Linde: The alternative to automated surface cleaning using CO2 – CRYOCLEAN Snow

15 May 2014 | Automotive Manufacturing Solutions

Cleaning is a key and often challenging step in the automotive production workflow.

Manufacturers need a fast, efficient and cost-effective solution for removing dirt, grease and other unwanted substances from manufactured parts, molds and tools. Quality and productivity for joining and coating are enhanced when you have a superior solution. Process automation is key to improving productivity and many operations are looking for eco-friendly alternatives.

View this webinar to learn about this waterless, solvent-free system to remove residue and other contaminants from plastic and metal surfaces, using a pressurized stream of cryogenic carbon dioxide and micro-particles of dry ice. The compact, scalable and easily automated system provides a cost effective solution, while providing continuous cleaning on demand.  It is a highly-effective alternative to more traditional aqueous based systems for surface preparation.   

The webinar examines:

       * The physics and surface dynamics of the cleaning system
       * Primary applications in OEM parts manufacturing and finishing        
       * Comparison with other parts cleaning methods, including water-based systems
