Tumble Slurry Blaster

Proceco's patented slurry blasting technology, also known as wet blasting, provides the ultimate parts cleaning performance within minutes. Their system's innovative design uses a blast wheel to accelerate and discharge the abrasive slurry at high velocity and in a controlled pattern to mechanically remove oxides, scale, carbon deposits, oils, and grease from metal part surfaces. It can be applied safely to all types of metals and is excellent for use on aluminum and other white metal components. The abrasive slurry is composed of abrasive media combined with a hot water-based alkali cleaning solution to provide a very clean and smooth finished surface ready for coating, painting, or remanufacturing operations.


The Proceco's Tumble Slurry Blaster is designed to automatically process batches of parts of various sizes loaded on the barrel work mill. The barrel mill tumbles the parts to expose all surfaces to the cleaning abrasive slurry. The entire process is automatically controlled by PLC.

Advantages:

  • No dust - No need for a dust collector
  • Does not require pre-and post-cleaning processes
  • Closed-loop process - both detergent and media are recycled
  • Does not require compressed air for blast motive force
  • Very clean and dust-free part surfaces
  • Can process wet, oily and greasy parts

Typical Parts Cleaning Process:

  • Alkali hot water wash stage
  • Slurry blasting stage
  • Alkali hot water rinse stage
