Pangborn Takes New Blast Wheel on Tour

Fairburn, Ga. (June 12, 2009) - Pangborn Corp. is taking its new Genesis blast wheel on the road to visit customers who are interested in seeing the latest innovations in surface preparation technology.

Pangborn sales representatives are crisscrossing the country, hauling Genesis blast wheels for prospective buyers to see. To sign up for a "Genesis to Go" visit to your plant, call 800-638-3000.

"We have four Pangborn Demonstration Units showing our new Genesis models to plant managers and their maintenance and engineering teams so they can see the wheel up close and familiarize themselves with its many key features and benefits," said Donna Gordon, Pangborn's vice president of business development.

The Genesis product family has more than a dozen new features designed to reduce maintenance time, save money and improve efficiency. The latest advances include:

  • Easy assembly and maintenance. Front-of-housing access to runnerheads is just one of the Genesis features that enable full assembly in less than one hour. Setting the pattern length is now a quick, one-step job. Dual-tapered vanes eliminate "shot locking."
  • Long-lasting parts. Genesis has replaceable housing liners, which are less expensive to replace than one-piece cast manganese housings. Cast linings are made with Pangborn's proprietary P-41 metallurgy. Tight tolerances result in significantly less wear.
  • Economical operation. Users of all Genesis wheels can expect rapid ROI from simplified maintenance, faster cleaning cycles and high longevity of parts. In addition, the low-speed wheel saves money through reduced consumption of abrasives and lower power requirements.
  • Increased safety. New safety innovations include a lid with pin-locked safety hinges, an integral U-shaped feed spout safety lock, and rapid release vanes.
