In the wet blasting process a water-abrasive mixture is used to wash away contaminants like grease and oil. In the dry blasting process, these contaminants can cause coagulation of the abrasive and lead to machine failure. The wet method is often used for refurbishing parts such as motor and compressor parts. As with the dry blasting cabinets, similar
work piece handling options can be integrated.
Wet blasting has many advantages over dry blasting. One of the biggest advantages is the reduction of dust. Some abrasives are easily broken down. Water and moisture can trap and reduce the harmful dust particles that have been found to have negative health effects when inhaled. Water also acts as a lubricant or barrier between the abrasive media & components surface protecting the substrate from erosion and distortion normally found in dry blasting environments. Another advantage is that you are able to rinse your surface with water in one step. Also, it leaves a very attractive satin finish on many different substrates like stainless steel, aluminum or brass.
