Industrial applications

Customer Testimonials

Vixen has sold many Aquablast machines for reconditioning markets, such as vacuum pump or car and motorcycle engine components such as a turbo or carburettor. The benefits are that components can be blasted without needing degreasing and leave the ultimate finish to present your remanufactured products.

Testimonials

“This is one process that really lives up to the promise of a great finish. I have never seen aluminum cleaned like this system does. The transformation of dull grey aluminium to what appears like a finely painted silver is amazing. It does it on rough castings and die cast work alike. This is a restorers and metal finishers dream machine.

The Aquablast 915 is built like a tank and has great features that make it very comfortable to operate. We really like the mounted blast gun option. It makes handling the parts much less cumbersome. We love the closed loop rinse option as well. You can never get all the crud off of parts like cylinder heads. We just degrease and put them in the Vixen Aquablast. Thanks Rick for the great equipment!”

“I use the Aquablast 915 to refinish my 1972 Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850 engine cases, heads, carburettor bodies and transmission case. The results are astonishing.

I have used glass bead blasting, acid wash and many other refinishing techniques on various projects but it leaves too much ‘tooth’ in the finish, or does not look correct. The ‘peened’ finish that is possible using Vixen’s wet blasting process is different to anything I have ever seen in all of the years I have been working on and restoring motorcycles. The finished parts are beautiful.

The other huge benefit of Vixen’s wet blasting process is speed. This process is ‘industrial grade’ and it is very fast and easy to use.

Vixen have thought of everything with this machine. The window washing / wiping system is excellent and the opening allows you to place and re-surface large or small parts with such ease.

Rick at Wet Blasting is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I really like the Vixen Aquablast, and recommend these machines to anyone who needs to do high quality refinishing efficiently.

These machines are just excellent!”

“I have owned one of Vixen’s Aquablast 915 blasting cabinets for over a year and a half. It is one of the best investments I have made. I see there are cheaper models out there, but you get what you pay for. We offer vapor blasting to the motorcycle industry and it is always interesting to have a customer pick up their parts when we are finished with the work. The first comment is that it looks better than new and because of this we were able to raise our prices. We have a YouTube video showing the Vixen in action. It took time to promote our service, but now we have raised the bar, to be the industry standard thanks to the Aquablast.”
