The Wheelabrator M101 shot blast machine offers a low-cost solution to batch clean tumble-proof components in the most efficient and economical way. This shot blaster has additionally been upgraded with Allan Bradley controllers, a Speed invertor, media flow recovery and separation control.


  • 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.
  • Self contained dust removal plant.
  • Self contained sieving and cleaning system.
  • Self contained over size sprue and debris rejection facility.
  • Continuous and thorough shot removal.


  • De-scaling of forged and heat treated parts.
  • De-sanding of ferrous and non-ferrous metal castings.
  • De-burring of metallic and non-metallic parts.
  • De-flashing 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 combined with the fanned pattern of the shot from above, produces total coverage of the blast action upon the parts cleaning all the faces as they are presented to the continuous blasting action.

During tumbling, the parts continually undergo shot removal through the perforated belt, enabling the workpiece interiors and cavities to be perfectly cleaned and left free from shot in any entrapment areas. 

The benefits of the barrel-type shot blast machine 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.
  • Modular design allows for optional equipment to be retrofitted or exchanged to accommodate production changes.
  • Automatic separation of both dust and waste products.
  • Integral dust removal system.
