Straaltechniek UK are pleased to announce the supply and commissioning of a large shot blasting facility at the


Huffey Group headquarters in Grantham For many years


The Huffey Group have manufactured a diverse range of machines and components all requiring a shot blasting process prior to painting however, one particular component the lorry sub-frame for the


Fruehauf range of products could not be automatically blasted due to the fact it was far too large and complex in shape for the existing blast facility.


Huffey had previously used an automatic wheel shot blasting machine which Straaltechniek had modernised with new High Performance Long Life blast wheels and the highly efficient ‘No Grip’ magnetic abrasive valves but after prolonged technical discussions it was decided to take out this facility and replace it with a large manually operated air blast room which encompassed all the criteria that Huffey required.


The new air blast room machine is 16m long by 6m wide and 6m high with large fully opening doors at each end. A bogie table which can be taken through the machine allowing the shot blasting of the sub-frames to take place and is then taken directly to the painting station.


The machine has a central screw conveyer system which automatically conveys the used abrasive to the elevator and in turn takes it to the separator which cleans the abrasive. The design team foresaw a potential problem as quite often nuts; bolts and tramp metal could fall off some components and find their way into the abrasive separator, so a scalping drum was incorporated into the system which is a device that automatically takes out any oversize contaminants. The steel abrasive is then fed back into the blasting pressure vessel for reuse.

A 24 cartridge dust collector was also part of the installation which takes out of the system all the airborne dust ensuring that the operator is working in a clean and safe environment.


Straaltechniek have made many large rooms in the past for shipyards, foundries and large fabricators throughout the world so The Huffey

Group found our vast experience and location within 50 miles of their factory a plus point for future service of the machine.


The final purchasing decision, took into consideration that Straaltechniek have 11 fully equipped mobile service engineers and were the only company to offer a 24/7 emergency call out to their customers which was important to the Huffey Group for continued and profitable operation of the machine in the future.
