wet blast cabinet / automatic / stainless steel
Front Loading Tumbler
VIXEN SURFACE TREATMENTS’ FRONT LOADING AQUABLAST TUMBLER MACHINE IS DESIGNED TO FINISH BATCHES OF COMPONENTS THROUGH AN AUTOMATIC WETBLAST PROCESS. AUTOMATIC WET BLASTING MACHINES CAN FREE UP TIME FOR CUSTOMERS AND HELP IMPROVE EFFICIENCY.
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.
The Aquablast/wetblast 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.
