The model 48T shot blaster from Viking Blast & Wash Systems (Rose Hill, KS) has a 48-inch-diameter capacity. Work height maximum is approximately 30 inches at the middle of the table (up to 34 inches at edge, pass 38 inches). The table is lined with a self-draining 3/8-inch-thick manganese alloy plate rotating at 5 RPM with a load capacity of 3,000 pounds. (Heavier weight capacities are available.)
The blast cabinet is constructed of 1/4-inch-thick AR 500 plate steel and reinforced with structural steel as needed. Cabinet is lined with ¼-inch-thick replaceable manganese plates in direct line with the stream. A full-opening, AR 500 plate door provides access to the rotating table, and a catch tray contains abrasive to the cabinet upon opening. The door has a gasket to provide a positive seal during operation. Pneumatically controlled latch locks the door during the blast cycle. Removable safety screen protects the abrasive system from oversize contaminants.
Airless blast cleaning is accomplished with 15-inch-diameter; 15-horsepower; 3,600-RPM VMax 1500 center-fed blast wheel lined with +1-inch-thick-perimeter cast chrome/moly wear plates (thicker than other major brands).
