The Gladstone Slip Pump has been designed as a highly versatile method of slip casting both for studio and hobby ceramics. The pump uses a rotary vaned design capable of giving a good, even flow. The pump also has an agitating effect on the slip keeping the slip in a usable condition for short periods of time, and it can also drain moulds by the use of a syphoning action. The slip pump is supplied with two metres of hose and a specifically designed professional slip gun.
The Gladstone spraybooth has been designed to meet the ever increasing need to protect our environment. The waterwash spraybooth works on the principle of a curtain of continuous recycling water running down the rear face of the spraybooth, a glaze spray is aimed towards this curtain, the spray being guided by a powerful extraction fan, the glaze is trapped by the water curtain, whilst the air stream is pulled through the booth and into a washable stainless steel pre filter and finally into a washable filter bag. The excess glaze is washed into the tank and can at a later date be reclaimed depending on the type and colour of the glaze. There is a ball valve to allow the water to be drained and the contents of the tank removed. Any glaze materials can also be removed and disposed of safely. The booth is mounted on four castor wheels. The G165 is primarily designed to be used by the studio potter and educational faculties for low volume production, therefore the booth does not need ducting to atmosphere making it portable around the studio environment.Buy Now
