We do vapour blasting and sand blasting
A sandblasting system includes four basic components: the air source, the sandblasting cabinet, the dust collector, and the blasting media. The air source is usually bottle gas or an air compressor. The sandblasting cabinet holds the object being blasted, while the dust collector removes dust from the cabinet. The materials used in sandblasting, whether sand or not, are referred to as blast media. Sandblasting can remove paint, rust, and residue from oxidation from materials quickly and efficiently. Sandblasting can also be used to change the condition of a metal's surface, such as through removing scratches or casting marks. Sandblasting as a cleaning method has been widely used for over a hundred years.

Aluminium castings in particular look “like new” after this process. The peening effect of vapor blasting actually seals the microscopic pores on the surface, the part will not absorb grease and dirt like a dry blasted part will. Surfaces aren't affected, precision tolerances, such as bearing fits and piston size will not be changed
Vapour Blasting For High Quality Finishing.
Vapour blasting or wet blasting is non-destructive which makes it an ideal process for cleaning many components to the highest standard and produces a smooth, satin finish.

Engine Building with Vapour Blasting
Vapour Blasting is becoming a top priority for many automotive and motorcycle workshops. Why? With vapour blasting you can clean restore and protect with one simple step using wet blasting. With the flow based topography following nature of the wet slurry you can clean corrosion, oxidation, carbon, rust and years of grime and tarnish out of the tightest places. No other process compares when it comes to not only cleaning but surface finishing parts for a rebuild or partial restoration .
Vapour blasting uses water and mildly abrasive media to clean metal surfaces without actually wearing away any of the metal - unlike sand-blasting which is a far more destructive process.
The water buffers and lubricates the particles on impact allowing very fine finishes to be produced without damage to the component. The end result is a far finer finish and no abrasive media is left behind because it is all washed away with the water, to restore components to a "like new" condition, producing a smooth, satin finish.
Vapour blasting is also great for surface preparation for bonding, polishing, welding, or coating of parts & components. Cleaning the topography of the surface this provides an excellent surface for plating. The flushing action of combined water and abrasive allows optimal surface cleanliness and preparation for final metal plating - Nickel, Chrome, Brass or Silver.
Vapor blasting is generally much gentler than dry abrasive blasting. The water acts as a cushion for the abrasive. In traditional dry sandblasting, the abrasive impacts the surface, and subsequently shatters into smaller particles, causing dust.
In wet blasting, the water acts as a dampener. When the abrasive hits the blasted surface, the shattered particles are contained within the water. The spent media is collected in a drain basin or other receptacle.
There is another notable difference between dry blasting and vapor blasting. In dry blasting, the abrasive impacts at an angle, leaving a deep anchor profile. In wet blasting, the water cushions the impact, meaning the surface profile is dispersed more evenly, in a feathered pattern. This allows for a finer blasting process.
