In the spray gun, the compressed air accelerates the grinding fluid entering it, and is ejected through the nozzle. The air then sprays onto the surface so that it can be processed as planned.

In the vapour sandblasting machine, the grinding fluid pump is used for feeding and the compressed air is used for accelerating.

Wet vapor blasting machine s

The vapor blasting machine feeds the grinding fluid using the pump dedicated to this function. Once it is fed, the same pump mixes it evenly using water and abrasive. Then this mixed fluid is sent to the spray gun through that pump.

On the other hand, compressed air enters the spray gun through the air pipe in order to accelerate the grinding fluid.

 

Wet Blasting machine with Turntable Trolleys

If the workpiece is large, it is recommended to use a turntable for easy operation. The load of the turntable is generally 60-200kg, but it can be customized according to customer needs.

For the heavy workpieces, it is recommended to use a cart for easy loading and unloading, which can further be divided into manual cart and electric trolley.

Optional Design & Setting

The gun frame is set in the chamber, and the spray gun can be placed on the gun frame during sandblasting, which is convenient for the customer to operate.

The hydro cyclone is designed to separate water from the blasting media at around 90%. It is ideal to use while emptying the machine or changing abrasives.

The “closed loop” setting implies that the machine will not require a drain nearby and will not consume large amounts of water. The basis for a closed-loop system is a large filter unit (similar to that shown above). It filters the liquid well enough to be used for the rinse gun and the window wash.

Sand Blasting Media

Glass beads are a unique but widely used pneumatic sandblasting abrasive, used in cleaning, processing or metal surface sandblasting and other fields.

Glass beads are made from highly compressed and graded glass fragments.

First, the glass fragments are melted into a spherical shape and then cooled down to balance its internal pressure and bending resistance. These pure and transparent spheres do not have any embedded particle, purification, stain or other damage to the surface after treatment.

According to the selected size and operating parameters, glass beads will produce a variety of gloss on the surface of the workpiece, from rough to silky. The use of glass bead blasting or spraying can also easily generate decorative effects or similar special effects ensuring excellent performance.

Even when the precision of the workpiece is cleaned or deburred, the surface of the workpiece will not be damaged and the original accuracy of the workpiece will be maintained. Moreover, the inherent strength of the glass bead allows it to withstand multiple impacts and perform cyclic sandblasting operations.

Glass beads are widely used to treat the surface of workpieces with residual tension or to produce a compressive stress layer under periodic pressure. This helps them to achieve the purpose of surface strengthening. The use of glass beads to strengthen the workpiece surface can reduce potential hazards such as surface erosion or surface fatigue.

The chemical nature of glass beads is non-toxic and will not leave iron or other harmful substances on the workpiece surface while in use, nor will it adversely affect the surrounding environment.

27.1  Clean the rough surface of precision castings

Vapour blasting is used to clean the scale and residual on the surface of precision castings, especially for the cleaning and polishing of precision castings with complex shapes and no margin.

It is the most economical and effective process.

At the same time, it can play a polishing role and improve the surface finish of castings

For example: aero-engine turbine blades, surgical instruments, jewelry, etc.

The use of vapor blasting to clean the die-casting parts can expose the parts to the same metallic color and make them more beautiful.

If the vapor sand peening effect is better, the surface hardness and corrosion resistance of the parts can also be improved.

Such as: various instrument shells, frames, jewelry, etc.

For sand casting aluminum, copper and other metals, the use of vapor blasting can also achieve a higher surface quality thus saving many intermediate process links.
