COATINGSPRO SURFACE PREP 2018 39 RBW Enterprises, Inc. 136 Hillwood Circle Newnan GA 30263 (770) 251-8989 ROBOTIC BLASTING & PAINTING RBW Enterprises, Inc. manufactures centrifugal shot blast cleaning equipment. We specialize in portable shot blast systems, which can be used both in plant and in the field. We engineer and manufacture special blast cleaning systems to meet industry needs for surface preparation of pipe, tanks, wind towers, and steel plates. e FasterBlaster is the only centrifugal blast machine capable of cleaning both horizontal and vertical surfaces. Our FasterBlaster system incorporates many special features designed to improve cleaning quality, increase production, minimize maintenance, and lower labor costs. FasterBlaster shot blast machines utilize centrifugal blast wheels, driven by 30hp electric motors, to throw steel shot against the surface. No air is required in the blasting process. e machine seals tightly to the surface due to the high vacuum generated by the dust collector. ere are no emissions around the suction cup seal. e FasterBlaster16, our smaller machine, can clean closer around obstructions and the FasterBlaster32, the larger, high-production machine, is used for the wide open areas. e FasterBlaster is the only Portable Shot Blast Machine that cleans all Pipe, Plate, Tank Walls, Tank Roofs, Tank Floors, Dome Roofs and Wind Towers. RBW Enterprises is continuously working to meet the needs of our customers. To better serve those needs, we are introducing a new product line, the Faster Painter. e FasterPainter is an automated painting system that can be used for both spray and roller applications. e system is operated using the same hand-held remote control that is used to run the FasterBlaster. e operator can run the automated painting system safely from the ground, eliminat- ing costly man lifts and scaffolding. Guide cables keep the FasterPainter the proper distance from the tank so there is no contact with the wall. e hoist fixture rides on the tank roof and is operated by the hand-held remote, giving the operator full control of the painter's movement and speed in all directions. e FasterPainter is furnished with a spray nozzle and touch-up roller attachment. e customer has the option of purchasing a pressure paint pump or utilizing their existing unit. W hen using the FasterBlaster and FasterPainter systems, blasting and painting can be conducted simultaneously. Blowdown is not required prior to painting since the FasterBlaster's high-vacuum system leaves the surface virtually dust free. With these new robotic operating systems, the operator remains safely on the ground and since there are no emissions, containment is not required. e FasterBlaster system has traditionally been used to clean large diameter pipe from 8" to large wind tower sections. We have recently introduced the Small Pipe Seal Box which now allows cleaning of ½" to 6" diameter pipe. e Small Pipe Seal Box can quickly attach to the FasterBlaster in place of the main seal assembly. If you have a requirement for Robotic Blasting and Painting equipment, Please give us a call. We look forward to answering any questions you might have regarding our equip- ment and its use in your applications. Company Profile: RBW Enterprises, Inc. SPONSORED CONTENT
