Nearly every major tyre manufacturing plant cleans moulds hot and in-place using Dry Ice Blasting. Compared to cooling the moulds, removing them from the press and cleaning them in a remote location, Dry Ice Blasting results in significantly greater productivity.
Dry Ice Blasting eliminates wear on the moulds, wearing from grit, the need for scraping with other tools. A variety of manufacturing and processing equipment can be effectively cleaned using Dry Ice Blasting, such as headlamp moulds and spray booths, oil and fuel filter assemblies, and brake assemblies.
Built up adhesives and latex are cleaned without any secondary waste management issues, even buildup of 2 or more inches in thickness. Flashing can also be removed using Dry Ice Blasting.
