Automobile assembly lines have a wide variety of cleaning issues that can be addressed by dry ice blasting. From removing excess grease and sealant to maintaining equipment condition and functionality, dry ice blasting can be successfully deployed to get the job done.
Dry ice blasting is faster and more efficient than other traditional cleaning methods. The pellets are highly effective at removing grime and oils, and will sublimate upon contact, leaving behind no secondary waste. This reduces the need for strong chemical solvents, and in many cases can eliminate the need entirely, thus saving you money. The cleaning can also be done in a fraction of the time, increasing efficiency and saving you labour costs. Faster cleaning also means less equipment downtime, increasing production output and sales. The dry ice pellets that are used are non-abrasive and environmentally friendly, and work well on a variety of surfaces. The pellets leave behind no powder or grit, and therefore will not result in damage to metal surfaces.
Dry ice blasting is useful everywhere from the assembly line to sensitive electronic components. Spray booths and body panel assembly areas can be easily cleaned by dry ice blasting. Engine blocks, cylinders, and pistons are all examples of excellent surfaces on which the pellets would be effective on. Besides metal, dry ice blasting is also useful in cleaning and polishing rubber surfaces such as tires, tire moulds, and seat frames. Some sensors and delicate computer components are also safe to clean.
The auto industry is responsible for a large portion of the economy, and it benefits everyone when they’re doing well. Dry ice blasting can help do its part to help by increasing cleaning efficiency and therefore increasing production rates.
