Tumble Blast Systems

Gibson Tumble Blast systems utilize a continuous rubber belt with tumbling ridges that gently tumble the batch of parts to mix and expose them to the blast for consistent blast coverage of the entire batch.

Gibson offers many standard size tumble blast options.

The tumble blast systems can be operated manually, semi-automated, or even fully automated due to the integration of loading/unloading hoists and conveyors.
• Can run large batches of smaller parts all together.
• No manual flipping or rotating
• Blasting on all sides if parts tumble properly.
Batches of parts that can tumble on top of each other without causing damage to the parts.

Properly sizing your tumble blast system is key to your success. The natural inclination is to oversize the system, but in some cases, bigger is not always better! The volume of your typical container or batch should be utilized when sizing your tumble blast system. Utilizing a tumble blast system closest to your typical batch size will maximize equipment efficiency and life. Correct sizing helps maintain the proper level for optimum mix and exposure to the blast by consistently maintaining the correct distance from the blast wheel while always keeping the workpieces within the blast pattern. The parts also mix better for less potential part to part damage. The machine itself is also shielded from the blast pattern if the parts being blasted are at the proper level in a properly sized machine.
