Our experts inspect your overall blasting process, implement the correct air separator settings and any necessary hot spot adjustment to minimize wear and reduce you operation costs.

 


OPERATIONAL CHECKS



Blast Pattern Controls / Hot Spot Adjustment / Amp Efficiency Checks / Flow Optimization


 

Do you know the consequences of improper hot-spot setting?

Extra wear on blasting room shieldings and blasting wheel housing
Extra consumption of abrasive
Loss of blasting efficiency (= non-quality)

20% of the hot-spot area located on shieldings cause:

+10% abrasive consumption
-15% efficiency
+5% extra-wear of blasting room shieldings
+20-25% on the total blasting cost for a 8 x 22 kW wheel machine




MECHANICAL CHECKS



Blast Wheels / Air Separator Control & Adjustment / Material Handling system / Abrasive Reclaim System
/ Operating Mix Analysis / Waste Analysis


 

Do you know that poor air separator setting is one of the main causes of wear?

  • Too fine O.M.
  • Extra-wear on wheel blades
  • Too coarse O.M.
  • Low coverage higher blasting time extra-wear
  • Dust or sand in O.M.
  • Heavy extra-wear



Sand content of the operating mix has a major influence on blades lifetime.
