Viking Blast & Wash Systems’ Model 1400S industrial tumble blaster is a batch-style cleaning system specifically designed for the high-speed processing of parts that can be gently tumbled.

This steel-belt tumble blaster strikes a balance between size and capability, the company says, featuring a 14-cubic-ft work envelope that blasts parts to the required production specifications in one cycle. The blast wheel is positioned to expose the breadth of the drum at the recommended load volume, and parts are presented to the unit in batch loads through the vertical pneumatic front door either manually or by means of a hydraulic loader. The option to remove parts through a belt-style or vibratory conveyor aid in the ability to quickly unload parts and streamline the operation, Viking says.

Grade 7 is “buff polished,” while the highest polish—the so-called mirror polish—is designated Grade 8
