Wheelabrator Vacublast Abrasive Developments Vaqua 92 Manual Wet Blast Machine

The Vaqua wet blast cabinet range has been designed specifically for production applications where a high work output and optimum performance is required.

Former Rolls Royce Machinery

This plant is one of several machines acquired during Rolls Royce's reorganisation of their manufacturing facility at Inchinnan, UK.
Their worldwide reputation for quality is reflected in the machinery and maintenance of their manufacturing plant.
Many of these machines include features that are necessary for the manufacture and servicing of high quality engine components,
but can provide a benefit to any industry.


Constructed in stainless steel, the cabinets offer advanced features to ensure maximum cleaning effect with good visibility and ease of use.

The Wet Blast process provides component cleaning, degreasing, and finishing in one operation. Compared with dry blasting it is less aggressive, does not generate dust, can process components such as titanium without risk of explosion, reduces media consumption, and leaves a cleaner, brighter surface finish.
