IMTS 2018: Cold Jet’s i3 MicroClean dry ice blasting technology is a non-abrasive, non-conductive cleaning method that does not use chemicals or solvents.

Cold Jet’s i3 MicroClean dry ice blasting technology is a non-abrasive, non-conductive cleaning method that does not use chemicals or solvents. Using compressed air, the technology accelerates dry ice pellets through high-velocity nozzles onto surfaces. The pellets sublimate upon contact and expand 800 times to flush away contaminants.

The technology enables items to be cleaned in place without disassembly and is used to remove production residues, release agents, contaminants, paints, oils and biofilms. According to the company, the dry ice blasting technology reduces downtime, improves cleaning and part quality, lowers scrap rates, improves tool utilization and increases asset life.

The technology makes use of recycled carbon dioxide and eliminates the need for chemicals and water in the cleaning process.
