The SSB-30 model is built with the same concept / design
as all of the "ShotBoy" and "Super ShotBoy" type of engineering
concepts and patents.
Regardless of its size, it must
It possesses our unique (patented)
high speed throwing wheel (Turbine Style). These extremely high
Impeller speeds makes us one of a kind.
It also is built with the insulation
materials; for sound proof which makes our equipment much quieter.
The use of special Insulation Material on the Inner Chamber for
cold temperature containment cold, allows us to claim that our
machines consume the least amount of liquid nitrogen in our industry
The features on this model is
as the Super ShotBoy "Electric" models;
- Programmable computer
(with our own created software)
- IO" color monitor
- Electric Parts Basket &
Impeller drive motors
- Bar Code Reader system
- High velocity impact (Impeller
speed & Media particulate)
- Enclosed Electrical compartment
in back housing of the unit (with swinging doors), (equipped
with lock/key latch)
- Media/Flash Separator -
Housed in the lower compartment (away from the hostile
- Automated main (Blast Chamber)
door & Parts Basket assembly
This feature is as follows:
Main door to Blast Chamber is in the open and ready to load parts
Parts Basket assembly is on a 30º angle with the top area
open and where the parts will be loaded (placed) in. Either manually
or with the use of a conveyor (parts mover).
Once the Parts Basket is loaded with parts (product), the Door/Basket
assembly can be directed to close, this will draw the basket into
the Blast Chamber & into position, the sealing surfaces will
As the other SSB'S, the deflashing data can now be entered into
the computer (program), unless it is already in the stored section
of the computer, then the operator only needs to recall the program
(part number, etc.) to retrieve the data, to begin the deflashing
The computer will control all functions, for example: the machine
will first start into a cool down mode, where the Parts Basket
will rotate (tumble) to set RPM's and the liquid nitrogen will
flow into the Blast Chamber to reach set temperature.
Once the temperature has reached
within 10º F to the set temperature, the Throw Wheel (Impeller)
will start rotating to the set RPMS. The Separator (which is
located in the lower compartment) will start. The Media Assist function
will start allowing clean/dry shop air or gaseous nitrogen (GN
flow through a sequence of nozzles. The Air or GN
force feeds the deflashing media particulate from the Media Hopper
(reservoir) through the feed tube and Sight Glass (on the front
face panel) and into the Throw Wheel housing. Thus, the Impeller
then shoots it into the Blast Chamber (into the Parts Basket) and
onto the parts, removing the excess/flash.
The media particulate and flash
will come out of the Parts Basket, go down through the Drain
Port, and into the Separator. Which will then separate the media
particulate from the heavier flash sending the flash to the Flash Reservoir
(located in the lower compartment, in the right floor quadrant). The
media particulate will then go into the Media Hopper (located in the
left floor quadrant). The media particulate is again forcefed as previously
mentioned over & over (repeatedly).
Once the selected cycle time
has been completed, all of the functions will stop except for
the Parts Basket. It will continue to rotate to the set time (Post
Tumble), to get rid of excess media particulate which was left in the
basket. At this same time the Door Blast feature will start. This Door
Blast feature is where air or GN
will blow off the ledge surface inside the Blast Chamber & Door
inner surface. This is to have as little media particulate spill
out as possible.
There is a Media Catch tray located
directly on the front face/under the door opening surfaces. This
is to catch any particulate which the Door Blast feature may
Upon the completion of the deflashing
cycle and post tumble, a computer function will continue to rotate
the Parts Basket until it has sensed that it is in the "Home"
position. This means that the motor drive shaft head and the Basket/Door
assembly are in line. An indication of this cycle end is shown by the
strobe light on the top/center of the machine, flashing for (10) ten
seconds - or longer, to activate thus opening the door, bringing the
Parts Basket and the Door out together.
Once this has happened the "Actuator"
device (in the center of the door) can be engaged. This will
automatically rotate the Parts Basket counter-clockwise/downward,
parts will fall out onto a conveyor or box.
The "Actuator" device can
now be commanded to relocate the parts basket to its load position.
More parts, another (pre-counted) load, can be placed into the Parts
Commanding the Door/Basket assembly
to close, latching the main door, locate and the Parts Basket
Assembly be ready to start another cycle. By activating the computer
to start the deflashing cycle you can continue on with the deflashing
