Case study overview
What The Customer Says: 

"The wet blasting process applied from the Aquablast 915 is very gentle, very selective and non-damaging, which is very important when treating sometime rare, one-off parts."

                               

Classic Restorer, based in Benoni, South Africa, recently purchased an Aquablast 915 wet abrasive blasting cabinet from Vixen, in order to restore the surfaces of classic car and bike aluminium parts.

Classic Restorer is relatively new to the field of wet blasting technology in South Africa. Once the company becomes established in the niche of services to vintage/ classic market, Classic Restorer want to branch off into car magnesium alloy wheel cleaning services using Vixen’s Aqua Wheel Blaster.

Manually operated, the Aquablast 915 machine 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 process 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.

Janusz Gruszka, sole owner of Classic Restorer, said: “The wet blasting process applied from the Aquablast 915 is very gentle, very selective and non-damaging, which is very important when treating sometime rare, one-off parts. The range of adjustment is very impressive. By simply regulating the air pressure, I’m able to clean Mazac alloy carburetors without removing the patina and on the opposite range – I can remove carbon deposits in two stroke engine head combustion chambers. The machine is very versatile in the way it can be used. I was particularly surprised when I noticed that the wet basting applied by the Aquablast 915 doesn’t remove stamps on aluminium castings, put on in the past during the assembly process! This is how delicate it can be! Also it doesn’t damage threads, they just get cleaned!

I can only commend Debbie for providing all info and for her patience in answering my enquiries and technical questions etc. From there the entire transaction was also swift and efficient.”
