Sweep-out Frame Materials
Pyrotek offers three different options of materials used for sweep-out baskets:
Specially-Treated Aerospace Aluminum
Lightweight frame extends life of sweep-out mechanism and components, while providing smoother operation. Strong joints at bends and welds reduce the chance of mechanical failures at stress points to provide longer life.
High Strength Aluminum
Provides some flexibility after forming to accommodate bending or twisting without breakage.
The heaviest material option, hot-rolled steel provides the highest strength and temperature resistance. Recommended for use in only the most severe opearing conditions due to increased wear on sweep-out mechanism and components. This material is hardened to prevent bending.
