Below we have put together a number of images which illustrate the practical applications of dry ice blasting.
CONSTRUCTION – RECOVERY OF A HARDWOOD CEILING
The operation concerned the recovery of a hardwood ceiling in a city centre private residence. The client and the architects wanted to remove the layer of paint in order to restore the natural colour and grain of the wood. The objective was fully achieved with excellent quality results. This operation was another demonstration of the advantages of dry ice over traditional sand-blasting: no water, no sand residue and no by-products to dispose of. The photographs below demonstrate a number of the stages of the operation carried out with our DRY GUN 02 system, and with the use of specially-produced 1.7 mm dry ice, which is ideal for the treatment of wood.
INDUSTRIAL – MATERIAL BONDING
A number of industrial applications bonding of plastic and other materials.
INDUSTRIAL – PAPER PRODUCTION FOR NEWSPAPER PRINTING
A selection of images of dry ice blasting in a production plant for paper for newspapers. In this particular case, dry ice blasting is used for the rollers inside the system, on the conveyor belts and on the roller in the final section of the system.
INDUSTRIAL – PRODUCTION OF PLASTIC PRE-FORMS FOR BOTTLES
A selection of photographs of moulds for the production of pre-forms in PET. The use of dry ice blasting allows for the removal of all types of residue, even from the more detailed sections of the mould. Dry ice blasting is particularly suitable in the food sector due to the absence of chemical residue and for the bactericidal effect of dry ice.
INDUSTRIAL – REMOVAL OF GLUE AND LABELS
Removal of labels and/glue residue from containers. Removal is immediate, effective and ecological.
INDUSTRIAL – MOULDING
A range of applications in the industrial sector of moulding.
INDUSTRIAL – RUBBER MOULDING
A range of applications in the industrial sector of rubber moulding.
INDUSTRIAL – ROTOMOULDING
Removal of releasing agents from rotomoulds. Removal is non-abrasive and can be carried out directly in the machine, avoiding interruptions to production.
Dry ice blasting of parts of a continuous painting system for iron pipes. The parts to be dry ice blasted are where the tubes rest, and the inside of the oven where the paint is applied to the pipes.
A range of applications for the boat-building sector.
