- What is Vapor Blasting?
- Used equipment
Vixen is still operating as normal, in compliance with UK Government social distancing guidelines, and we would like to reassure everyone that we are open and responding to enquiries. In the unprecedented situation we all find ourselves in, our thoughts are with the families of those fighting the COVID-19 virus and with front-line health workers around the world.
The Aquablast front loading tumbler operates using a PLC controller. This controller is programmed with the various functions needed to produce a consistent finish on batches of components. Various drum designs are available as well as rinse options. This machine is a great option to free up time for customers and to help improve efficiency.
The Aquablast / vapor blasting principle uses a mixture of abrasive and water that is propelled to the blast gun. This ‘slurry’ is then accelerated using compressed air. When the slurry impacts with components to be cleaned, it can lightly degrease (if an additive is used in the water) and also create a uniform finish on the automatically blasted components.
