Smart Alloy Wheel Repair
AQUABLAST SURFACE TREATMENTS HAS DESIGNED A REVOLUTIONARY NEW WETBLASTING MACHINE SPECIFICALLY FOR SMART ALLOY WHEEL REPAIRS – THE AQUA WHEELBLASTER.
The Aqua Wheelblaster finishes and provides a key for alloy wheels, specifically after kerb damage repairs. The process uses an abrasive mixed with water into slurry to blast off the alloy and provide an ideal surface for the paint and lacquer to adhere to in the next stage of the repair process.The wheel is raised to the opening of the cabinet via the pneumatic lift (optional). It's then loaded onto the internal spigot, which is mounted on a pivoting arm to allow for hassle-free loading and handling during blasting. Once loaded, the operator applies pressure to a foot pedal, which delivers the water/media slurry contained in the cabinet sump to the manual blast nozzle via a glandless polyurethane pump. Compressed air is added to accelerate the slurry. After contact with the alloy, the slurry drains into the cabinet sump creating a re-circulation system, other contaminants being fed into a sedimentation filter. The alloy obtains a finish usually associated with a 60/80 grade sandpaper.
