We accept almost any metal components for cleaning. We can fit a six cylinder Rolls-Royce cylinder head and crankshaft in our aqua blaster and we can clean anything from a single cylinder bike engine to a V6 and V8 cylinder block.
Please see our gallery page for good examples of the finish this form of cleaning can achieve.
SHOT / DRY BLAST & DEGREASE
Dry blasting is predominantly used for the removal of rust and paint from harder material such as steel or iron. We use a medium grade aluminium oxide grit blasted with pressurised air. Care must be taken when using this form of blasting as it will abrade the surface of the item being blasted, especially softer metals. However it will remove heavy rust and paint effectively and is very good for castings that are due to be painted.
Before any wet or dry blast process, if necessary, items can be placed in our industrial wash tank for degreasing. This machine contains a powerful degreaser and rust inhibitor and is heated to 70 degrees for effective removal of surface grease and dirt.
