Wheelabrator Vacublast Ventus 150 PR Pressure Fed Blast Cabinet

The Ventus pressure fed air blast cabinets from Wheelabrator have been designed specifically for production applications where a high work output is required, combined with optimum abrasive quality.

Wheelabrator Ventus pressure fed airblast cabinet.

In this standard hand blast cabinet, the blast nozzle is operated manually by the operator through the armholes and can be used with all dry and free running abrasives available on the market today.

The Wheelabrator Ventus 150 PR is a large capacity pressure blast cabinet with manual rotary table, separate 42 lite blast generator pressure pot and reclamation cleansing unit, designed and built for the aerospace industry. Working pressure of 12Bar, volume of 42 Litres. VPV83. Eferest GmbH

This used Vacublast pressure fed hand blast cabinet is essential when removing heavy corrosion, tough coatings or when high production rates are required.

Cleaning rates are up to 5 times the speed of a suction venturi cabinets and are suitable for use with a wide range of abrasives such as Steel shot, Aluminium oxide, Glass bead and walnut shell etc.

Pressure feed machines are commonly used in high production environments or on applications such as peening, surface coatings removal, surface preparation and general cleaning.

Blast chamber

The cabinet has 1230 x 1180 mm door fitted to the  right hand side of the machine. The door on this range of machines offers an effective seal to the chamber for a leak free operation.

Complete with a matching reverse pulse dust control plant, for the removal of the dust from the cabinet and provide the power to run the media recovery system.

Additional cabinet features include:

  • Internal lighting.
  • Viewing window.
  • Large operator armlets.
  • Loading / unloading fitted rails.
  • 1mtr rotary table.
  • Simple and safe foot pedal blast control.
  • 42 liter pressure feed pot with cabinet mounted blasting pressure regulator.

The extractor attached blast generator and reclamation cleansing unit.

The blast media is drawn through the base hopper and passed through a cyclonic separator were the amount of waste separation can be controlled by the setting of the air wash eductor. The air wash is set to retain the reusable media and reject the undersized and waste dust to the dust collector. 

The reusable media passes from the cyclone separator over a full width magnetic separator before dropping onto a vibrating debris screen which removes any over sized particles and debris from the process. 

Located at the bottom of the storage hopper is the 42l pressure vessel which stores the blast media ready for use.

What is Shot Blasting?

Shot Blasting can be used as a catch all term for a wide range of similar industrial processes. It is also called abrasive cleaning or abrasive surface finishing. During the shot blasting process a media material is fired at an object to remove remove burrs, flashing, paint, scale or rust and clean and smooth (or sometimes intentionally roughen) the surface.

There are several mechanical methods used to propel the media material including using compressed air or water streams, or airless methods such as wheel blasting.

The media used also differs depending on the results needed but the catch all term is shot, hence shot blasting. The shape, size and weight of the media will determine the outcome. Frequently a metal shot is used including steel grit, copper shots, and aluminum pellets. Some methods of shot blasting use silica sand (sand blasting - not in some countries due to health risks), glass beads (bead blasting), sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) or crushed nuts shells or kernels.
