TB-5 Master Tumble Basket Machine

TB-5 Master Tumble Basket
Designed for larger parts that are less densely packed and do not hook together when mixed. Random part mixing eliminates hand eye part processing and does not require an operator. TB-5 Master is for high daily machine duty cycle using larger part loads.

Most applications today using directional blasting cabinets require operator hand held guns for part processing, however, there are some parts that process better and faster using batch loads. This is the function of all tumble basket and tumble barrel models.

The TB-5 Master is a complete machine that includes a 440 sq.ft. dust collector with automatic vibrator cleaning cycle and abrasive separator reclaimer for operation using 0-150 mesh abrasive. It's also available with a pneumatic conveyor for fine abrasive usage. It comes equipped with a removable tumble basket for larger parts that do not fit inside the faster Tumble Barrel model.

Tumble Baskets normally have a removable fixed basket with an open top mounted inside the machine. This type of unit will process larger and longer parts, which the faster tumble barrel machines will not handle. Because of the shape of the parts, the basket operates best when parts are not densely packed. Tumble Basket models are normally less costly than the faster processing barrel machines but it's the part shape and size of the parts that decides which machine is best suited for the application.

The TB-5 Master has a larger cabinet size than the TB-5 model and is built for daily machine operation and larger part loads. It allows for a larger variable speed drive, larger cabinet footprint (36" x 36"), larger basket size (24" diameter) and is built for longer duty cycles.

Technical Information: TB-5 Master
Machine Type: Dry Siphon tumble basket
Compressed Air Usage: 56 cfm @ 100 psi (most tumble machines operate at higher pressure because of the distance of the nozzle to the parts)
Suggested Air Compressor:

TB-5 Master machine normally operates using facility compressed air. Check line pressure making sure it's 100 psi or higher. Lower pressure will work but the loss of frictional heat will increase processing time.

Recommended Abrasive Size: 60 to 150 mesh (pneumatic conveyor option for 150 to 220 mesh abrasive)
Most Used Abrasive Type: Glass Beads, Aluminum Oxide and Silicon Carbide. Due to the distance to parts, the processing pressure is higher than maximum impact velocity.
WARNING: Abrasive Restrictions and Warning
Paint Specification: Environmentally friendly, high-grade polyurethane high gloss paint. Standard colors include MBA beige and high gloss light gray. Custom color matching is available using customer supplied color sample, please call 866-204-7068 for pricing.
