Foundry - Dry Ice Blast Cleaning

Dry Ice Blast Cleaning 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 Cold Jet dry ice blasting, allowing for greater production efficiency.

Maintenance crews find that because Cold Jet 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

See additional General Maintenance and Facilities applications that will increase the value of owning a Cold Jet dry ice blasting system.

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
