Waterblast Cleaning

Removal of casting shells has never been so easy

Designed as a complete control system, the WBS cabinets are equipped with the necessary hardware to monitor and control not only the blast cabinet, but also the high pressure pump, filtration system and debris conveyor components of the system.

Our waterblast systems can be adapted to existing systems or sold as a complete solution.

WBS500

Manual Cabinet

Overview

A fully enclosed manual waterblast cabinet

Tree rotation, tree tilt (45° forward and back), and in/out motion is all controlled electronically via the joystick controller, as is the nozzle up/down motion.  Nozzle tilt motion (45° in all directions) uses direct control cables to give better feel and responsiveness to the operator.

Key Specs

Maximum blast pressure 10,000 psi
Tree envelope (Max) 800mm diameter X 800mm height
High Pressure Pump 45kW with 40lpm flow rate
Water Filtration System Proportional control with chiller system and settling tanks (4 x 1,000lt)

Options

Drag Conveyor

The WBS Drag Conveyor removes all of the shell material from the blast cabinet as well as facilitate water into the settling system for recycling. The conveyor can be supplied with a bin or designed to customer specifications.

High Pressure Pump

  • Easily integrates into cabinet control system.
  • Quality Gardner Denver Partek Pump.
  • 10,000 psi high pressure.

Filtration System

  • Easily integrates into cabinet control system.
  • Provides clean, chilled water to protect pump components.
  • Re-use up to 95% of input water

WBS750

Automatic Cabinet

Overview

Automatic nozzle for greater versatility

The WBS750 adds an automatic nozzle to the manual cabinet.  The automatic cycle provides a rotating nozzle that is programmed via a touchscreen interface to remove the bulk of investment casting shell.  Once the cycle is complete, the workpiece remains where it is so that the operator can take control of the manual nozzle and clean the finer details.
