Cold Jet/ Fakuma Environment-friendly cleaning for the plastics industry
Cold Jet says it provides various gentle, non-abrasive dry ice cleaning solutions that enable plastics manufacturers to become more efficient.
The cleaning of tools, moulds and other surfaces is critical in producing high-quality parts while cutting costs in the plastics industry. Dry ice cleaning provides an effective, yet gentle, non-abrasive cleaning of filigree contours and fine cavities in injection moulds. Cold Jet says it provides various dry ice cleaning solutions that enable plastics manufacturers to become more efficient.
Dry ice cleaning is common for environmentally friendly cleaning within the plastics industry. Depending on the cleaning application, it is possible to choose between a 3-mm dry ice pellet blasting system or the Cold Jet shaved dry ice technology, which uses any form of dry ice. Typically, the plastics industry uses the compact, one-hose, low-pressure i³ Micro-Clean electric blasting system with the patented shaved dry ice Micro-Particle technology using dry ice blocks. It produces small, odourless micro-particles that form a finer cleaning blast compared to conventional dry ice pellets.
The company notes that its dry ice cleaning can also be integrated into existing production lines in a wide range of applications, including cleaning equipment, parts and surface preparation prior to painting. The integration of an automated dry ice blasting system into an existing production line further reduces production time, improves part quality and increases profitability. The systems offered by Cold Jet combine dry ice pellet production and dry ice blasting into one system, the Combi 120H, which is integrated with a robot.
In addition to its dry ice-based cleaning systems, Cold Jet also supplies high-quality dry ice production equipment to industrial gas and end users worldwide.
Apart from its exhibits, Cold Jet will provide information on diverse cleaning solutions at Fakuma in Hall B3, Booth 3223.
