Wheelabrator Plus launches new Foundry Wheel
New Wheelabrator shot blast wheel for the foundry and forge industries: the SATURN HD Wheel
For the first time at GIFA, Wheelabrator Plus is presenting its new wheel for the foundry and forge industry, offering significant productivity improvements while reducing operational costs. The SATURN HD high performance wheel has been developed from many years of Wheelabrator Plus’ customer experience for both new equipment and the modernisation of existing blast systems.
The sophisticated design of the wheel means that it can be integrated easily onto non-Wheelabrator equipment without extensive modifications being required, as well as onto existing Wheelabrator and DISA blast machines. Upgrading your installation with a SATURN HD wheel offers a number of advantages. And a variety of adjustment options, such as different speed and pattern settings, ensure that the SATURN HD wheel can be optimised to meet all customer requirements.
Significantly improved blasting performance
The new blast wheel offers many benefits for all users of wheel blasting equipment. The new SATURN HD wheels ensure a high blasting performance and significantly improved results in cleaning, desanding, descaling and derusting applications. Moreover, throughput times are reduced, resulting in increased productivity.
The life cycle of the blast wheel, which features especially tough wear-resistant parts, is also significantly longer than that of many other wheel assemblies and will result in a reduction of maintenance, spare parts and operational costs. The SATURN HD blast wheel can be retrofitted onto all wheel blast equipment types including hanger type machines, tumblast machines, horizontal belt machines and table machines.
Due to the different size options and performance levels, its low maintenance costs and highly wear resistant parts, the SATURN HD is the perfect blast wheel for all heavy duty applications. Visit Wheelabrator Plus at GIFA in Hall 15, Booth G 34 to find out more and to see the wheel being demonstrated at 09:30hrs and 13:30hrs every day.
