Dura-Blast 6BB Wheel Blast Machine

Dura-Blast 6BB Wheel Blast Machine

Neither portability nor customization are sacrificed in this higher-capacity wheel blast unit.

More space, more shot-blasting power

The 6BB Wheel Blast has the same foundational characteristics and build out as the 3BB with some key changes to increase its capacity (besides more room). Initial abrasive charge is 600 lbs instead of 300 lbs and horsepower for the blast wheel is increased from 10HP to 15HP. The mill capacity is also doubled–800 lbs compared to 400 lbs on the 3BB.

Abrasive recovery system–upgraded

To match the greater shot-blasting capabilities, the 6BB has a double v-belt system (opposed to single v-belt) for the abrasive cleaning and recovery system. Even with its larger size, capacity, and power the 6BB Wheel Blast remains customizable to meet production needs and improve longevity.

Operator Safety

As always, safety measures are incorporated, such as two-hand door down operation and standard guards, covers, and electrical protections.
