Vapour blasting is a process similar to sand or bead blasting, yet, in which the media is suspended in water. The water prevents dust accumulating and provides a cushioning effect to prolong the life of the media and provide a peening of the surface being cleaned. The finish achieved with a vapour blaster leaves the part being cleaned looking bright and lustrous. Old cast aluminium often looks like a new part straight from the mould.
This guide explains the construction and setup of vapour blasting cabinets, with additional information and diagrams to assist readers in constructing their own.
