Cold Jet will demonstrate its i3 MicroClean and Aero 40 environmental cleaning and surface preparation systems, which both use the company’s shaved dry ice and feeder technologies. According to the company, dry ice cleaning is environmentally responsible and non-abrasive, extending the asset life of the mold. The process can be used to clean a variety of materials, from traditional H-13 and P-20 molds to aluminum molds with beryllium inserts. Dry ice cleaning also can be used to deflash and deburr parts and prepare part surfaces prior to painting or coating.

The i3 MicroClean, which will be in operation cleaning a four-cavity mold, is designed to clean parting lines (cavities and vents) while a mold is still in the machine, at operating temperatures. It is said to improve quality by cleaning more precisely without residue, reduce scrap rates, increase productivity by cleaning faster, minimize downtime and lower cost by eliminating the use of expensive chemicals, which can also have disposal fees. The Aero 40 is designed for applications with thicker contaminants, such as screw cleaning.
