Titan Surface Treatments located in Beaver Pennsylvania, USA are making great strides with their Vixen Aquablast machine.
Tom from Titan purchased an Aquablast 1215 to promote a ‘green method’ of cleaning and degreasing. As the Aquablast range uses water mixed with abrasive to blast and degreases parts, no solvent is needed which is what Tom wanted to move away from.
The Vixen Aquablast range is designed to simultaneously blast and degrease components in a quick and easy dust-free process.
This machine creates an outstanding finish on a variety of parts which is produced through the flow of water-borne abrasive. A finer finish is achieved due to the lubrication and flushing action of the water during the blasting process.
“Our hope is to sell this equipment to local injection moulders who are currently using solvents and ultrasonic cleaning fluids. Our thrust in the industry is to promote a “Green” method of cleaning and degreasing, without the use of solvents.”
At the moment Titan Surface Treatments has been focusing on cleaning moulds and Knives for trimming and cleaning.
After seeing the benefits first hand, Tom has now teamed up with one of our distributors over in the states to sell Vixen machines, as he realized how much of a benefit this could be to a variety of industries. Tom had dealt with Rick from Wetblasting.com when purchasing his machine and has stayed in contact ever since.
Tom also said:
“We’ve had great success with the Aquablast 1215 machine and are really pleased with the results.”
