Project: Cleaning of railway axles before inspection with magnetic flux
Industry: Railway industry
Problem: Italian railway company Trenitalia was looking for ecological solution to clean railway axles before inspection with magnetic flux. The cleaning procedure must not be too aggressive, because the base material must not be damaged, but the tough coating must be removed.
Solution: FerroECOBlast provided a solution for cleaning railway axles with special mix of soda and abrasive medium. We made a large blast cabinet BLAST 27-16 WHE with sliding doors, in which the wheels are positioned by a crane or a forklift. Blast cleaning is performed manually and activated by a foot pedal. Rotation of the wheels is also activated by a separate foot pedal.
