Dual-chamber part blasting machine allows loading while cleaning is in progress
Viking Blast & Wash Systems has introduced the SH 1545 indexing spinner hanger for blasting various part sizes and shapes.
The unit removes scale, flashing, corrosion, rust, and paint by indexing two 15-in.-dia. by 45-in.-high work envelopes on a continuous basis. As the chambers rotate, one compartment is blasted while the other chamber is loaded with parts without the need to shut down the machine.
Parts are presented on removable, rotating manganese parts trees with a 185-lb. capacity that expose the parts to the two 7.5-HP VC9 blast wheels. An adjustable control cage in the wheel allows for control of the abrasive pattern to achieve the highest percentage of shot impact on the work.
Each blast chamber is constructed of manganese chrome-alloy steel and lined with 0.25-in. manganese-alloy liners that protect the cabinet from abrasive wear. Safety light curtains protect operators from the rotating drum. The machine also uses a heavy-duty abrasive recycling system with an air wash separator that cleans the abrasive before blasting.
