Upblast EZEFIT(TM)Wheel for Wheelabrator High-Production Pipe Machines

LaGrange, GA - (April, 30 2007) - The new Upblast EZEFIT(TM) Wheel by Wheelabrator® is ideal for high-production pipe cleaning machines that must meet the stringent surface preparation requirements of the pipe coating industry.

The wheels mount in the blast cabinet and are positioned under the pipe to maintain a close and consistent distance to the underside portion of the pipe regardless of the pipe diameter. This location results in the fastest removal of rust, scale and other contaminants while achieving the mandatory surface profile for effective bonding of the protective coating.

The Upblast EZEFIT wheel design has been retrofitted on Wheelabrator machines and other manufacturers' blast machines. The range of pipe sizes cleaned range from 2" up to 120 inches in diameter. The new wheel is easier to maintain than previous designs and has longer wear life with lower abrasive consumption.

The unique design of the EZEFIT wheel offers the inherent advantage of bi-directional rotation and lower replacement parts inventory through the ability to serve clockwise or counterclockwise wheel applications with a single style wheel. Wheelabrator has capitalized on this advantage with a direct-drive or belt-driven design that offers standard or custom base mounting for increased versatility.

In addition to Upblast EZEFIT wheels, Wheelabrator downblast wheels are available for pipe applications as well.
