Vapour blasting is the process of using water vapour for abrasive blasting. In Hampshire, it is slowly becoming the industry standard due to the many advantages it provides over other methods like dry blasting or wet blasting. There are a lot of firms such as Ultra Blast that can provide you with services like vapour blasting in Hampshire at affordable cost.
The following are some of the benefits that you can get from vapour blasting.
Vapour blasters make use of water vapour to make the abrasive moist and easy to work with. The water and the abrasive are mixed in a single pot and then it is injected in the airflow. Due to the presence of water, the particles instantly settle down and the overall dust or particles that are produced during other methods are reduced by 95% in this method.
Little to no containment required
Traditional methods like dry blasting produce a lot of dust and debris in the room where the process takes place. This is why those rooms need to be sealed when the process is going on. On the other hand, vapour blasting doesn’t require any type of containment as a very minor amount of dust and particles are leaked out in open.
Consumes lesser quantity of water
Vapour works more efficiently than plain water which is why this method is preferred over wet blasting. There is not a lot lower water requirement for this, which allows you to easily save a lot of water amounting upto 80% lesser than wet blasting.
