Wheelabrator Mesh Belt Systems Fill Cleaning Needs

Burlington, ON - (August 19, 2009) - Wheelabrator® Mesh Belt systems are ideal for cleaning diverse part shapes and surfaces. Foundries and die casters turn to this versatile system for their cleaning needs. Die cast components, pipe fittings, crankshafts and assorted other sand castings are commonly cleaned with this equipment. Equipped with a continuous flow-through conveyor, this MeshBlast® system eliminates potential part damage caused from part-on-part contact typical of tumbling cleaning systems. The mesh belt machine can require less part handling, resulting in lower operating costs.

The MeshBlast® line has three model types: Model 27, Model 36 and Model 42 with respective mesh belt conveyors ranging from 27" to 42" wide. The belts are made of manganese wire with different mesh openings and wire diameters are available to suit the weight and size of the parts. Blast cabinets are constructed from manganese steel for excellent wear resistance in steel shot applications. All Models can be supplied with 4 or 8 blast wheels, depending on the complexity of the parts to be cleaned. The number of blast wheels and the production rate will determine that horsepower selection. A range of horsepowers are available with each Wheelabrator MeshBlast machine.

Each MeshBlast system is equipped with an abrasive cleaning and recycling system with an airwash separator that removes sand and contaminants and returns a clean abrasive operating mix to the storage hopper. Several available optional accessories that add to the system's versatility are mesh belt load and unload extension conveyors, PLC controls and magnetic separators for foundry applications.
