Low Vibration Series of Needle Scalers

CS Unitec has introduced a line of low-vibration needle scalers designed for all surfaces - metal and masonry - to remove coatings, corrosion and other accumulated materials. These tools are suitable for irregular surfaces that are otherwise difficult to prepare. "The Trelawny Vibro-Lo VL Series of scalers are designed to be lightweight, easy-to-handle pneumatic units that provide up to 3,000 blows per minute with 1/7 the vibration of traditional needle scalers," said a company spokesperson.

The tools utilize the internal air pressure to absorb the recoil and impact from the anvil and needles. "The lower operation reduces operator fatigue, increases efficiency and helps to prevent injury," said the spokesperson. An optional dust shroud maintains worksite / environment cleanliness when the tool is attached to a vacuum system.

Other applications include cleaning and stress relieving weld seams and steel joints.

The Vibro-Lo VL Series includes three models: The VL223 inline model is equipped with 19 needles. Models VL203 and VL303 are designed with a pistol grip and have 19 and 28 needles, respectively. Changing needles requires no additional tools.

Needle tip variations include chisel or flat tips for light surface marking and pointed needles for very hard scale removal. Stainless steel needles are offered for applications where corrosion or humidity presents a problem. Non-sparking copper beryllium needles are available for use in potentially hazardous environments. The scalers operate at only 5.5 CFM of air with vibration levels up to 2.3 Aeq m/s2.
