Aqua Wheelblaster

Greens Automotive located in Richmond, Canada has over 60 years’ expertise in car repair. The family-run business repair and refinish over 40 wheels a day.

The Vixen Aqua Wheelblaster has become a valuable tool in their ability to repair and refurbish wheels quickly and efficiently. The machine is used 10 hours a day, six days a week, making it a key part of their business. 

The Aqua Wheelblaster combines the standard six stage process of manually preparing alloy wheels into one compact cabinet. The process uses water mixed with abrasive to blast the wheel inside the machine to create an etched finish, ready for the next stage of the repairing process. The use of water in this application ensures that no media is impregnated onto the alloy wheel. The water also provides a washing action and does not strip the wheel back to bare metal. 



Owner Greens Automotive

The major benefit of purchasing the Aqua Wheelblaster is it speeds up the refinishing process of wheel repairs.  The machine helps us clean the wheels more efficiently saving us time on wages and cleaners. We also use fewer chemicals; in turn this is safer for the environment and employees as well, as it cuts down our recycling costs and use of hazardous materials. 

The wheel blaster cleans the wheels so well that we spend less time on prepping the wheels for the paint stage.  Again, this saves us time and money.

We purchased the machine in 2015, we found everyone at Vixen to be very helpful and prompt, almost by return. Any questions or concerns were addressed within a reasonable amount of time. If the front-end customer services could not help us, they were quick to pass us onto engineers if needed. The machine itself has had no problems and the owner’s manual is easy to understand and follow.
