The VK PowerMax 1500 blast wheel is 15 inches in diameter and incorporates eight blades operating at 3,600 RPMS generating abrasive velocities of nearly 300 feet per second. The PowerMax 1500 is pre-tested, and the wheel components are weighed and balanced for smooth and precise operation. This wheel offers greater horsepower to the blade tip, providing more abrasive thrown per horsepower. It also offers a greater percentage of wheel weight in the abrasive resistant components and utilizes few replacement parts.
