The RC-80-160 is an abrasive recycling system which can be used inside or outside. Several types of reusable abrasive can be recycled by the RC-80-160 into bigbags or blast vessels. The rate of recycling depends upon the type of abrasive being processed. Garnet can be recycled at a rate of up to 11 tons per hour, steel abrasive can be recycled at a rate of up to 21 tons per hour*.
Dust laden air enters through the inlet plenum of the collector, where heavy particles fall immediately into the hopper. As the air flows through the filtercartridges, dust is deposited on the outside of the filtering media. The filtercartridges are cleaned automatically and continually without interrupting the operation of the dustcollector. An adjustable timer controls the cycletime. Solenoid valves introduce jets of high-pressure air into the cartridges in turn, through the venturi opening above each cartridge. The resulting reverse airflow cleans the filtercartridges. Dust removed from the filtersurface settles into the hopper. As each pair of filtercartridges is cleaned in succession, the remaining stay. The used abrasive has to be put into the abrasive hopper, then it comes in a regulated flow to the elevator. From the elevator it comes in the rotarysieve, with holes Ø 4, 5 and 6 mm at choice, if the abrasive is polluted with big parts like coatingscale, woodchips, glas, etc. these contamination are separated through the rotating movement of the sieve. Further is the sieve complete with a dust exhaust connection. After the sieve the abrasive is flowing through a cascade system. The air wash action can be regulated to control the size of the reusable abrasive. Dust and non-usable (to fine) abrasive are automatically discharged and collected in big bags or extracted by the separate filter. The cleaned abrasive will fall into the abrasive silo and is ready to be store into bigbags or into blast vessels.
The system is supplied complete with: crane hooks, inspection covers and flexibel dust-exhaust ducting to the bigbags.
