Dana Ridge wetblast abrasive systems

Welcome to Dana-Ridge

Australia's home of the wet blast process

Since 1987 Dana-Ridge has been selling, manufacturing, modifying and servicing commercial grade wet blast cabinet systems to customers here in Australia and around the world.

Wetblasting can describe a multitude of processes and can be known by a variety of names such as slurry blasting, vapour/vapor blasting, vapour/ vapor honing . Some outdoor open systems are also called wetblasters, (just to add to the complexity).

Just ONE environmentally friendly machine will  replace your dusty dryblaster with its  inferior finish AND the parts washer with its nasty hazardous chemicals. Never mind the time saved from scrubbing and cleaning. From delicate finishes on soft metals and plastics to paint and powdercoat removal, the Dana-Ridge wetblaster can do it all!

The cut-away picture above shows how the Dana-Ridge wetblast process works.  The machine thoroughly agitates the media and water and draws from a collection point at the bottom of the sump.  It allows a highly efficient blast compared to other methods of wetblasting.

Benefits of the process

  • Provides a superior finish
  • Uses a high volume, low pressure pump allowing multi-gun operation
  • Air used only to atomise to obtain desired degree of aggressiveness of blasting.
  • Pump simultaneously provides sump agitation
  • Allows for both gentle or aggressive blasting with control over the air supplied to the process gun.
  • Little to no damage to more delicate parts. No heat-damage.
  • Recirculation of media giving long life and reduced costs.
  • Multi-gun system fed from single pump so uniformity of flow and concentration are maintained.
  • Bonus is simultaneous degreasing and rust inhibition.
  • Long working life from the glandless urethane-lined pump
  • Maximum use of space in the hopper as the pump is mounted to the back of the machine. This also allows ease of access for maintenance.
  • Using its scrubbing action, contamination, surface deposits, scale or burrs are quickly removed and carried away, leaving a very clean and smooth surface.
  • They are commercial grade machines able to operate hour after hour in a busy workshop.
