulations. 
     
Lighting ASAP System Short Stop
Lighting is probably the single most important feature of a blast room. Wheelabrator lighting systems offers 6 and bulb lighting solutions with the option to turn on or off as many bulbs as needed. Emergency lighting comes on over exits to light the way in the event of a power outage. OSHA required and a must for your operator’s safety.

The ASAP (As Soon As Possible) system is the perfect answer to operator safety. In  the event of a dropped hose, the ASAP will stop the abrasive flow in less than a second. Especially in confined spaces it is critical that the flow through the nozzle be halted. 

 

The short stop is the only electrical dead man control that shuts itself off in the event of a short in the dead man cord. This eliminates the possibility of an operator being left with a blast hose that cannot be shut off. 

 

 

     
 Door Limit Switch Safety Gear CO Monitor

Door limit switches are a key safety feature for keeping outside personnel safe. The switch provides an automatic stoppage of the blast pots so no one entering the air blast room is hurt. OSHA requires this for safety.

 

Wheelabrator provides a high quality blast hood that exceeds OSHA requirements. The hoods provide superior protection, reliability and comfort for operators. The light weight feature allows employees to work longer in turn increasing production.

CO monitors, monitor the operators breathing air and gives off an audible and visual alarm warning the operator of unsafe air. CO monitors are a life saving device that is mandatory on all air blast rooms by OSHA.
