Cold Jet dry ice blasting can reduce wood press cleaning time by as much as 85% while reducing labor costs and providing a safer cleaning process for employees. Traditionally, workers are involved in a very labor-intensive, manual cleaning process using angle grinders and other tools. This cleaning process is dangerous and requires employees to work within the machines in very close proximity to residue and dust, which are harmful if inhaled. In addition, manual cleaning is not fully effective as the unreachable parts of the machine simply do not get cleaned.

Cold Jet eliminates the manual cleaning of presses, dryers and vents, while eliminating employee exposure to unsafe conditions. Dry ice cleaning is four times faster than the traditional cleaning methods and ultimately more cost-effective.

Cleaning with Cold Jet Dry Ice Blasting in the Engineered Wood Industry Provides:

  • Reduced fire hazard
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Reduced downtime
  • A non-abrasive process
  • Increased employee safety
  • No secondary waste
  • An in-place clean with no cool down required

A Few Proven Engineered Wood Applications for Cold Jet Dry Ice Blasting Include:

  • OSB presses
  • Sanding Belt
  • Wet Scrubber
  • Dryer
  • Peeler / Lathe
  • Glue Applicator
  • Ventilation Blades
  • Pitch & Resin Removal
  • Finger Joint Blade Holder
