Airblast Eurospray recently completed a new blasting and spraying facility for flow control products specialist Flowserve.

Flowserve, an Irving, Texas-based supplier of pumps, valves, seals, automation and services across a range of industries, used blasting and spraying for the preparation of various valves and other products and wanted to gain control over this process by bringing it in house.

Airblast Eurospray in Lincolnshire, UK installed a modular style blast room measuring 7 m (length) × 5.5m (width) × 3 m (height). The blast room was designed to ensure that dust is moved quickly and efficiently through the booth to allow for clear visibility, to decrease wear on parts and to provide a better blast quality. The blast room recovery system also incorporated a bucket elevator and grit wash, which recycles the spent abrasive, feeding it back to a hopper installed above the blast machine. Airblast Eurospray also installed an industrial low bake combi spray booth for the spraying of beam and lattice fabrications.

The installation ran very smoothly with Airblast Eurospray working closely with Flowserve to ensure the project stayed on track and continued to meet demands. It was finished on time and to the agreed upon budget. Airblast Eurospray engineers remained on site to provide comprehensive training for all Flowserve staff to ensure that they were able to use the equipment efficiently and safely.

The project is now complete and the facility is up and running with hundreds of valves being processed every day.
