Vapour Blasting Services


Vapour blasting is a process where a slurry (mixture of abrasive media and water) is pumped at very high flow rates to a nozzle. At the nozzle a high volume flow of air is introduced and this propels the slurry mixture onto the component to be cleaned. A multitude of finishes can be produced by using different blast media, slurry flow rates, air flow/pressure, nozzle diameters and distance from the gun.

Vapour blasting has many advantages over conventional sandblasting, some are listed below:

• The slurry acts to wash the parts, rather than abrade the surface
• No media is impregnated into the surface with vapour blasting, critical for cylinder heads and pistons
• The process creates no dust or static build-up
• Our machine filters broken media out so the finish remains consistent as the media wears/breaks down
