Originally developed for Steel Grit and Shot applications, Burwell's Sweeper Blade System works perfectly with all Abrasives including Garnet, Aluminium Oxide, Glass Bead and Plastic Media.
Integrated with our High Performance End Draught Dust Extraction, a Blast Room from Burwell cleans the abrasive and extracts dust more efficiently providing maximum abrasive life, increased productivity and superior operator visibility.
Our System requires only minimal maintenance and energy consumption is extremely low. Coupled with low purchase and installation costs, there is just nothing else that performs as well as a Blast Room from Burwell.
Lets explain how Blast Rooms from Burwell works
The unique design of the Blast Rooms from Burwell combines the very best features of mechanical collection with pneumatic conveying and grit cleaning. Spent Abrasive falls through the Floor Grates into the Floor Pan Sections.
Sweeper Blades push the abrasive towards the Grit Conveyor on the forward stroke and retract on the return stroke. The Abrasive is then pushed into the Grit Conveyor where a Trash Screen removes workshop debris and rubbish.
The Grit Conveyor then transfers and elevates the abrasive through Burwell's Exclusive Magnetic Elbow (Ferrous Abrasive Applications) to the Grit Cleaner where dust fines are separated and exhausted to the Dust Collector. Clean abrasive drops into the Storage Hopper for re-use
Sweeper Blade Grit Recovery
Why is the unique Burwell Sweeper Blade System so efficient? Firstly, maintenance and repair costs are virtually eliminated.
This is because Grit never wears directly on Floor Pans and other parts. In fact a thin layer of Grit covers the Floor Pans at all times.
The Sweeper Blades are set to sweep all Grit above this layer. Grit against Grit equals NO wear. As the Sweeper Blades have rubber edges, they almost never wear out.
Also we use only one Pneumatic Conveyor incorporating the Exclusive Burwell Magnetic Elbow to minimise wear in Grit conveying. Secondly, our entire Floor System is driven by a 1.5 kw Motor providing significant energy savings over other Systems.
