Blast Equipment for Large-Scale Applications

Structural Descaling Machines

BLASTEC® MANUFACTURES ALL TYPES OF DESCALING SYSTEMS for the structural steel industry at the fastest line speeds available. Whether your application is angles, channels and other miscellaneous structural steel or massive bridge girders towering at sixteen feet, Blastec® can manufacture a system that is right for you. We also offer SmartBlast®, a Blastec® first, combining oscillating wheel panels with Programmable Logic Control to give unparalleled cleaning for complex weldments. Roller conveyors, work car/drag chain and overhead conveyor systems are available.

Plate Descaling Machines

BLASTEC® MANUFACTURES COMPLETE PRESERVATION LINES and plate descaling machines, for both horizontal and vertical applications, at line speeds in excess of any other manufacturer. Plates can be up to 15ft. wide. Our patented horizontal plate machine design can be configured to process structural shapes for pre-blasting materials prior to fabrication as well.

Wind Tower Descaling Machines

Blastec’s® Wind Tower O.D. blast machine provides a high quality, uniform surface profile while removing scale and rust from large carbon. steel tower sections. A combination of Smart Blast® control technology and surrounding the tower section with Blastec® Wheel technology results in a consistent anchor profile for today’s modern coatings. This system will dramatically reduce your blast production time and improve the quality of your towers’ surface consistency prior to finishing.

Our work transport system utilizes a heavy duty drag chain conveyor system with variable speed drive controls. The work transport system operates in both directions. The system also includes a continuous abrasive reclamation system.

Our standard machine is capable of through put speeds of up to 12 feet per minute.

Clean a 100 ft. tower section in less than 10 minutes.

Blast base sections, middle sections and top sections 14’ diameter and larger.

Save an estimated 12 man hours per section verses traditional air blasting.

Rail CAr Descaling Machines

THE BLASTEC® RAIL DESCALING SYSTEM features Blastec SmartBlast® Control for maximum blast cleaning efficiency providing a consistent surface profile. In addition to general overall blast cleaning, our control system provides the ability to automatically concentrate the blast pattern on specific “hard to clean” areas, providing the required degree of cleaning without over-blasting other areas. The Blastec SmartBlast® Descaling System decreased cycle times by 50% as compared to other equipment in the market.

  • Multiple blast formulas tailored to each rail car: hopper, gondola, box cars, etc.
  • Heavy duty variable speed car towing system
  • Continuous abrasive reclamation system
  • Double abrasive storage hopper design
  • Entrance and exit vestibules,
  • Abrasive touch up booth
  • Blow-off enclosure and dust collection system.

Bar / Wire Descaling Machines

Blastec® manufactures customized Bar-Wire-Rod descaling machines to the customers’ exact specifications, at line speeds in excess of any other manufacturers typical equipment. From single wire to multi bar machine, processing up to 18 bars at a time.

Continuous Strip Descaling

Blastec® manufactures Continuous Strip Descaling machines to the customers’ exact specifications at line speeds, per machine, in excess of any other manufacturer. Two or more machines can be put in tandem to achieve the desired cleaning at virtually any line speed.

Blastec’s® unique diamond-shaped double compartment design reduces unnecessary wear on wheel components. The Blastec® blast pattern allows the wheel to be placed closer to the work surface than any other manufacturer while still covering the entire width of the strip.Blastec® manufactures strip systems for both carbon steel and stainless steel.

Blastec® also retrofits other manufacturers’ Strip Descaling Machines with the patented Blastec® shot blast wheel, to:

Increase line speeds

Improve performance

Decrease energy consumption

Decrease maintenance costs

Table Blast Machines

Blastec® manufactures Table Blast Machines for various foundry and descaling applications to achieve the desired cleanliness and cycle times. Blastec® retrofits other manufacturers Table Blast machines with the patented Blastec® shot blast wheel, to:

  • Decrease cycle times
  • Decrease maintenance costs
  • Decrease energy costs

Drum and Lid Descaling

Blastec® manufactures descaling machines for 30, 55, and 85 gallon steel drums and lids, with production rates in excess of any other manufacturer’s equipment.

Our patented machine design is capable of up to 4,000 barrels per 8 hour shift. Blastec® lid cleaning machines complement our drum cleaning machines, providing a true drum processing system.

Blastec® retrofits other manufacturers drum and lid descaling machines with the patented Blastec® shot blast wheel to:

Increase line speeds

Improve performance

Decrease energy consumption

Decrease maintenance costs

Spinner Hangar Machines

Blastec’s® Spin-Blast machine is equipped with a four-compartment turnstile arrangement for material handling. Each compartment is equipped with a rotating work hook, driven by Blastec’s® exclusive externally mounted work rotation drive wheel assembly.

The work hook envelope is 4 feet in diameter by 6 feet high and is designed for the specific product to be cleaned, (i.e. castings to weldments, stove grates to hot water heaters). Production rates from 15 to 60 seconds per work hook make this a truly a universal machine.

Tumble Blast Machines

The Heavy Duty Blastec 34 Cube Tumble-Blast Machine is the most rugged, heavy duty machine available anywhere.

Featuring two ultra-efficient Blastec Wheels, heavy-duty mill belt, manganese cabinet and component protection plates, this machine will out produce our competitor’s comparable equipment while consuming fewer maintenance dollars.

Cycle times for the Blastec Tumble-Blast machines are consistently lower than those of competitive equipment.

Wire Mesh Belt Machines

Blastec® Wire Mesh Belt Descaling machines for continuous pass-through cleaning, descaling and surface prep of flat and/or complex parts, such as forged parts, formed or cut parts, castings, and more.

  • High-efficient blast wheels
  • Heavy duty work hardened manganese steel wire mesh belt
  • Continuous flow through process design
  • Variable line speed capability and blast wheel arrangements
  • Automatic abrasive removal options
  • Versatile part cleaning applications
