“Everything Is Bigger In Texas”
Did you know? Wetblasting is commonly known as vapor blasting, slurry machine blasting and liquid honing.
At Wetblasting.com we’ve been serving the great state of Texas since 1983, when Rick made his first trip to visit Texas Instruments and has never looked back!
Made To Last
We proudly build and support a line of wetblast equipment that is second to none. The Aquablast range is designed and built to take the abuse that you will experience when blasting with even the most aggressive medias. Some manufactures can give you the finish results in the beginning, but you get what you pay for! Vixen is tried-and true for the long haul.
Productive Slurry Pump
The heart of the vapor blast/wet blast machine is the pump. An off-the-shelf pump just isn’t designed to be used in this punishing environment. The Vixen pump is what I call a “true” slurry pump. That is, designed and built from the ground up to handle the abusive slurry flow. Vixen has gone even a step further by eliminating seals that surely wear out and leak. Vixen also made inspection and service easy by using a four-bolt pump mount and electrical plug disconnect. You can have the pump out and on a bench for inspection in less than 10 minutes.
Our machines have our unique industrial pump designed and built by us for the Aquablast machines…. Watch out for those companies who don’t show you their pumps….. ask to see the pump and parts before you buy.
100% Quality Stainless Steel Machines
Another major thing to look for is the wetblast cabinet itself. Heavy gage stainless steel is the only material used to consider a machine acceptable for industrial use and long service life. Other materials will bring the initial cost down but you will surely pay in the long run. Vixen still supports customers with Aquablast machines that have been in service for 20 plus years.
Vixen is proudly made in the United Kingdom. They are known for taking pride in their craftsmanship and attention to detail at Vixen. I have been to the factory three times and witnessed this myself. I will do all I can to get you into one of our installations to see this for yourself. You’ll be amazed at the quality and wonder why there is still a cost savings of 30% or more over our competition. They just know vapor blast wetblast over there! I’m staking, without reservation, my 37 year reputation on it.
