Specifications: Blasting widths from 6”- 72” (15.2 cm – 182.8 cm) are available. Stripe Hog models do not come standard with any particular size of spray bars. Please consult your Sales Representative to choose the blasting head(s) that will work best for you.
Marking Removal Bars
6” (15.2 cm)/14 jet: This spray bar is most effective for 4” (10.2 cm) line removal because the jet pattern will be aimed directly on the line with only a 1” (2.5 cm) overlap area on either side, this will also allow the operator to blast off the line with minimal damage and have the best profile on a 4” (10.2 cm) line.
8” (20.3 cm)/13 jet: This is designed for very aggressive or less aggressive removal. This spray bar was created from the 8” x 8” (20.3 cm x 20.3 cm) jet spray bar we had used previously. By adding five more jets it will give you more options because you can plug the 5 added holes or use all thirteen depending on what you are removing. If used with a two-headed Stripe Hog this bar would be placed in front and you would follow with an 8’ (20.3 cm)/16 jet. It is most effective for 6” (15.2 cm) line removal because the jet pattern will be aimed directly on the line with only a 1” overlap area on either side.
8” (20.3 cm)/16 jet: This is the most common used spray bar to remove 6” (15.2 cm) lines because it can be set up to be very aggressive or least aggressive. Either way it will leave the best profile of any of the bars. Using two of these bars with the same set up will give you the best profile unless the material being removed is very thick. This is the same idea as how you would use 80 grit sandpaper first then 220 grit sandpaper later when sanding wood.
10” (25.4 cm)/16 jet: This spray bar is designed to remove 8” (20.3 cm) lines and will use the same configuration as the 8” (20.3 cm)/16 jet bar. It can be set up to be very aggressive or least aggressive. Either way it will leave the best profile of any of the bars. Using two of these bars with the same set up will give you the best profile unless the material being removed is very thick.
14” (35.6 cm)/15 jet: This spray bar is designed to remove large areas of paint, most commonly used on airport runways, taxiways and aprons. There are several different nozzle configurations to fit the removal situation because these bars have a lot of versatility. This style of spray bar is also the preferred choice to use for removing curing compound because you can take up to a 27” (68.6 cm) wide pass up to 150’ (45.7 m) per minute when using two blasting heads.
Rubber Removal Bars
14” (35.6 cm)/30 jet, 22” (55.9 cm)/30 jet and 36” (91.4 cm)/30 jet: These are known as the rubber removal bars. When using these spray bars with the double blasting heads, you will have a 27” (68.6 cm), 42” (106.7 cm) or 70” (177.8 cm) wide pass. This spray bar was designed with 30 jets for a reason, to be the least aggressive spray bar in the inventory. Airport runways are very sensitive because they are designed with grooves in the surface. The grooves create a drainage flow that allows the water to run off the runway so the airplanes will have more friction to slow down when landing. When using the 14” (35.6 cm)/30, 22” (55.9 cm)/30 or 36” (91.4 cm) spray bar with an average pressure of 32K to 36Kpsi (2,206 to 2,482 bar), it will not round the edges of the grooves or polish the surface. These bars are also designed to remove the rubber on top of the paint without removing the paint and will also increase the reflectivity of the beads in the paint. With the proper nozzle configuration and higher pressure, paint can be removed leaving a very smooth profile. Paint removal is not recommended with the 36” (91.4 cm) bars.
