The CB 3630 shot-blast system from Viking has a blast width of 36 inches x 30 inches tall. This redesigned unit incorporates fuseless starters with phase loss and imbalance protection. Viking’s newest blasters come with zero-speed sensors as standard on the driven end of abrasive conveyance shafts, significantly reducing downtime when components wear out or fail. The air intake is very aggressive and allows for application of more air through the abrasive stream, providing cleaner abrasive and a cleaner cabinet. The cabinets are made of 3/8-inch-thick manganese alloy to ensure cabinet longevity. The cabinet is lined with bolt-in replaceable ½-inch ship-lapped, cast chrome wear liners mounted directly opposite the blast wheels, protecting the blast cabinet from direct blast abrasive impingement.
