The Wheelabrator Abrasive Developments Vaqua Midi blast cabinet  was specifically designed for production applications where a high work output and optimum performance is required.

This second hand wet blast machine provides component cleaning, degreasing and surface finishing all in one operation. It is less aggressive than a dry blast machine and does not generate any dust so can be used with components made of aluminium and white metals such as titanium and manganese alloys.

The advantages of the wet blast process include:

  • Efficient, economical and dust free methods of metal and composite materials cleaning and finishing
  • Components are cleaned and degreased simultaneously, in one operation
  • Process saves hours of hand cleaning and is achieved by using a slurry of abrasive and water with compressed air being introduced at the process gun to accelerate the blast media
  • High quality results achieved through control of media concentration and automatic top up maintaining optimum working parameters.

Typical applications for wet blasting machines include:

  • Descaling
  • Delicate de-flashing of thermoplastics and composite materials
  • Rust removal and cleaning to surgical standards
  • Micro deburring
  • Removal of surface coatings
  • Preparation for painting, bonding and plating
  • Repair of and re-manufactured components
  • Peening
  • Cosmetic finishing
  • Nuclear decontamination
  • Mould and die cleaning

The unique design of the Wheelabrator wet blast cabinets not only offers a low maintenance solution too any rusting with it's reinforced GRP construction but is further enhanced by the incorporation of sacrificial abrasive resistant blast sheets which provide a long service life and high resistance to structural wear from the abrasive nature of the blasting process...

  • Dual side entry doors with safety interlocks
  • 5.5kW dual speed PU lined pump.
