Without water and chemicals

The dry ice cleaning systems from Dry Ice Energy gently clean surfaces and hard-to-reach areas without water or aggressive chemicals.

More compact and simple than ever

With a weight of only 17 kilograms and the size of a vacuum cleaner, the machine is very light and easy to handle compared to known industrial machines. The low volume made it possible to clean on demand during operation.

General advantages of dry ice cleaning ...

Mold cleaning in the plastics industry is often very time-consuming due to the complex structure of the tools and molds as well as the high quality requirements and requires the time-consuming use of mechanical cleaning processes in combination with the use of chemical, aggressive and often harmful cleaning agents. Often it is inevitable that the molds get scratched or their structure is changed over time until they can no longer be used - which can quickly mean a five to six-figure new investment.

Dry ice cleaning offers many advantages here - it is not abrasive and works completely without water and with significantly less chemicals. The dry ice, which is accelerated by compressed air to a temperature of -79 degrees, increases its volume by 700 times when it hits the molds and thus removes contamination from release agents, oil, grease or outgassing without leaving any residue. For this reason, dry ice cleaning has been discussed and used as an alternative to manual cleaning with chemicals for some time.

However, the blasting devices currently available on the market are often very heavy and therefore unwieldy, extremely loud at over 120 dB in some cases, and require compressed air that often cannot be operated without adapting the compressed air lines and compressors. In addition, there are high purchase prices of in some cases over EUR 20.000, high dry ice consumption and thus high ongoing operating costs.

What makes Dry Ice Energy special ...

The dry ice cleaning devices from Dry Ice Energy weigh only 17 kg, are very mobile and do not need any electricity - they are also very economical with an investment of less than 8.000 EUR and a low dry ice consumption of between 7 and 25 kg / h.

It can be cleaned during operation and the compact dry ice machine can be easily moved from mold to mold. The molds are cleaned during operation without dismantling and cooling down times. This achieves extremely high flexibility and time savings of over 40 percent in cleaning. At the same time, the production quality is improved, as the tool vents are cleaned much better and rejects are reduced. Thanks to the gentle cleaning, the service life of the tools is significantly increased. The costs for the previously used chemical cleaning agents and for the dry ice now used are roughly the same.

Dry ice cleaning with Dry Ice Energy is an effective, environmentally friendly and, above all, cost-neutral way of cleaning molds, with which a productivity increase of two to three percent is only possible through a modified cleaning technology. At the same time, the quality of the products is increased, the durability of the tools is significantly increased and the exposure of employees to health-related chemical cleaners is reduced.

Our concept - your benefit:

Optimization of tool and mold cleaning in the plastics industry with mobile and flexible dry ice cleaning in vacuum cleaner format.

  • Cleaning time reduced by 25-40 percent
  • Cost-neutral use due to the elimination of aggressive chemicals
  • Use in the running process without cooling the molds directly in the machine
  • Special dry ice quality - extremely gentle on the surface
  • Flexible use due to low weight (17 kg)
  •  Less rejects thanks to improved cleaning quality, even for complex shapes
