VIKING BLAST & WASH SYSTEMS released the newest machine in its Industrial line of pass-through blasters, the RT 1212. This new and redesigned unit has a blast width of 12 in. by 12 in. tall, and brings new efficiency to operators.
This redesigned unit’s blast wheels are arranged to blast leading and trailing edges of the work area. It also incorporates starters with phase loss and imbalance protection.
Viking's newest blasters come with zero-speed sensors as standard on the driven end of abrasive conveyance shafts, significantly reducing down time when components wear out or fail.
The air intake is very aggressive and allows for application of more air through the abrasive stream, providing cleaner abrasive and a cleaner cabinet. The cabinets are made of 11-14% manganese or AR 500, depending on the specific application.
Roller conveyance in the cabinet is made from wear-resistant materials and Viking offers external roller conveyance as optional. Roller conveyors have variable-speed as well as reversing capability. The cabinet is lined with replaceable 1/2 in. thick, cast chrome/moly liners, giving it the highest degree of wear resistance. Most applications are covered by the standard offering, but also can be fitted with a rotary scalping drum, auxiliary abrasive hoppers, and 7.5-HP or 10-HP blast wheels verses the standard 5 HP.
This specific unit is equipped with four 5-HP VC9, direct-drive blast wheels to deliver high volume abrasive at 230 feet per second velocity to clean parts.
All Viking cartridge-style dust collectors are sold with NFPA required deflagration panels as standard.
