The LS Pipe Blaster blast cleans the exterior
surfaces of pipe and is capable of cleaning a
continuous flow of pipe from 1/8" to 13'
diameter. The LS blast unit incorporates impeller
driven blast technology to clean pipes on a production
line basis. Most pipe blasters involve screwing
the pipe through, although non-screwing models
The steel blast cabinet is 1/4"mag steel plate
for maximum strength and durability. The cabinet
is subjected to abrasive blast impact and we line
the cabinet with a wear resistant liner. Heavy
and special cabinets and wear plates area available.
The heart of the blast system is the impeller
wheel. The shot wheel propels the shot against
the part at a high velocity to provide efficient
cleaning action. Because the wheel and impeller
blades are vital to the operation of the machine,
LS uses a hardened abrasive resistant material
for the impeller blades. The blades are designed
for easy maintenance and replacement. Basic units
have only underthrow wheels which reduces the
initial cost and maintenance. Special models in
corporate overhead shot blast wheels.
The blaster use 1 - 4 motors, 10 - 30 HP to drive
the impeller wheel.
Shot Feed System:
Abrasive is returned to the system by gravity.
As shot is thrown up into the cabinet impacting
the pipe, it falls back into the wheel well cavity
and is reused. This system is very efficient and
requires fewer moving parts than other systems.
Overhead wheels use and elevator.
Material feed for small pipe is accomplished by
a series of canted vee rollers, which rotate the
pipe through the blast cabinet. This will provide
an even blast pattern on the pipe. A variable
speed control is standard. Large pipes require
All LS blasters include a dust collector as standard
