Industrial finishing equipment manufacturer Guyson International, Skipton, UK, has installed four Guyson Euroblast 8 pressure feed, blast finishing systems complete with side loading turntables, at Materials Solutions’ facility in Worcester, Worcestershire, UK, which opened in September 2018.

Guyson states that the installation of the blast systems has been designed so that each system practically mirrors itself, with operators working back to back in a compact and organised space and with dust collectors and cyclone reclamators on a common side of the installation.

The Guyson Euroblast 8 blast cabinet was reportedly chosen as it offers a range of component access options, including front, front top and side opening doors and providing internal blast chamber dimensions of 1050 mm (w) x 1050 mm (d) x 880 mm (h). According to the company, the blast system also features a blast media delivery/extraction system comprising of a Guyson model CY600/12 Cyclone Reclamator, G55 Pressure Pot and C800 Dust Collector.

“Materials Solutions has been using Guyson blasters since our origin and when it came to upgrade and update it made perfect sense to us to go back to Guyson,” stated Phil Hatherley, General Manager, Materials Solutions. “We have increased size capability plus capacity and working with our team, Guyson have provided us with a quality solution for blasting the larger components that our customers are now looking for us to supply.”
