Stand By for Savings: The Digital Tool Enabling Energy-Efficient Shot Blasting

Shot blast machines wheel blast ones in particular use a lot of energy due the power required to accelerate the abrasive. Bringing that energy consumption down while maintaining a stable blast process could unlock savings and support sustainability agendas.Digital Tool shot blasting

However, most blast machine users do not and cannot currently record energy use of their machines alongside other process parameters to identify periods of high usage or unproductive time. Without this data, there is no way of improving a machine’s energy performance in a targeted way.

Leveraging Norican’s Monitizer software and NoriGate hardware, the new digital tool from Wheelabrator offers an ideal solution.

Track Parameters, Drive Down Energy Consumption

By tracking KPIs to strategically optimise standby and idle times, turbine rpms and more, it allows operators and managers to instantly see if their machines are using unusually high amounts of energy, find the cause and tweak the process. Over time, the running of the machine can be adapted for even better energy efficiency without negatively affecting blast results or throughput (in fact, both may be improved as a side-effect of energy reduction efforts).
