Prepared For Operations

Military Solutions

The military industry relies on Wheelabrator’s surface preparation technologies for aerospace, naval and ground transport, and for treating smaller components such as ammunition.

Cleaning and Preparing Ground Transport Returning from Operations

When armed personnel carriers return from the field, they are rusty, dirty, scratched and the coating is chipped. In short, they are a mess.

After blasting in a hanger-type blast machine (also commonly known as monorail or overhead rail blast machines), the tanks reappear in immaculate condition and paint-free, ready for a new paint coating, and ready to be prepared to return to the action.

Tank Hull Cleaning

Watch the Discovery Channel's Anniston Army base video to see how a Wheelabrator machine cleans these huge vehicle sections.

Surface Preparation and Treatment for Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) of Air and Naval Fleet

Paint removal and cleaning of airforce and naval fleet can be achieved manually by closed circuit blast machines, or if sections are separated, dedicated blastrooms can be used incorporating manual or automated blasting processes.

Other typical applications include:
  • Paint removal from aircraft and ships by closed circuit blast machines 

  • Ship segment surface preparation (cleaning) in blastrooms 

  • Ship segment corrosion protection in paint rooms 

  • Repainting and coating solutions

  • Ammunition and Small Components can be treated in Vibratory Finishing machines
