The most specified product in our range. This scraper floor has many features that separate it from those offered by our competitors. The scrapers comprise of a natural rubber flap set against a steel comb, multiples of which are set in 10' long frames. This assembly is then adjoined to others to form a corridor running the length of the blast booth.
Available in six standard widths, each corridor moves in a reciprocating back and forth motion. Because the distance between the scrapers is less than the distance of travel, each scraper moves abrasive forward, as the rubber flap in this direction is locked against the steel comb behind it, to the next (A) in a shunting motion. On the reverse stroke the rubber scraper blade, unhindered in this direction by the steel comb, is free to pass over the
previous scrappers deposit of abrasive (B). The abrasive is pushed forward to a final corridor positioned at right angles to the booth where it conveys the abrasive to an elevator and is recycled.
The depth of the recovery channel is only 5" ensuring that in many instances, ie. those where objects being taken into the booth may be carried by hand, it can be located directly onto an existing factory floor. When a flush finish is required between the factory floor and the blast room, only minor excavation is required. The scraper system
is covered by a pedestrian grating (C) on which the operator stands and through which the abrasive falls. In certain applications when heavy items are being processed, this grating can be increased in strength to provide greater loading capacities. An alternative method of supporting a heavier item is to incorporate rails into the floor, positioned conveniently between the recovery corridors on which a cart can be mounted.
