Cleaning is a key step in the production flow. Manufacturers need a fast, effective, non-residual way to remove, dirt, grease and other unwanted substances from parts produced, infrastructures and tools.
Our CRYOCLEAN® solutions, being snow or pellet, has become a standard method in various areas of industrial cleaning, being automated or manual processes.
CRYOCLEAN® is the ideal treatment option both before and after welding, bonding and painting of plastics and metals; it is ideal to remove agent residues, grease, oil film, dust, finger prints, smoke residues, obsolete paint and residues of moulded material.
CRYOCLEAN® snow, our automated solution, uses liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) accelerated by pressurised air to produce CO2 snow particles. The cleaning effect is generated by the kinetic energy of solid CO2 particles, embrittlement of the dirt and the sublimation effect of solid CO2.
We deliver a tailored, dedicated supply concepts for CRYOCLEAN installations extending from gas supply and storage systems through supply lines up to pressure and temperature control systems. Our supply system based on our patented PRESUS® C supply system was specifically designed to meet the most exacting pressure and temperature control needs of snow blasting.
Benefits at a glance
Ecological – replacement of environmentally harmful solvents and positive impact on energy usage
Cost-efficient – reduction in running costs compared with a water- or solvent-based cleaning system
Time-efficient – no additional drying processes required after completion of cleaning
Fast – cleaning time down from several minutes with wet washing to less than one minute in the case of bumpers, for instance
Compact – only a fraction of the space needed for wet washing is required
Predictable – elimination of residual moisture problems and drying steps associated with wet washing
Economical – targeted cleaning action rather than cleaning the entire surface
Automated – elimination of the risk and expense of human errors
Flexible – rapid start-up and option of ramping capacity up or down on demand
Stable – precise control over all process parameters
Approved – most automotive manufacturers have already issued specifications for cleaning with carbon dioxide snow
