ABOUT BLASTING WHEEL

Besides the competitive price ir sm@rt wheel offers real cost savings and thus fast payback. Order your payback calculation in the inquiry bellow.

Better blasting results, shorter time of shot blasting process, higher impact energy – up to 70%, energy savings – up to 25%, adaptable blast pattern, automatic blast pattern control, automatic regulation of abrasive flow with sm@rt valve, decreased wear-out, vibrations and noise level of the blasting wheel.

Extremely long service life, high blasting reliability, blasting wheels spare parts of best quality made with the lowest tolerances, 3 material options of blasting wheel equipment: high quality cast (Basic), tool steel (Standard) or tungsten carbide – widia (Superior). Tool steel wearing parts ensure from 2 to 3 times longer service period. Tungsten carbide wearing parts ensure up to 16 times longer service period.

More than 150 combinations of materials and different types of spare parts ensure you to put together the shot blasting wheel that will best suit technical requirements and price.

QR code for access to the blasting wheels or shot blasting machine service book, manuals and technical information and easy order of spare parts. Blasting wheel, Sm@rt sensor system enables automatic prediction control of spare parts´s wear-out, order of spare parts and planning service intervales.

Up to 10.000 hours full guarantee, service checks, refund and replacement of all defective parts, full technical support from ir sm@rt team.

The blast wheel can be equipt with a module with rotating control cage, for blasting / peening different types of work pieces.

Basic – wearing parts of the wheel provide basic service life. Standard – wearing parts of the wheel provide long service life. Superior – wearing parts of the wheel provide extremely long service life.

Enables installation of different power of electric motors, different types and quality of wheel blast wearing parts (blades, control cage, inlet pipe, shields).

ir sm@rt wheel offers you a large selection of compontents, different according to quality and technical characteristics. All wheel parts are interchangeable, which means, for example: straight i-blade made from wear resistant cast steel can be later replaced with curved r-blade made from tungsten carbide, which enables up to 30% higher abrasive outlet speed and 8 to 16 times longer service life.

Module with rotating control cage, Supply filter, Trolley for wheels’ assembly, QR code, Sensors system, Blast pattern control and ir sm@rt abrasive valve.

With ir sm@rt wheel the energy consumption Is reduced up to 10% – 25%.

Is achieved by using high-quality blasting wheel materials, consistency of the hot spot zone and increased speed of shot. Save also up to 25% of the abrasive costs.

For wheelblasting machines, and shot peening machines, we offer the best ratio between the price, quality and efficiency.

Blast wheel design allows quick change of the most wearing parts such as blades, control cage, impeller and inlet pipe (app. 15 minutes). Control cage position can be locked with the degree scale and rotating flange. The installed guard holds the shield for it’s easier and faster change.

Service life of all shot blast wheel wear parts within the individual quality levels is uniformed. Wheel parts are manufactured within narrow tolerances which is shown in quieter and smoother running as also in lower vibrations of the wheel.

Because of higher impact energy, e.g. up to 70%, the time needed for shot blasting process is shorter (in comparison to conventional turbines).

The motors installed on the blast wheel are of special design with the straightened bearing assembly, with permanently greased bearings.

The motors correspond to the efficiency classes IE2 or IE3.

ir sm@rt wheel is equipped with a QR code, through which you can access to cloud application with different useful information about the wheel / shot blasting machine or peening machine (service book, manuals, parts wearing time etc.). With this application you can easily order blasting wheels spare parts. It has been developed to view the state of the wheel, the state of shot blasting machine and to have control over sm@rt sensor system.

It has been developed to control and to predict the wearing state of the blast wheel spare parts, to reduce the amount of spare parts for user, for quality assurance and quality control of the shot blasting process.

Blast pattern control is developed to control the blast pattern, the wear of the control cage and the angle of incidence of particles on the work piece. The sensor checks daily position of blast pattern. In case the sensor detects blast pattern offset from the desired area the control cage is automatically moved. With this system it is easier to control and ensure the same results of blasting / peening each day.

Blast pattern can be adjusted for different shot blasting purposes: blasting of casting, blasting of constructions, shot peening, etc. Desired blast pattern can be achieved by changing the geometry of control cage, which gives significantly better results and energy savings.

The wheel blast rotor is adequate for rotation in both directions.

For the blasting machines provides highly controllable shot flow rates to each wheel with precise flow regulation in very short time (around 3 sek). Variation in loading on the wheel or among the all wheels units is kept within 3%, the steady wheel engine load, ensures the same jet intensity day by day, and it works with all types of abrasive.

Our clients are our best recommendation

As advised in Gostol TST, we decided to install new long-life multi-option wheel lr 380 on shot blasting machine p-2000×1200. These blasting wheels enable us higher blasting productivity, longer service interval and lower power consuption. We are very satisfied with this decision, as the wheels ir full meet all our requirements.

Zlatko Rajf, TE-PRO d.o.o., Croatia

The selling engineers from Gostol TST offered us a wheel shot blasting machine with new IR wheels. As this was a new type of blasting wheel, it was explained that we would have increased performance, fast change over and easy maintenance, decreased wear and other advantages of the wheels convinced us to install IR Gostol wheels on the new machine. The new Wheels are operating well, we achieve good blasting results and now we know this was the right decision. We are also very satisfied as maintenance and change of wearing parts is very easy and fast. We can do this by ourselves, This saves us time and money.

Andrew Russell, Civmec Construction ˛Engineering Pty Ltd
We are very satisfied with operating of Gostol TST shot blasting machines, as they meet all our expectations, they proved to be reliable, effective and are very easy to operate. Blasting Machine GG-150 with new ir blast wheels even uprgrade operation of previous versions. Main advantages of new ir sm@rt blast wheel are: easier maintenance and service and longer service intervals, beside that we increased productivity of blasting and decreased energy consuption.
Toni Pevec, Marovt d.o.o.
From time of order to installation we have found Gostol TST to be a highly professional company to which have kept us informed of the progress at each step of the way. From factory acceptance test, delivery, installation and final commission, all performed as per the scheduled dates with no delays.
