Vertias Steel

Industry News - August 15, 2019

Veritas Steel is a leader in the bridge fabrication industry. Chances are you have driven over one of their many bridges including the Kentucky Lake Bridge in Benton, Kentucky and the Memorial Drive bridge in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Earlier this year Blast Cleaning Technologies assisted their Wausau, WI facility to upgrade their Wheelabrator™ Monorail Shot Blast Machine from out-dated belt driven blast wheels.  Veritas Steel decided to move forward and replace all eight wheels to our direct drive M3 TwistLOK™ eWheel™ and all eight abrasive valves to our MACV control valve assemblies. Our engineering team was able to utilize a pre-engineered adapter flange with a ½” thick Manganese steel flange inside the cabinet to repair damage near existing wheel openings. 

Veritas Steel

Veritas steel works very hard to meet or better their customer’s timelines. This meant we were not able to take the blast machine down during production hours to install the new blast wheels and valves. Our World Class Service Team installed the wheels over three weekends, ensuring the machine was back up and running for production each Monday morning.

The Wausau facility specializes in steel plate girders up to 10’ tall. The girders go from blast to paint and must have a specific profile for optimum paint adhesion. With the old belt-driven wheels, it would take 2-3 passes through the blast machine to achieve this profile. Since the upgrade to the direct drive TwistLOK™ eWheels™, most of their girders are clean after a single pass.

The return on investment will prove itself out and has already been shown to be paying for itself with improved efficiency and reduced maintenance.

Shot Blast Equipment Presentation at FABTECH 2018

Company News - October 2018

Please join us for FABTECH 2018, November 6–8, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

Carl Panzenhagen, President of Blast Cleaning Technologies will present on “Reducing the Strain with Limited Maintenance Resources to maintain your Shot Blasting Equipment”

This presentation is geared to address one of the hardest areas in business today; finding and training employees to staff the finishing process with electricians, operators and maintenance workers.  Over 60% of the people filling skilled trades will retire within the next 12-15 years with a smaller less skilled workforce coming in. The more automation, the more people you need to work and operate the equipment.  The presentation will focus on new solutions in finishing and some maintenance friendly features available today for your existing shot blasting equipment as well as what to look for in new shot blast equipment designs.  This will focus primarily on wheel blast, but we offer many of the same maintenance friendly features for our air blast designs as well.
