ICE BLASTING IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY
Line Maintenance -
dry ice blasting to easily remove excess grease, sludge, sealant
and weld slag during preventive maintenance. One of our installations
reports that uptime increased from 75%
to 90% because intensive
cleaning no longer needs to be done when unscheduled maintenance
occurs. Electricians and mechanics can now quickly solve problems,
rather than spend a disproportionate amount of time cleaning trouble
areas. A complete
weld station can be dry ice blast cleaned in 25 minutes, rather
than the 2 hours it would take with traditional methods.
Removal & Spray Booth Maintenance
Cold Jet dry ice blasting is replacing
hand scraping to remove E-Coat from paint shop rollers,
hooks, guiderails, electric motor and reduction gearboxes, perforated
shielding and the concrete floor. All E-Coat
is removed quickly regardless of thickness or location.
In addition to E-Coat applications, spray-booth sensors
and floor grates are kept clean and clog-free with regular dry ice

Jet dry ice blasting is an excellent choice for cleaning
metal and plastic core boxes and vents. In pressure Casting/Forging,
it removes graphite based lubricants
from press tooling. Permanent aluminum molders remove
talc or calcium silicate based coatings
from tooling in both gravity and low-pressure permanent molding
processes, and high-volume gray iron permanent molders dry
ice blast clean soot from
their molds and vents daily.
In addition to
its use in production, Cold Jet dry ice blasting is an excellent
tool for many general maintenance needs including the cleaning of
cooling fans and even ceilings, walls and superstructures.
