Case study overview

Sydney Hydro Blasting, based in Australia, started their side-line business venture around one year ago. Since then the company has had a rapid growth, through only a small amount of advertising and word of mouth. Using the Aquablast 1215 they have cleaned a wide range of automotive items, such as vintage Porsche engine components and more recently, motorcycle parts. Sydney Hydro Blasting have also received other interesting requests, such as cleaning the equipment that is used in Dental Laboratories, paint stripping etc. and the most interesting being a local artist, Propellart, who required the Aquablast machine for different finishes on vintage aerospace parts to create sculptures and furniture. 


The Aquablast machines are a range of Wetblasting cabinets designed and manufactured in the UK. With 25+ years of machine design and innovation in the surface cleaning industry, the Vixen Aquablast is designed specifically to cater to a wide range of needs, producing the best results possible. The cabinets are constructed in 100% stainless steel and fully electro statically powder coated for durability, other features of the Aquablast include a large viewing window and internal LED lighting for greater visibility, a lightweight blast gun which is made from polyurethane to ensure minimal replacements are necessary, and many more qualities which make the process easier and safer for the operator.

Here is what Nick had to say about his Aquablast cabinet:

“Vixens machines are of no comparison to the locally offered machines which are Chinese built and sold as Australian! The Vixen staff have been lovely to deal with and I have no doubt that I have made the right decision ordering from them.”
