Dry ice blasting has cut mold and corebox cleaning time by 60% for aluminum permanent molders. Tools from the core-making machine can be cleaned in place with dry ice blasting, allowing for greater production efficiency.

Maintenance crews find that because dry ice blasting is a dry, non-abrasive, non-conductive process that leaves no residual media to clean up, it is a great solution for many general maintenance needs. Some of the most common applications include:

  • Cleaning graphite lubricants off die-casting machines

  • Removing excess grease, dust, ink or carbon off production equipment and hydraulic power units

  • Cleaning conveyors without damaging pneumatic devices, bearings or electrical equipment

 

Cleaning with Dry Ice Blasting in the Foundry Industry Provides:

  • Reduced production downtime

  • No mold disassembly

  • A better clean while hot and in-place

  • Elimination of waste disposal cost

  • Increased production time

  • Non-abrasive cleaning with no damage to tooling

  • An environmentally responsible clean

  • A superior as-cast finish

A Few Proven Foundry Applications for Dry Ice Blasting Include:

  • Permanent Aluminum Molds

  • Refractory Coatings

  • Core Boxes and Vents

  • Die Cast Tooling

  • Shell Core Molds

  • Semi-solid Castings / Forging

  • Remove Resins & Release Agents

  • General Equipment & Facility
