Wet Blasting Systems part of the Guyson Corporation U.S.A. has just completed the design and build of a special wet blasting system for an Aerospace engine repair facility.
The WBS/Guyson Model 72×36 is a Dual Operator System is designed for cleaning and surface preparation of low volume high value aircraft engine components up to 55 inches in length and 24 inches in diameter. It is fabricated in 12-gauge 304 stainless steel material having a #4 polished finish.
For part entry/exit a pneumatically powered vertical lifting door is used. To support the component being processed a manual trolley having a 28 application. 11 diameter manual turntable is supplied.
The system has a 300-gallon heated, to 150 degrees F rinse solution tank built into the load/unload end extension for reduced floor space requirements. In addition, this tank is designed to be utilized as an immersion tank so that the largest part to be wet blast processed can be immersed in the solution tank for complete rinsing. The tank is fitted with a pedestal type rinse pump and a stainless-steel bag filter housing having a 25-micron filter bag.
The WBS/Guyson Model 72×36 Wet Blast System uses WBS designed and manufactured slurry pump which is lined with molded in urethane for years of trouble free life. The pump is mounted on the outside of the blast enclosure for ease of maintenance. The slurry pump is powered by motors ranging from 5hp to 20hp depending on the application and number of blast nozzles required for the application.
The WBS/Guyson pump is capable of pumping slurry in concentrations to 50% at flows to 200 GPM to meet the stringent aero industry requirements.
