Propeller Polishing Machine Definitive Guide

1. What Does A Propeller Polishing Machine Do?

The machine that is capable of cleaning and finishing propellers is called a propeller finishing machine.

It helps to remove the unwanted material deposits in the propeller, thereby helps to increase the efficiency of the propeller.

It helps to smoothen the part surface and also help to define edges of the part through radiusing.

So, the process of deburring and polishing propellers using propeller polishing machines will help to improve the strength and durability of the propellers.


2. What Are The Different Types Of Propeller Polishing Machines?

There are several types of propeller polishing machines in the market.

The two types of propeller polishing machines manufactured by Inovatec is given below.


2.1 Drag Finishing Machine

The drag finishing machine is well known for its processing speed.

It is capable of polishing parts almost 50 times faster than the vibratory finishing machine.

It is very effective for polishing boat propellers.

You can also use it for polishing high value items like golf clubs and medical implants.

This machine is capable of handling complex shapes and geometries.

You can also opt for drag finishing machines for parts that want to avoid part to part contact during the finishing process.



2.2 Wheel Vibratory Finishing Machine

The wheel vibratory finishing machine is more or less similar to the drag finishing machine.

The only difference is that it is not as precise or fast as the drag finishing machine.

But, it is an economical option when compared to the drag finishing machine.

It will cost you only 20 percent of the price of the drag finishing machine.

These machines are available in two variants.



One model comes with the internal separation feature and the other without the separation feature.

The first model is used for medium and big size parts that can be easily collected from the bowl after finishing.

The second model is used for small parts that are tough to collect from the bowl.

So, you have options for all propeller sizes.


3. What Components Are Required For The Polishing of Propellers Using Propeller Polishing Machines?

You need to have the following three things for the polishing of propellers using a propeller polishing machine.


3.1 Machine

The machine consists of the working bowl, other mechanical and electrical parts.

It is the machine that will make the parts tumble with media for finishing.


3.2 Media

Media is an abrasive substance that will rub on the propeller parts to remove the unwanted material deposit from the part surface.

Thus, it is responsible for the cleaning and polishing of the propeller parts.


3.3 Compound

Compounds are substances that are added to the media and parts mixture for finishing.

They are designed for specific purposes.

Some compounds are used to accelerate the grinding process.

Some others are used to bring more shine on the part surface.

There are other compounds that are used for preventing the corrosive action of water on metals during wet tumbling.

Compounds can be used in wet tumbling as well as dry tumbling.


4. Can You Explain The Working Of The Propeller Polishing Machine?

You need to load the propeller machine with parts, media, and compounds.

Once you power on the machine, then the media will start rubbing on the propeller part surface for deburring, degreasing, cleaning, surface smoothening and polishing of parts.

You will get properly finished parts at the end of the process.


5. What Is The Price Of A Propeller Polishing Machine?

The cost of the propeller machine will vary according to the models.

It is dependent on the number of features available in each model.

Machines that can handle complex shapes with high precision will cost more.

The cost of the drag finishing machine will be more than the wheel vibratory finishing machine.


6. What Are The Typical Maintenance Activities Required For The Propeller Polisher Machines?

The time interval for the machine maintenance will depend on your usage of the propeller polishing machines.

You need to ensure that you do a period check every month.

The important maintenance activities that you need to do are listed below.


  • Apply grease on the motor every two weeks. It will depend on your frequency of usage.
  • Maintain Media Level – You must ensure that the media level inside the machine is always maintained at the recommended level. If the level falls short of the minimum recommended value, then it will affect the quality of polishing and can even damage the propeller parts. So, never let the media level go low.
  • Check the drain – If you use small size media, then there is a chance that the media get clogged in the drain. So, it may result in the flooding of the machine. So, always check the drain ensures that there are no blocks in it.
  • The wear and tear of the propeller finishing machine must be checked. The gaps between the machine parts must not get widened.
  • You must ensure that the nuts and bolts of the machine are properly tightened for a smooth operation of the machine.
  • Machine Lining Check – The machine comes with a high quality durable lining. But, when you use the machine many times, the abrasive media may cause some wear and tear to the PU lining. So, you must inspect it regularly to ensure that there is no wear and tear. If some small cracks are there, you can fix it using epoxy glue. Never run the machine with any cracks in the PU lining.


7. Can You Share Some Tips To Increase The Efficiency Of The Propeller Polishing Machine?

You need to read and understand the instruction manual from the manufacturer to have a clear understanding of the operating of the propeller polishing machine.

So, you must be thorough with the operating instructions.

You need to load the machine with the correct part to media ratio for an efficient polishing process.

The ratio will also depend on the accuracy and precision of the polishing requirement.

There will be a minimum load requirement for the machine.

So, ensure that your load on the machine is always above this limit.

You can also use compounds during the tumbling process to get the desire results.


8. What Do You Mean By The Fouling Removal Efficiency Of The Propeller Polishing Machine?

The fouling removal is the propeller polishing process.

The fuel savings are estimated to be around 5 percent.

So, the fouling removal efficiency is high if you consider the saving on the fuel consumption of ships.

In most cases, it will take a time ranging from 10 minutes to a few hours to complete the whole finishing process.

The time will vary with different factors like the type of media, complexity of the part, and surface condition of the propeller.


13. What Should Be The Activities To Be Carried Out On The Machine After The Finishing Process?

There are some activities which you need to do after completing the propeller polishing.

You need to take out the media from the machine and clean it and store it for later use.

The cleaning is necessary to ensure that all the dirt and dust is removed from the media.

The power cord of the machine must be properly checked for any damages or cuts.

In case of any damage, you must replace it immediately.


14. How To Select The Right Tumbling Media?

The choice of media will depend on your part material type.

Ceramic tumbling media and the plastic tumbling media are the two commonly used media for tumbling propeller parts.

The ceramic tumbling is good for heavy grinding as well as for surface smoothening of the parts.

The plastic tumbling media are suitable for soft propeller parts made of aluminum or brass.



15. Is It Possible To Run The Machine With Little Or Without Using Compounds?

It is not mandatory to use compound during the tumbling of propeller parts.

But, using compounds during the tumbling process help to reduce the friction between the parts and the media.

It will also help to reduce the heat generated during the process.

It also helps to do some specific actions like rust inhibition, grinding enhancement, better polishing, etc.

It will help you to reduce the overall finishing time, and thus you will be able to increase the life of the machine.


16. What Are The Different Benefits Of Using This Machine?

The machine will help you to fine tune the surface of the propeller.
