Have You Inspected Your Cabinet Liners Recently?

January 2021

With the limited time available to inspect and maintain your blast equipment, its critical to monitor the gradual day to day wear.  Blast equipment can be very self-destructive if not timely and properly maintained. 
Maintaining your liners reduces:

  • Unplanned down time
  • Abrasive loss
  • Safety issues
  • Collateral damage

All liners will wear out!  It is important to routinely inspect the liners and determine where the wear is coming from.  We recommend liners be scheduled for replacement or relocation whenever any portion of the liner is worn to 50% of its original thickness.  Worn cast liners can be swapped/relocated with each other to extend usable life.  Cracked or broken liners should be scheduled for immediate replacement.

BCT keeps plenty of replacement parts in stock that can be shipped the same day you order! We can even do custom manganese liner cutting on our laser to fit your desired machine. Give us a call today to get some replacement liners.

Customer Orders Another Eight Wheels!

Customer Success Story - December 17th, 2020

ISSUE: Customer contacted BCT because their (12) high-speed BCP Autoblast™ wheels were no longer keeping up with their production. 

SOLUTION: BCT surveyed the application and the customer purchased (8) M5 low speed eWheels™. 
It is great to see that our customers are benefiting from our equipment’s efficiency, durability, and advanced technology.  They have reported back the following:

  • Lower parts cost due to low-speed operation
  • Reduced abrasive consumption due to low-speed operation
  • Less blast cabinet wear due to low-speed blast wheels and better blast targeting
  • Largest blast pattern eliminates the need for 4 center wheels
  • Significant energy savings going to low-speed premium efficient motors
  • Common wear parts with existing M5 wheels to reduce spare parts requirements
  • Reduced maintenance requirements due to fewer wheels and better component life

Our e-Wheels™ are the technology of the future and in high demand! All our wheels come with our TwistLOK™ technology that eliminates hardware! That means no more threads! Contact us today to learn how our e-Wheels™ can improve your business today.

BCT Takes 40 Minutes Off Drum Cycle Time!

Customer Success Story – December 2020

ISSUE: Customer contacts BCT because they were having multiple problems with a competitor’s drum:

  • Cone wears often
  • Long cycle times – 140 minutes or more
  • Flat parts do not tumble well in the OEM ridge – poorly designed drum
  • Drum drive design is high maintenance
  • A tight drum band round tolerance required along with it being concentric to the shaft within .06”

SOLUTION: BCT was successfully able to help improve this drum in a few different ways:

  • Design a wedge/pod to mount the wheel to offset the pattern to the right. This will focus the blast on the parts and not the cone, reducing wear and cycle time
  • Increase the blade length from 14” to 16” and utilize Wave Blade Technology™
  • Redesign drum to a one-piece welded design eliminating pinch points and improving the tumbling action by using engineered tumble ridges

BCT considers this drum to be a huge win for the company as we highlighted our solution to resolve issues and reduce blast cycle times!

BCT Waterjet

Company News - September 17, 2019

After moving to our bigger and better facility, Blast Cleaning Technologies wanted to focus on making as many parts as we could in-house. Prior to moving into facility, we would outsource materials to have them cut and then shipped in to be processed. Here at BCT, we want to be as hands-on as possible and make sure that we are giving our customers the best quality parts and equipment. When being outsourced BCT wasn’t able to have a hands-on approach in the first processing of our customers materials. Because of this, we installed our OMAX CNC Waterjet Cutting Machine in October of 2018.

Our waterjet can be programmed through a nesting software that aides in cutting any and all shapes and sizes up to a 10x20 cutting envelope. Most of the materials that we cut here at BCT are 1 inch thick, but we have the capability to cut material as thick as 6 inches. Waterjets do not induce any heat; this ensures that all our manganese steel is as strong as possible. When heat is applied to metal it changes the metal’s characteristics making it brittle and susceptible to breakage.

Other notable qualities about the Waterjet is that there are little to no wasted materials. Since the cutting is so precise, we can cut the products right next to each other with little to no gaping! Here at BCT we also recycle 100% of the water used by the jet.

Blast Cleaning Technologies investment will continue to prove as well as pay for itself with improved efficiency and quality!
