A guide to Wet Blasting Equipment

Wet blasting, also known as wet abrasive blasting or slurry blasting, is a cleaning method that combines grit blasting materials with water to clean and descale a variety of surfaces.

Different materials can be used in the wet blasting process to achieve the best results on different things, for example fine grits are useful for descaling a surface that is being prepped for a new coating, while angular grit is a more aggressive substance that can be used to blast clean hardened surfaces – for example particularly rusty or grease-laden products.

The use of water in wet blasting helps to cushion the impact of abrasive materials, preventing them from becoming embedded in a blasted surface. This can slow the breakdown rates of whatever you happen to be working on, when compared with traditional dry blasting methods. Wet blasting achieves high levels of cleanliness compared with sand or grit blasting, and can make coating or bonding materials post-blast much more effective.

We can offer wet blasting equipment designed to degrease and blast many sizes of components, using compressed air and a water and grit slurry. After contact with your component, the slurry drains through a re-circulating system, with contaminants fed into a sedimentation filter to keep them at bay.

As well as wet blast cabinets, we can also offer multi-function wash plants, screw washers, tunnel wash systems and a range of other wet cleaning equipment to meet your needs.
