Vixen is still operating as normal, in compliance with UK Government social distancing guidelines, and we would like to reassure everyone that we are open and responding to enquiries. In the unprecedented situation we all find ourselves in, our thoughts are with the families of those fighting the COVID-19 virus and with front-line health workers around the world.
A major benefit of using the Jetair Tumbler is that it offers a more cost-effective alternative to using a hand blast cabinet. Components are loaded into the drum where they are slowly tumbled under a stream of media which is delivered by adjustable blast guns.
The Tumbler range can be operated with a wide range of blast media, including plastics, vegetable matter, glass bead and alumina. Chilled iron grit and steel shot may also be used in pressure-fed systems.
At the end of each timed cycle, the drum continues to rotate to remove media from the components and the drum. At the same time, air wash guns are brought into operation to help remove any last traces of dust or media. Parts may be removed either manually from the drum or via a discharge chute, which is available as an optional extra.
Tumblers are yet another way that Vixen Surface Treatments can help you in the dry blasting cleaning of your components.Make an enquiry
