SATURN blast wheel

Significantly increase productivity and efficiency by reducing cycle times and energy usage

The SATURN HD blast wheel has been designed using the latest technology to provide ease of maintenance and high performance under the toughest conditions. 
The flexibility ensures that it is adaptable for all Wheelabrator and non Wheelabrator wheel blast equipment.

The SATURN HD wheel is available in a wide range of sizes and power to save you money by:

  • Increasing productivity
  • Reducing cycle times
  • Improving efficiency
  • Controlling abrasive
  • Reducing maintenance times
  • Decrease energy usage

Increase productivity and efficiency

  • New design control cage channel increases abrasive flow by up to 20%
  • Impellor has a 30% larger throat allowing more abrasive to be thrown whilst using less power
  • Higher abrasive velocities reduce cycle time
  • Long life convex blades: Achieve a better distribution of abrasive on large or batched workpieces and expand the hot spot to reduce the concentrated pattern impacting the cabinet between workpieces
  • Lightweight parts utilize less energy

Reduce maintenance time and costs

  • Higher abrasive velocities allow you to use a smaller sized abrasive to significantly reduce wear
  • Precise balancing and machining processes produce extremely long life wear parts      
  • Vibration and abrasive consumption are reduced by the exacting impelor casting process, which is concentric on 3 axes
  • Motor failures caused by abrasive intrusion are eliminated by effective, integrated, frictionless hub seal
  • Low maintenance times are achieved due to the 10 minute replacement
  • Tune Up Kit – even by inexperienced technicians
  • Time-consuming full removal of the cap nut and washer is unnecessary due to hinged lid and safety swing nuts
  • Shot locking is greatly reduced thanks to the integrated Acme threads

Direct drive motor

Both the fabricated and cast housing SATURN HD units use a direct coupled motor to deliver the following benefits:

  • Increased drive motor efficiencies by up to 20% 
  • Lower wheel cost 
  • Increased abrasive flow rates 
  • Lower installation cost 
  • Space requirement reduced by half compared to conventional blast wheel units

Examples of machines working with SATURN HD

  • Tumblast equipment
  • Table machines
  • Hanger Type machines
  • Horizontal Belt machines
  • Plate machines
  • Wire Mesh Belt machines
