Reliable Process Technology Coupled with a High Degree
Design and Sequence of Operation
The loading device delivers the workpieces to the trough-shaped shot blast chamber consisting of a continuous rubber conveyor belt or a steel apron conveyor and adjustable lateral disks. Shot, burrs, flashes or scale and sand deposits are removed by the lower vibrating deck before the separator (optional on smaller machines).
Belt speeds can be adapted to the tumbling behaviour of the workpieces, allowing for individual dwell times during the blasting sequence. With the belt running in the reverse direction, the workpieces are unloaded from the machine to be placed in containers or on conveyor belts. Loading / unloading is aligned with production requirements: Manual, mechanic or automatic loading allows integration of Wheelabrator tumblast machines in continuous production sequences.

Steel or Rubber Belt
Larger machines – MB500S up to MB 1200S - used for blast cleaning heavy parts, are equipped with a steel belt or with special Mn wear resistant slats for heavy duty or specific requirements and for outstanding lifetime requirements.
Wheelabrator offers a full range of tumblast machines with both rubber and steel belts for a variety of applications and processes. Other models and sizes are available upon request.
The blast wheel is the heart of the blasting machine, as the choice of blast wheel determines the power output and the economics.
This machine is fitted with TITAN shot blast wheels as standard. The TITAN wheel offers excellent blasting performance and unbeatable service life for the main blast components, which are made from hardened tool steel.
The TITAN offers even more wall strength through its wear lining, which creates an airtight and completely insulated housing as well as easing maintenance and repairs. There is a full range of variations and sizes available to ensure the chosen wheel is specific to the job in hand.
