Wheelabrator WTB Tumblast Type blast machines provide total flexibility in your shot blast operations. Whether you are cleaning welded structures and fabrications, cleaning and deburring castings, or shot peening dynamically stressed components, the range of applications is almost endless. 


• Removal of mill and forge scale as well as rust
• Removal of burrs and scales
• Removal of moulding sand
• Increase of surface roughness
• Shot peening to increase fatigue strength

Applications include blast cleaning welded steel fabrications, deburring and homogenising diecast parts, and peening dynamically stressed components. Batches of small components or singular large, heavy workpieces can be treated. This flexibility is achieved by several special features:

WTB Tumblast machine

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

For small to medium sized and irregular shaped components with efficient and consistent treatment of the components surface.


  • 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
  • Reversable belt for easy unloading, delivering the components into an awaiting receptacle.  


  • 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 all faces of the components are continually exposed to the blast stream, regardless of size and shape. 

 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.

Benefits of the WTB 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
  • Dust Collector for the removal of dust from the system


  • Max recommended load volume, 80 dm
  • Max work load, 250kg
  • Max single workpiece, 5kg
  • Max single dimension, 250mm
  • Total shot application, 120kg/min
