Abrasive Belt Cleaning Cabinet-“AbraSand™-Cab”: (Specifications)

The general specifications for our standard AbraSand™-Cabinet are as follows. The following specs are for a cabinet designed to clean two different sizes of sanding belts. The cabinets can be modified to clean from one size of belt circumference to various sizes of belts, and modified for belt widths also. The AbraSand™ process is non-destructive and can clean both cloth and paper belts without moisture.

– Enclosed metal cabinet (powder-coated) with the following approximate dimensions: (8’wide x 7 1/2’high x 3’deep). The cabinet is equipped with multiple duct boot ports allowing for attachment to the plant ventilation system for belt debris removal, and accommodates belts up to 60” wide.

– The cabinet contains a tempered-glass or poly eye-level viewing window, internal lighting, and has adjustable belt width mechanical limit switches. The cabinet opens from the left side with a hinged door to allow for the insertion and removal of the belts. The drive roller structure has been strengthened to allow for the belts to be installed and removed without the need for a roller stabilizer to be fastened and unfastened.

– Internal components include one power drive roller and an adjustment/ tensioning roller, with optional idler roller(s). The power roller is rotated by a heavy-duty, high-torque, continuous-duty electric motor. The two-tier tensioning configuration allows for quick adjustments to accommodate belts between two different circumferences (for instance between 75” and 103” belts). The cabinet has been designed to quickly seek and adjust to two primary belt cleaning positions, allowing for a much quicker belt tensioning/de-tensioning procedure.

– A protected easy access, chain-driven tracking rail, installed inside of the cabinet, carries the blasting gun and nozzle the width of the belts to be cleaned. All necessary internal air and dry ice hoses and piping, complete with fittings and insulation are included. Bi-directional movement of the blasting gun is accomplished with a low-voltage, high-torque, continuous duty-cycle electric motor.

– An internally mounted dry ice blaster is included in the cabinet, requiring dry ice cleaning media, compressed air, and 110V electricity (15 amp service) for the Cleaning Cabinet to be operational. Optimal minimum air requirements for effective cleaning and efficient dry ice use for abrasive belts are 90 psi @ 250 cfm. Evacuation flow should exceed the cfm for blasting air for proper removal of particulate.

– The cabinet includes a programmable PLC/HMI Touchscreen Control Panel, which will control the speed and direction of the gun, belt circumference positioning, belt tensioning, and the necessary dry ice blaster initiation, purge controls, and emergency stop.

ABRASAND™ ON

AbraSand™ 4.0

IceClean Systems now offers our upgraded, on-sander system, AbraSand™4.0. The system includes 1) a dry ice blaster, 2) a control panel with PLC system and Human Machine Interface (HMI) (mounted on a metal stand), 3) a mounted Manifold for each sanding head, containing both dry ice and air valves, fittings, and electronics, and 4) chain-driven tracking rail for each head (including all motors, brackets, hoses, wiring, insulation, guns, limit switches, and nozzles), all installed. AbraSand4.0 components are rated for hundreds of thousands of cycles.

Our AbraSand4.0 system is capable of controlling an unlimited number of sanding heads, password-protected programming for various cleaning cycles and sequences, adding additional heads to clean, and various durations of time for cleaning for each head.  Purge controls are included, so that all ice lines can be purged at the operators’ desire. Also included is a manual override, which allows a cleaning cycle to be interrupted, if needed, and then restarted manually. The operation manual is included within the system for viewing on the human interface.

As any other upgrades or other modifications to the programming are desired, they can easily be made to this system via programming or expansion of the system, and additional components can also be added as needed. For example, this system can include programming for logging of each belt cleaning per each head, making sander operators’ old manual belt logs obsolete, via electronic-recording of each cleaning of each of the abrasive belts. If this modification is chosen, AbraSand4.0’s data will be available for management review (upon demand) in Excel and many other formats, for any combination of periods, any shifts, any product, and for any combination of sanding heads. This real-time information could be immediately utilized by management to: 1) evaluate the sander operator’s compliance with the abrasive belt cleaning schedule, and abrasive cleaning procedures, but also to 2) evaluate attainment of management goals for extended abrasive life, actual abrasive use, and cost per unit of production. These options could be very cost effective after operational needs are all determined and implemented.

-This technology, which we have since improved, won the Challengers Award, the top award at IWF competition for this patented abrasive belt cleaning technology. The Challengers Award competition is based on technology that 1) is most innovative, 2) provides the most cost-effective economic benefit to the wood manufacturing industry, 3) enhances plant safety, 4) improves the environment, 5) reduces downtime or enhances production, 6) improves quality assurance, and 7) reduces overall energy consumption.

-In addition to winning the Challengers Award, the AWFS Show awarded this technology the Sequoia Award for environmental innovation and leadership in conservation techniques, applications and processes for this patented belt cleaning technology. In addition, this system won three of the four New Product Showcase Awards. Our belt cleaning technology won for Innovative Technology, Ergonomics and Safety.

 Since we have acquired this technology, we have worked to and have succeeded in making the system more industrial, effective, and ergonomic than it was when the awards were won. Several hardware and software enhancements have maximized the functionality and efficiencies of the systems.
