Abrasive Blasting done right

Advanced Abrasive Blasting System

December 13, 2017

Our Fabricated Metal Room is 10-ft x 5-ft x 8.5-ft height made of 11-gage sheet metal. Large access doors at each end open to a full length gravity roller conveyor inside for easy movement and positioning of stone to be blasted. A baffle at the top permits installation of the dust collector ductwork. Metal room also includes an auger system for transferring abrasive out of room to the pneumatic abrasive pick up system for reuse. Sloped front and rear walls channel abrasive to auger. Auger flow is designed to match retrieval rate of the pneumatic abrasive pick up. 700 lbs of abrasive can be reclaimed in 10 minutes. 
All moving components are outside of the room and curtain to minimize wear. Drive mechanisms and electric motors are shielded and sealed. Electrical controls are industrial quality, oil and dust tight. Control system is pre-wired and tested at our Elberton location. 
Metal Room is fabricated complete, with access doors, auger system, conveyor, and ABC. It requires no holes to be drilled or pits to dig for installation. Completed Room is ready to be raised and set into place. (Power supply is to be established by a qualified electrician in your area.) Automatic Start/Stop feature for the ABC and Empire Abrasive Blaster is available as an option. 

Automatic Blasting Curtain

December 13, 2017

Automatic abrasive blasting with our Bicknell ABC is the answer to fast and accurate production at a lower cost. It completely outmodes tedious hand blasting. 
No additional curtain is required. Totally enclosed to minimize abrasive loss from the room.  
The blasting nozzle is always directed squarely at the work for a precision cut.  Vertical and horizontal travel can be quickly and easily adjusted to desired speed and  length of travel. The ABC will perform every kind of surface finishing from a light frost  to deeply carved letters and designs.  
All components are fabricated by Bicknell Supply Company to rigid quality standards.  The electric motors and controls are industrial quality, oil and dust tight units. Each unit is built complete and thoroughly tested by BSC for immediate installation.

BSC Shaping Curtain

December 13, 2017

Complete room front curtain for manual blasting. This curtain is designed for convenience in hand blasting and will keep abrasive dust from escaping your blast room when properly installed*. The fully extendable viewing window is mounted onto the midsection door that can be raised up and away for hands on inspection of work progress. Four-ply apron allows operator to move blasting hose with ease. Protected pillow block bearings allow for curtain to be raised and lowered with little effort. Three protected light sockets are mounted inside for better visibility. Also available with electric manual control of vertical curtain movement. Outside dimension is 7'-6" x 7'-6"

The media path through the valve is straight down, assuring dependable flow. Abrasive media contacts only one part, a gum rubber pinch tube. Not only is the tube exceptionally long lasting, it’s also inexpensive and simple to replace. This will provide more production time and virtually a maintenance-free operation. 

“780” Controls - Vessel remains pressurized, but stops blasting when you release the remote controls. This conserves compressed air and speeds up starts. 
“680” Controls - Vessel depressurizes when the remote controls are released. This enables the vessel to be refilled automatically when equipped for automatic reclaim. 


Automatic Stop/Start Controls are available for use with automated blasting systems.

*Roto-Pulse Cleaning

The Heart of the Micro Air Dust Collector 

Cleans cartridges dramatically better, up to 90% compared to conventional air cleaner back flush systems. Roto-Pulse provides for a much better cleaning of the cartridges. The air is pulsed into a specifically designed aluminum rotating tube with pre-drilled holes. As the air enters this tube, the force of the pulse causes the tube to rotate resulting in dirt particles being forced away from the cartridge from inside out. A more efficient cleaning cycle and extended cartridge life.
