Viking Blast & Wash Systems has been manufacturing industrial cleaning equipment for 40+ years. Our systems have evolved over that time as business and cleaning needs have changed. It’s not uncommon to hear in any heavy equipment industry, “they don’t make them like they used to”. With Viking it’s just the opposite. We have utilized advances in technology as well as expertise built from listening to our customer’s needs. Our engineering staff looks at every aspect of every product we produce to benefit from these advances and knowledge gained to continually improve our products.
With this product enhancement mentality, we make continual improvements, some of which can be seen in our specialty line of the MB1806P. This new series for deflashing plastic parts has many unique characteristics. The 4 blast wheels are not throwing steel shot but, rather a hard plastic media. This throwing technique requires the shot to have an additional solenoid for each blast wheel to reduce the static charge created during this process. This solenoid triggers a mist of an anti-static media to spray across the abrasive and reduce the static build-up. So, control on the wheel speed through VFD’s for each wheel and control of the mist is critcal. These two processes are controlled by the program running in the PLC.
• Air blow-off system. : Hi-volume air blow-off and air cannons remove carryout abrasive from the work.
• (4) VMAX Blast Wheel with VFD. Allows for control of throwing velocity.
• Anti-static pressurized spraying system.
