Understanding blast turbines for media acceleration

The blast turbines are at the center of every turbine shot blast machine. The turbines are essentially determining the shot blasting results. And as components requiring intensive maintenance, the represent a significant potential for cost savings. In this seminar we will inform you about the various turbine components, how the blast pattern is generated, and which factors determine the media throwing speed. In addition, we will provide you with an overview over the different applications for blast turbines.

We'll get you on track

Seminar/training content:

In practical exercises you have the opportunity of setting up the turbine parameters and monitoring them during the actual operation. This will allow you to exploit the full potential of the turbines in your own equipment

  • Blast media throughput and throwing speed
  • Blast pattern control
  • Wear

Target groups:
Technical personnel with different professional backgrounds from the areas production, work preparation, quality control, product development and production planning.
