Alloy Wheel polishing has been significantly improved by optimising both the processing times and final results. These improvements have been achieved by mounting two motors on the process bowl, providing a stronger and uniform circulation of the grinding and polishing media.

Conventional machines have only a single motor in the centre and on more complex designed alloy wheels, additional machine inertia is desirable.

Replace Blast Wheels and Wear Parts

PART 1             The Case for Superior Blast Wheel / Turbine Efficiency

Your blast wheel is the “business end” of you shot blast machine.   It is the main component which delivers the blast media and performs the blast cleaning or peening process.rosler-gamma-y-wheel

Its performance is vital!

Not only is the blast wheel vital, it is probably the more expensive single item on the machine in terms of performance, productivity, time, maintenance, repair and wear part costs.

Focusing on your future

Retrofit Blast Wheels And Wear Parts

PART 2   The Case for Superior Blast Wheel / Turbine Efficiency

Less energy consumption up to 25% cost-savings and compliance to environmental policy.

Depending on the size and type of shot blast process i.e. type of machine – Table, Hanger, Barrel, or Through Conveyor, the cost of running per hour adds up.

A simple small table or hanger machine may pull between 11 amps to 60 amps / blast wheel.  A single blast wheel will require 5.5kW to say 30Kw.  Using a nominal 10p / kW hour, costs range from 55p to £3.00/ blast hour x 2,200 hours / annum equates to between £1,210 and £6,600.

Replacement Blast Wheel And Spare Parts

 PART 3         The Case for Superior Blast Wheel / Turbine Efficiency

Our / Your Aims

To reduce to a minimum the amount of maintenance labour required on the blast wheel.  By placing superior quality spare wear parts into the blast wheel, that will sustain and maintain the blast pattern between 2 and 20 times longer, depending on your application, choice of blast wheel and abrasive type employed.

Reduce the number of wear parts required to be purchased per annum, by making the spares of higher quality material and design, which wear at a much slower rate, and maintain their integrity for very much longer.

How To Achieve The Benefits, Savings And Additional Production

The Optimisation Of Stainless Steel Surfaces

Over the decades researchers have searched for optimal and efficient techniques to adequately recondition the surface of stainless steel after it has been subjected to various processes. This article examines the various processes currently used and the surface conditions achieved. An independent study has shown that water jet blasting may offer the best solution in terms of both the degree of smoothness achieved and the avoidance of using chemical products.
