Introducing the Viking Series
Wickens Dry Ice Blasting has recently introduced the new Viking series to its equipment line. Equal in power and efficiency to other models, but with innovative designs and lower price tags, the Viking 3000 and the Viking Mini offer portability, reliability and affordability to contractors.
Slim and Strong – the Viking 3000
Build with challenging environments in mind, the Viking 3000 is only 400mm/15.75in wide making it easy to operate in small or narrow spaces. It has also been designed so there are no components sticking out from the sides that might catch in tight spots; instead all outward features are at the back of the unit.
Like the bigger models, the Viking 3000 is still able to hold 25kg/55lbs of dry ice, allowing for approximately 30 minutes of operating time before refill, depending on the scope of use. The machine is also strong and durable, and offers versatile cleaning capabilities, being gentle on surfaces when required but also able to deliver a powerful deep clean.
The Viking 3000 is available in two power types; pneumatic power, which is perfect for contractors working in spaces that do not have a constant or reliable electrical supply, and electric power, which is ideal in factory or commercial settings where an electric supply is readily available.
At a height of only 610mm/24 in and a weight of only 29 kg/64 lbs, the Viking Mini is easy to lift, store and bring out for frequent use. It is the ideal dry ice blasting machine for regularly cleaning small parts, electronics, and process and packaging equipment.
Designed for use in work areas, the Viking Mini produces almost no noise. This means an operator can carry out a cleaning job without interrupting production times. With a hopper capacity of 8 kg of dry ice, the machine can operate for up to 20 minutes before refill, depending on the pressure setting and use.
Unlike larger blasting machines, the Viking Mini does not require a high airflow compressor but instead has been designed to function using plant air supply. The lower air pressure does not affect the quality of clean – the Viking Mini delivers a quality deep clean every time.
Retailing for substantially less than other dry ice blasting machines, the Viking 3000 and the Viking Mini are the most affordable machines on the market.
