Horizontal Belt Machines
Mesh Belt Machines are widely used in forges, iron and steel foundries and aluminium foundries for parts that need to be cleaned, but are too large or too sensitive for the Tumblast process. These machines can be easily integrated into an automatic transport system and process large quantities of parts quickly. Wheels from above and below clean the parts as they pass through the machine, meaning the mesh belt itself is a wear part. Wheelabrator therefore only uses very high wear resistant belts made of manganese steel.
Inclined Belt Conveyor (IBC) Machines are used for desanding and descaling of rotation-symmetric iron and steel components, for desanding and deburring of light metal parts or for shot peening of disk or drum shaped workpieces.
In shot blast systems with an endless belt conveyor, rotation-symmetric shock- and vibration-sensitive parts (brake drums, brake disks, wheel rims, etc.) are blast-cleaned in a continuous flow, in a reliable and cost-effective process. The workpieces are individually transported on a belt conveyor and rest on lateral guide skids. Belt drive and frictional drag on the guide skids cause a continuous and adjustable rotation of the parts. All surfaces of the parts and ventilation ducts are selectively blast cleaned.
Inclined Belt Continuous Shot Blast Machine
The Continuous Incline Belt Shot Blast system is an effective solution for blast cleaning brake discs and drums in-line with high production molding equipment. First developed by Wheelabrator in 1988, the Continuous Inclined Belt system has processed millions of automotive and truck brake castings in North American foundries.

Max Mesh Belt
MaxMesh® Belt Blast Systems are fully-automated to provide cost-effective and highly productive solutions to meet a variety of surface preparation requirements. Ideal for blast cleaning small, low profile parts and components such as cut out metal shapes and castings not suitable for conventional roller type conveyor or tumbling barrel style machine. Strategic positioning of the blast wheels provides maximum cleaning coverage to your parts loaded across the conveyor width.
Max Mesh Belt
MeshBlast® systems are designed for cleaning a variety of parts that range from die-cast transmission housing with hard to reach areas to simple workpieces and components. The blast wheels are oriented to achieve maximum surface preparation exposure and coverage over the entire exposed surface of the part.
Mesh Belt Machine
Rust and heat scale removal, deburring of cast flanges, sand removal from oil sumps, improvement of surface roughness and shot peening for fatigue improvements are all typical applications of the Wheelabrator mesh belt machine.
To achieve excellent blast results the 4 or 8 wheels are arranged at horizontal and vertical axes, inclined to face the belt direction. This ensures complete coverage of both flat and complex parts including: gearboxes, gears, gear wheels, diecastings, castings, formed and forged parts.
