The Tilghman T85 is a flexible, solution to batch cleaning and surface preparation of tumble-proof components offering a full 360° blast finish coverage. 


  • Compact design, simple operating principle
  • Forced but gentle turning and tumbling of the parts for all-round shot impingement
  • Targeted high performance shot blasting for specific applications
  • Continuous and thorough shot removal


  • Descaling of forged or heat treated parts
  • Desanding of ferrous and non-ferrous metal castings
  • Deburring of metallic and non-metallic parts
  • Deflashing of die cast parts
  • Contaminant removal

The tumbling action of the belt conveyor ensures that components are continually exposed to the blast stream and completely cleaned. For easy unloading, the belt conveyor is reversed, delivering the components into either a loading skip or stillage.

Optimised shot blast effect

During shot blasting, the workpieces, regardless of size and shape, are evenly and continuously tumbled. This is necessary for the effective and uniform treatment of all surface faces. 

  • During tumbling, the workpieces continually undergo shot removal, enabling workpiece interiors and cavities to be perfectly cleaned
  • For the complete removal of all shot, the final tumbling time that follows the shot blast sequence can be regulated to suit the type of workpieces being blast cleaned
  • The tightly sealed, leak-proof blast chamber minimises shot consumption

Bennifits of the barrel-type shot blast machines design are :

  • Rubber belt conveyor to protect the work
  • “Plug and play“ characteristics, i.e. the machines can be installed and put into operation in the shortest possible time 
  • Space-saving, ergonomic design
  • Distortion-resistant rigid housing
  • Process-appropriate blast chamber shielded with large, smooth, and highly wear resistant liners especially designed to withstand abrasion by shot impact
  • Pneumatic / magnetic separation system for cleaning the shot
  • "PATROPAC" Dust Collector, Dust removal system
