Apollo 1 | An Exceptional Technology

The Apollo 1 Blasting System utilizes the TWIN technology revolutionizes the aero-abrasive cleaning with the possibility of mixing two different aggregates in a single operating process. In fact, to perform an optimal surface treatment, it is sometimes necessary to combine abrasive materials with different application characteristics.

To date, in order to obtain these operating methods it was necessary to mix the two materials externally with a clear waste of time and with the impossibility of returning to work with a single material before having emptied the machine tank.

Thanks to IBIX TWIN this problem is brilliantly solved in the Apollo 1 blasting system. The new technology allows the aggregates to be mixed directly from the machine, obtaining uniform and effective surface cleaning.

Philosophy

TWIN is “the most versatile aero-abrasive technology in the world”, an innovative tool created to obtain unsurpassed sandblasting solutions.

Mission

Ibix, through Twin, wants to show how adding two different types of aggregates can revolutionize the way of working: improvement is always possible.

The Apollo 1 Technology

The real innovation of Twin consists in the “double tank” and in the new gun that, combined with the other mechanical parts of operation, create unprecedented values ​​and enrichments.

Application

The treatment of rusty surfaces is more effective if a mixture of a finer and a coarser abrasive material is used. Their combined action effectively removes the rust layer, also acting on the rust deposited at the level of the surface irregularities, such as craters or the like, which is generally difficult to remove.

Operation

  • Single aggregate
  • Mixed aggregates
  • Dry
  • Wet
  • Sampling
  • Micro-blasting

Advantages

  1. The technological innovation of the double tank, which divides the aggregate tank into two independent halves.
  2. Higher quality and better result thanks to the possibility of mixing two different types of aggregates.
  3. Higher productivity. Thanks to a full flow, carrying a major flux of abrasive grains with the same air flow rate.
  4. Possibility to mix aggregates of different nature.
  5. The Apollo 1 Blasting System is easy to use!
  6. Pressure adjustment and tanks activation controls are positioned directly on the gun!
