A Wheelabrator® rotary mesh table system is suitable for cleaning small parts offline using one operator. The machine can process flame-cut shapes, fabrications, automotive parts, aluminum die castings, and forgings with an airless wheel blast process.
Parts and components are loaded onto a 3/8-in.-thick manganese wire mesh table or fixtures that rotate through the blast zone, exposing the parts to top- and bottom-mounted blast wheels.
The table is equipped with a 20-in.-wide manganese wire-mesh work conveyor table with a variable-speed drive. The airless blast system consists of four 13.5-in.-dia. Autoblast® wheel assemblies, direct driven by 10-HP motors. EZEFIT® wheels are available as an option.
Abrasive is contained by drop-in-style polyurethane seals and is reclaimed and recycled by a multi-ply elevator belt with cast malleable iron buckets. New abrasive is supplied by a floor-mounted abrasive adder.
