Cold Jet®, the world leader in developing high-performance dry-ice cleaning solu-tions is providing dry-ice cleaning demonstrations at Booth 237213 at IMTS. The demos use Cold Jet’s i³MicroClean, which showcases the innovative dry-ice blasting technology, which is a non-abrasive, non-conductive cleaning method that is fast, delicate, and does not use chemicals or solvents.
Dry-ice cleaning uses recycled CO₂ in the form of solid dry ice pellets that are ac-celerated by compressed air through high-velocity nozzles onto the surface being cleaned. Through the combination of the kinetic and thermal effects, the bond be-tween the contaminant and the surface is broken, thus cleaning the substrate. The dry ice pellets sublimate (return to their gaseous state) upon contact and expand 800 times to flush the contaminant from the surface.
Dry-ice cleaning allows items to be cleaned in place without disassembly and is used to remove production residues, release agents, contaminants, paints, oils, and biofilms and can be used for many general cleaning applications. It provides a quick, safe, and economical solution to cleaning tooling and equipment and results in less downtime, a better clean, higher quality parts with lower scrap rates, improved tool use, and longer asset life.
Cold Jet is the world leader in developing environmentally responsible cleaning so-lutions that help reduce maintenance costs, enhance product quality and improve productivity. Cold Jet dry-ice cleaning is used in a variety of industries and applications, making use of recycled carbon dioxide while eliminating the need for chemicals and water in the cleaning process. Cold Jet is a private company with global headquarters in Loveland, Ohio, and international operations in Europe, Asia, Canada, and Mexico.
