  • Descaling of round, square, hexagonal or flat wire and bars
  • Single-strand Machines or Multi-strand machines are available

High Sustainability

With FL blast machines, wire, bar or sections with an envelope circle range of 5 to 130 mm diameter can be descaled by longitudinal blasting. Blast machines of the FL series are universal and efficient.

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

Reduced Production Costs

The surfaces of commercially available wire and bar of different shapes and cross sections (round, square, hexagonal or flat bars) can be uniformly descaled by shot blasting. Guide elements allow for smooth passage of the wire and bar through the blast zone.

The descaling speed is generally set to suit the type of scale, the material being processed and the degree of surface cleanliness desired.

The machines are chosen according to the production program and the descaling speed: the best prerequisites for efficient concepts and customer specific solutions. Additional equipment such as reels, straightening units and driving devices, loading and unloading systems ensure a high degree of efficiency. Specific features are included to ensure that energy and abrasive are used to maximum effect. FL blast machines have proved themselves in hundreds of application and in many cases operate around the clock.

The Machine Types for Wire and Bar Descaling

For Wire Descaling
The FL3, FL4 and FL6 machines are equipped with 3, 4 or 6 blast wheels and abrasive stream guide plates. Within seconds these guide plates can be adjusted to suit the cross section of the material being processed. This ensures maximum energy utilisation and the highest possible effectiveness of the abrasive. The guide plate system allows for smooth introduction and passage of smaller diameter wire.

For Bar Descaling
Machines of this series with 4 or 6 blast wheels are especially designed for use in modern drawing lines with high drawing speeds. The guide and pressure rollers allow for smooth passage of the bars. Each transport roller is driven individually and is vertically adjustable.

Safe and Reliable Operation

All components exposed to wear are made of high-quality wear-resistant material. Functional components, such as blast wheels, separators, bucket elevators and feed elements are of standard industry-proven design. Multiple guide elements ensure controlled passage of the products through the blast zone and a safe and continuous operational sequence. By means of driving and pre-straightening units efficient descaling of the front and rear ends is provided.

Universal Wheel

The blast wheel is the heart of the blasting machine, as the choice of blast wheel determines the power output and the economics. 

This machine is fitted with U70x380 Universal (direct drive) shot blast wheels as standard. The Wheels are highly flexible, compact and have rotation in both directions. They provide perfect blast cleaning results and highly convenient servicing features.

The U Blast Wheels are high capacity blast wheels with maximum energy efficiency. Their rugged design means that maintenance is easy, and the special and highly wear resistant cast alloy liners ensure minimum wear and maximum service life of the blast wheel.
