This process is not as harsh as dry blasting so can be used on delicate items such as carburettors. Aqua blasting is suitable for all non ferrous metals including aluminium, magnesium, titanium, brass, copper and stainless steel. Here at Performance Head Engineering we offer a multi stage process. Parts are firstly placed in the hot wash cleaning machine to thoroughly clean and degrease before secondly chemically removing any paint or laquer. The parts are then vapour blasted before having a final rinse clean and dry.
Aqua blasting achieves this by accelerating water and a mildly abrasive emulsion under high pressure through a nozzle. The water in this process acts as a buffer, while the emulsion gently removes the grime, leaving the underlying surface intact.
The emulsion contains particles which are just 150-200 microns in diameter, these gently remove the contaminates on the surface of the component.
We specialise in cleaning car and bike parts as well as metal antiques, however, we are more than happy to provide a quote for any metal components or objects you need cleaning.
Almost any metal can be cleaned using aqua blasting including aluminium, bronze, magnesium, titanium, brass, copper, etc.
All items are treated with great care whilst in our posession. Once the cleaning process is complete they are securely packaged and returned to you using a postal service of your choice.
