Rutten “C” and “Y” Blast Wheel Turbines
The Long-life Rutten has the longest ultimate life expectancy of any, lasting upto 20 times longer than a standard blast wheel or turbine.
This is a highly-engineered blast wheel with exceptionally tight tolerances and built-in specialist superior steel alloys. Due to the higher value materials and the high specification machining costs of these materials, the initial investment and cost of component wear parts are more highly valued.
However, if maintenance and/or production problems are presently a big issue, the economics of this blast wheel can be demonstrated in ultimately high production speeds and demanding applications.
Least Maintenance And Highest Specifications
Less costs for maintenance up to 16 times higher wear resistance and service life of up to 40,000 operating hours (over 18 years on a single shift).
The proven Rutten Long-Life turbines, equipped with components made from carbide steel are characterised by their extremely long service life of up to 40,000 operating hours resulting in significantly higher equipment uptimes and drastically reduced time requirements for maintenance.
They offer substantial savings in energy consumption and spare part costs/hour. The blades have a precise design with a high recognition value and in addition allows the “Y” blade to be turned and used twice. Long-Life turbines are installed in a wide range of new shot blast equipment and can be easily retrofitted into existing shot blast machines.

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.
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.

Wear parts in your shot blast machine are the: blades/vanes, control cage, impellor and side / top wear plates in the blast wheel(s) themselves and the wear protection plates in the blast zone (in the area calculated to have the most impact from the abrasive when it is thrown from the wheel).
