Feed through blasting-container for the railway industry
A young and dynamic company was founded in 2004 with the aim to provide their services to companies in the railway sector. Due to expansion , they decided to build a new workshop in the Port of Antwerp, where they can execute the necessary test and repairs.
The company started as a support for the maintenance and repair for the fleet of wagons as well as the locomotives in a Belgian private railway.
Due to expansion , they decided to build a new workshop in the Port of Antwerp, where they can execute the necessary test and repairs. Prior to the ultrasonic testing these train carriages must be blasted.
In the year 2013, Straaltechniek supplied a feed through blasting-container with the size of 4 x 3 x 2,7mtr, equipped with two, pneumatically driven, longitudinal scraper-tracks of 1400mm and a cross-scraper track of 635mm width with a length of 2,8mtr. This horizontal grit transport system is connected with a 4m3 bucket elevator and a silo of 1.000ltr with a vibrating abrasive cleaner combination. Our well-known Blast Wizard® pressure blast pot provides the most constant blasting quality. The dust collector we choose is the Cobra SMT-30. This cost-efficient filter provides an excellent visibility in the blasting container.
