A few months ago we introduced the new 900VMB vertical steel blasting machine together with a video about the machine which you can watch below. Similar to the Blastrac 350VH, the Blastrac 900VMB is ideally suited for medium and large-sized vertical steel blast cleaning jobs and applications. Please take a look at its product page for more information about its technical specifications and available accessories / options.
The Vertical Steel Blasting Project
Today we would like to inform you about a successful vertical steel blasting project we did recently. Our 900VMB was used to steel blast a storage tank with floating roof. Here's a summary of the project:
|Type of tank||Floating roof incl. fire pipes|
|Diameter of tank||42 meter|
|Height of tank||14 meter|
|Total blasted||1450m2 (80%)|
|Type of coating||Coating ca 300/400 micron|
|Profile requirements||Req. blast cleaning SA1
(Removal of paint and loose scale)
|Abrasive consumption||0.7 kg/m2|
We also made a short video about this project which you can watch below. It shows how easy it is to steel blast vertical surfaces with the Blastrac 900VMB together with a Blastrac vertical rigging system.
Horizontal Steel Blasting Equipment
As well as vertical steel blasting systems, Blastrac also manufactures horizontal steel blasting machines ideal for preparing steel surfaces such as storage tank floors, roofs, steel plates, tank tops and more.
Please contact us if you have any questions about this project, steel blasting with Blastrac equipment or any other subject regarding surface preparation!
