Quantum Blast Technologies, the leaders in portable wet abrasive blasting equipment now introduce the VAPR-Blast range of Wet Blast cabinets.

The VAPR-Blast Wet Blast Cabinet is a premium commercial grade machine that combines abrasive media, water and compressed air to achieve superior finishes on parts of different shapes and sizes.

 

Wet Blast Advantages

Dry Blasting may cause an aggressive or uneven impact on the substrate and ricocheting of the abrasive media Vapour Blasting provides cushioning with water. Media flows along the surface rather than concentrating on one point

As opposed to dry blasters, the VAPR-Blast Wet Cabinet uses the vapour blasting method to encapsulate abrasive particles in fine droplets of water. This has several advantages:

  • The additional element of water provides a much smoother flow, less ricocheting of the abrasive and protects the surface.
  • Different abrasives can provide different finishes as required. Glass or plastic beads can provide a polished finish whereas garnet can provide a cutting effect for a matt finish.
  • Fragmentation is reduced by the film of water
  • The risk of abrasive impregnation is minimal. The resulting finish is much cleaner for further processes such as painting, plating or coating.
  • The abrasive action is more consistent across the entire surface
  • Dust is trapped and contained by the water.

Fine-Tuned Control

The VAPR-Blast Wet Blast Cabinet is designed to be adaptable for different surfaces and finishes. The supply of abrasive, water and air can be finely adjusted to match the surface you are blasting.

The VAPR-Blast Wet Blast Cabinet is a true multi-media blaster. It can work with a range of abrasive media such as garnet, aluminium oxide, glass beads, plastic beads etc. in a range of mesh sizes depending on the surface and profile desired.

Flexibility and precise control in VAPR-Blast is part of the RapidBlast DNA. High quality valves, precise gauges and a carefully designed network of hoses, connections and valves provides superb performance and consistency.

Low Maintenance

Our Wet Blast Cabinet features a seal-less slurry pump which provides efficient flow and long durability. It doesn’t require pre-cleaning and has a very low abrasive impregnation risk.

In addition, the closed loop system of a wet blasting cabinet means lower running costs. It reduces the amount of media you need to buy and clean from the system. This makes the system both environmentally friendly and long-lasting.
