Evolved from its EZEFit blast wheels, Wheelabrator’s EZX wheels features thicker, redesigned blades for easy assembly and longer wear life in heavy-duty foundry applications. The wheels can be retrofitted on a variety of equipment, including tumble-blast, table, hanger-type, horizontal-belt, plate and wire-mesh belt machines.

The impeller geometry minimizes shot loss and smooths the journey of the abrasive inside the wheel, the company says, reducing abrasive consumption without compromising performance. The 16"-diameter wheel currently is available in 35EZX160 size, and further models will be released this spring to enable direct replacement of all EZEFit sizes.
