Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, but we would not advise it! High pressure water and air will force the media in through the smallest of spaces particularly seals. Once inside the engine it will eventually destroy bearings, block oil galleries and rapidly wear our gears. Other companies may not tell you this!
Yes, but it will still get inside and work its way into the galleries. The best way is to completely dismantle the carburettor and then clean out the galleries after blasting.
No, vapour blasting is unlike dry blasting its more of a polishing or lapping process and could be described a burnishing. The water acts as a lubricant and alters the angle in which the media strikes the surface reducing the impact and material removal.
Most parts we will endeavor to turnaround within 5 – 10 working days.
In some cases we may be able to do them while you wait by prior appointment.
If the material is scratched dented or damaged vapour blasting will not cover it up, it will only put a uniform finish onto the surface. If you want all the marks removed we can polish it before blasting and it will give you a perfect result!
Dismantle the parts as far as you can and remove any paint or grease. If you can’t we can do it for you. But it may add to the cost?
We accept work by mail order from across the UK and Europe. Once we receive it we will contact you and confirm price and delivery. Upon completion we return you parts by Fedex.
Aqua blasting and vapour blasting is the same thing. Bead blasting is a dry process and more aggressive than vapour blasting.
They are two different processes vapour blasting fires water and glass bead at the surface while ultra-sonic cleaning fires shock waves and detergent at the surface.
