Wire, Bar and Billet Descaling

Wheelabrator’s Wire and Bar descaling machines are renowned for their reliability and multi-shift capabilities. The process of mechanical descaling can be considered as an “environmentally responsible” non-polluting alternative to chemical descaling.

Wire, bar, tubes and profiles can be blast cleaned in a single or multistrand method. Wheelabrator offers the solutions to descale wire coils with the following machines: 

  • Single strand machines
  • Multi strand machines
  • Wire coil machines

Designed as 3, 4 or 6 wheel machines, Single- or Multistrand longitudinal blast machines not only meet different capacity requirements, but can be optimally adapted to changing product runs. These shot blast machines are easy to integrate into modern drawing lines operating at speeds of up to 240m/min or can be used as stand-alone machines for autonomous finishing.  

Wheelabrator offers coil blasting solutions to treat wire in coils. The number and position of wheels is expressly designed for this difficult application to achieve maximum coverage. 

Wheelabrator Billet Descaling Machines operate on the single-strand longitudinal blast cleaning principle and are usually arranged ahead of crack detection equipment. Integration in fully mechanized finishing lines results in a continuous material flow however, Wheelabrator billet descaling machines can also be used independently with loading and unloading devices and storage tracks. The number of wheels in operation depends on the production needs. The descaling degree is adapted to the surface quality required by the flaw detection method.
