Aquablaster
Aquablaster

Aquablaster is a firm part of the future of surface preparation.
It's the most efficient and environmentally friendly low volume wet abrasive blasting available today for dust-free cleaning of steel, concrete, fibreglass or wood.


Aquablaster is infinitely controllable and can rapidly produce an SA3 preparation standard on steel as easily as it can massage dirt and contamination from 500 year old oak beams.


In the fight against graffiti it's unbeatable

Runs hours on a single fill

 

Nozzles and hoses last thousands of hours

 


  Aquablaster

The highly efficient pressurised wet abrasive system makes the use of garnet, olivine, recycled glass and other special abrasives commonplace. Cost per square metre is invariably lower with Aquablaster than conventional open dry and dusty grit blasting.

Aquablast has developed four versions of Aquablaster - 100 litre; 200 litre and 600 litre and a 1000 litre unit is available for long hours of duty in ship repair yards.

Linked to an Aquablast UHP source via Aquablast's unique 'Superstripper' tool, blasting performance jumps by nearly 50% -- a spectacular improvement to hand-held blasting performance.

The system runs without re-filling for hours - and hours. Abrasive consumption is so miserly that you will be amazed how low your consumables expenses are. There is virtually negligible wear on hoses and nozzles because the abrasive is water-lubricated and delivered so smoothly to the tungsten carbide nozzle.

Aquablaster is no ordinary blasting pot - the pressure vessel is charged with water, not compressed air and the abrasive / water mix can be finely metered to suit virtually any blasting application. When the wet abrasive particles enter a compressed air stream they fly faster and smoother than any dry blasting system, impacting the target in a uniformly dispersed, high velocity pattern. The result is far more efficient use of the abrasive blast media and consequently higher production rates.

The real pay-off is that Aquablaster consequently makes the use of more expensive abrasives cost-effective. For steel surface preparation, almandite garnet is highly efficient, demonstrating consumption rates of around 15 Kgs / sq. mtr compared to 40-45 Kgs / sq. mtr for an equivalent open dry air blasting system. Garnet can, in addition, be recycled and this contributes even greater savings.

Look at further information on Superstripper to see what Aquablaster boosted by UHP water can achieve.

Typical nozzle sizes for Aquablaster are 5/16 inch; 3/8 inch (9mm) and inch (13mm). For delicate work the smaller-diameter nozzles can perform the most delicate work -- there is almost infinite adjustment available between the vessel water pressure and the compressed air flow. Sensitive materials like old timbers or wooden furniture can have paint or varnish skilfully massaged away to expose the original wood in almost pristine condition. Compressed air from about 200 cfm - 375 cfm is required (5.5 m3/min to 10.5 m3/min) at 7-10 bar depending on the blast nozzle orifice selected.

Aquablaster is in widespread use in the leisure craft industry where GRP (glass-re-inforced plastic) hulls can, with practice, be prepared for re-coating to very high standards.

Abrasives such as olivine, crushed waste glass, calcium carbonate and many other materials heavier than water can be used to great effect.

Stone and brick can be brought back to near original condition. The absence of chemicals and dust make the system highly attractive from an environmental standpoint, particularly so in heavily built-up areas with narrow streets where the problems associated with chemical or dry abrasive cleaning become insurmountable.

Behind sheeted-in scaffolding, passers-by are often barely aware that Aquablaster is restoring a building to its original appearance. Even without sheeting, the wetted abrasive is down to ground within 3-5 metres and materials like olivine, which is a pale green in colour, create only a light dusting of non-toxic sand.

The system has proved particularly effective for removing thermoplastic white lining from road surfaces largely replacing the traditional method of burning this material off. By-products from burning are therefore totally eliminated.

Aquablaster can deal with most forms of graffiti swiftly and cleanly without the use of chemicals.

The extremely low abrasive consumption combined with the absence of dust means the work can be carried out in an environmentally compliant way with the minimum of cleaning up.

Warning
Such is the success of Aquablaster it has been featured on television, advertised and poorly copied by contractors some of whom even claimed to have invented the system. Fraudulent 'franchises' for Aquablaster under different names with promises of 'exclusive territories' have been sold and patent numbers are being quoted in connection with the system which do not relate to the method of operation. Claims have been made that only special abrasives such as 'volcanic sand' available from 'sole suppliers' can be used in Aquablaster and copies of Aquablaster or that heated water is required. Any abrasive material heavier than water can be loaded into Aquablaster and the temperature of the water has virtually no effect on the vast majority of surface preparation tasks. It should also be noted that Aquablaster can be powered by any suitable independent compressed air source. It is, however, available from Aquablast mounted on a trailer with an integrated compressor as a standard option. Four different Aquablaster sizes (100; 200; 600 and 1000 litre) are available together with three different nozzle sizes. Always contact Aquablast directly for your genuine Aquablaster at a genuine price and be assured of experienced technical support direct from the manufacturers.
