Customer Success Story - October 3, 2019

ISSUE:

Busy iron foundry was experiencing cleaning issues with their old Autoblast® wheels.

SOLUTION:

  • Replaced (6) Autoblast® Wheels with BCT M3 e-Wheels™
  • Updated blast wheel wall and repositioned wheels for better angles of attack
  • Provided new MACV Abrasive Valves
  • Installed new 72” HE Magnetic Separator due to heavy sand volumes

RESULTS:

  • Improved cleaning times 30-40% on all castings
  • Greatly improved overall blast coverage and part finish
  • Significant motor life improvement due to better alignment and bare wheel balance
  • Decreased maintenance downtime as wheels are so efficient
