What The Customer Says: 

“The machine’s capability is now the main focus of the business. Before we invested in Vixen’s Aquablast machine we used to finish the components using hard labour and elbow grease, whereas now, the absolute ease of use of this machine saves so much time during the process.”

                       

The Aqua Blast Shop have recently purchased an Aquablast 915wet abrasive blasting cabinet from Vixen, to remove heavy oxidization and grime specifically from engines, wheels and carburetors.

The Aqua Blast Shop is a restoration business based in Queensland, Australia, which specialise in blasting a variety of motor parts. It is essential that a lustre finish is created in order to make the restored parts look new and appealing.

Manually operated, the Aquablast 915 is the smallest of Vixen’s standard wet blast models and is particularly effective for creating a satin finish on stainless steel along with a wide range of other metals. The Aquablast range is designed to simultaneously blast and degrease components in a quick and easy dust-free process, which achieves outstanding finishing results on a variety of components. 

The key to Vixen’s wetblasting technology is that the finish is produced through flow of water borne abrasive and not by media impact. This helps to create a finer finish due to the lubrication and flushing action of the water during the process. Vixen’s wet blasting process eliminates media impregnation into the component, and as a result, is vastly becoming a popular choice for companies across the world.

Peter Berendt, managing director of the Aqua Blast Shop, said: “The machines capability is now the main focus of the business. Before we invested in Vixen’s Aquablast machine we used to finish the components using hard labour and elbow grease, whereas now, the absolute ease of this machine saves so much time during the process.”

The Aqua Blast Shop uses a medium spherical bead blast media, purchased from Vixen, to achieve a superior finish to their components and parts which is fundamental for their customers.
