Dry Ice Blasting Applications:

Core Box Cleaning

Safely clean core boxes online, while reducing downtime, improving product quality and eliminating the risk of damage

Buildup of resin and sand on core box vents prevents core material from solidifying, and often causes vent clogging, which reduces product quality and creates scrap. Traditional cleaning methods are very slow, ineffective, can damage tooling and destroy vents on the core boxes.

Dry ice blasting quickly and safely removes the buildup while the core boxes are online without creating secondary waste. The process is non-abrasive and will not damage screens, vents or the tooling. Cleaning core boxes with dry ice cleaning leads to a significant reduction in production downtime and scrap rates.
