  • “Quite frankly, the Aquablast system has changed our industry. What was once accepted as parts being painted to freshen the look of soft, nonferrous materials, now the materials can be restored to like-new look without the use of paint. Vixen has restored my faith in customer service! ”

  • “Rick’s service on the phone and when I visited his shop was outstanding. If anyone is thinking of purchasing a blasting cabinet, I would highly recommend Vixen. I almost paid for a lesser inexpensive brand but once I had a go of the Aquablast 1215 machine I knew which one I needed.”

  • “The 915 is at a great price point to enter the production processing of parts that require wet blasting. While ours is an entry level model, we are able to handle a large variety of tool sizes and shapes because of the simple yet flexible design, and still benefit from the core technology without a huge investment. The 915 is perfect for our current product portfolio."

  • I contacted three companies to discuss their products and Vixen stood head-and-shoulders over the rest. They are well known for their product, service, and fair pricing. We’ve had our Vixen Aquablast machine for five months and it has exceeded our expectations. Nearly every part goes into the machine prior to going on the car."

  • This vapor blasting process is much faster than dry bead blasting and leaves a finer surface finish. The support from Vixen was especially helpful when learning how to use the machine to its best ability, and in the operation of the blaster with regards to abrasives and air pressures to use for different materials.”

  • “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 wet blasted a few parts in the Vixen Aquablast 915 and I was hooked, it was fast and left an amazing finish. I ordered one right away! You can count on Rick to answer the phone anytime, even weekends! He has been a great support for us.”

  • “Our new Aquablast 915 doesn’t tumble the parts that we need finishing – meaning that they are not damaged in any way. As well as performing fantastically, the machine looks great too. It’s far more modern and advanced than anything we have used before."

  • "I purchased the Aquablast 1215 which is the perfect size for the larger parts that we do here. It seems as though I find something new to wet blast every day. We do "high-end" work here and that's what our customers expect. What a great addition the Vixen wet blast has been for us. Thank you!"

  • With the Vixen Aqua Wheelblaster we have dropped the average time to five to ten minutes per wheel. Because the machine is unfazed by the design and style of the wheel, we can be sure that all areas have been reached and that the new profile is consistent throughout."

  • "I struggled for years trying to find the best way to refinish the aluminium engine and chassis components on my restoration projects. When I found a shop that was using Vixen to refinish aluminium and saw first - hand the results, I knew I would own one before long. The best part of doing this work is hearing my customers' reaction when they unwrap their parts. The word I hear most often is simply "Wow!"

  • “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!”

  • Short Block Charlie's -precision machining for motorcycles

    “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.”

  • “They are up-and-running and love the machine! The unit looks fantastic after blasting/cleaning but the biggest time saver is that they don’t have to fully clean the oil and scum off before going into the Aquablast. The closed-lopp rinse with the timer adjustments you made, seems to be carrying out the scum and filtering it just fine. I’ll be stopping in there on a regular basis to stay on top of the purchase of the other four machines stated for 2020. Thanks for all your help!”
