- What is Vapor Blasting?
- Used equipment
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.
