2008-02-19 - Cold Jet Introduces New Aero Series of Dry Ice Blast Cleaning Systems
Environmentally friendly cleaning system combines rugged durability with fast, economical cleaning
CINCINNATI - February 19, 2008 - Cold Jet, LLC, the global leader in dry ice blast cleaning and production technology, today introduced the new Aero Series of dry ice blast cleaning systems. The Aero systems provide advanced economical dry ice cleaning in an environmentally friendly format for a variety of industries. The new models include the electric-pneumatic Aero 40, Aero 80, Aero 80-DX and Aero 80-HP, and the pneumatic-powered Aero C100, which cleans twice as fast as other pneumatic systems on the market.
"Our technology has been built with more than 20 years of research and development, and proven effective in cleaning hundreds of applications; from smoke damaged books and historical buildings to rubber tire molds and printing presses," said Gene Cooke, CEO of Cold Jet, LLC. "Our Aero cleaning systems are by far the most innovative dry ice blast cleaning solutions on the market, and the C100 is unlike anything else in the industry. It represents a quantum leap in terms of pneumatic dry ice blast cleaning. Our systems help our customers clean more effectively and efficiently while supporting their organizations' lean (Six Sigma, 5S and TPM) and green initiatives."
Cold Jet's dry ice blasting systems use non-abrasive media that won't damage surfaces or equipment. The media, dry ice pellets or particles, create mini-explosions on the surfaces being cleaned, lifting away dirt and contaminants. Unlike sand, bead or soda blasting, dry ice blasting is non-abrasive and does not leave any secondary waste, as the dry ice pellets or particles sublimate - convert from solid to gas - upon impact. Dry ice blasting is also safe and non-toxic, does not create downstream contamination, and reduces or eliminates employee exposure to dangerous chemical cleaning agents. Dry ice meets EPA, USDA & FDA guidelines.
"With each new innovation, we take into consideration the feedback and needs of our customers," added Cooke. "This generation of Aero systems was designed with our customers in mind, and built with our commitment to satisfaction, and the goal of delivering truly unmatched cleaning performance that is also safe for the environment."
The Aero Series is designed with patented features that are only found on Cold Jet systems. These features enable users to maximize their cleaning performance by eliminating clogging, maintaining pellet integrity throughout the entire process, and achieving a fast, uniform clean.
Cold Jet's Aero Series includes the following features:
- Cold Jet SureFlow System, which consists of an isolated hopper, Multi-Layer Insulation blankets, advanced agitation technology and a sealed lid;
- Patented flow-thru pocket feeder design that maintains pellet integrity and reduces air loss;
- Patented aerodynamic nozzles that help maximize performance;
- Ergonomic applicators that reduce user fatigue;
- Proprietary coupling systems for quickly and easily connecting and disconnecting nozzles and hoses;
- Aerodynamically tuned hoses, which eliminate constriction and deliver more cleaning power;
- Welded steel frame and rugged tires to ensure mobility and durability regardless of where the systems are being used; and
- The Aero 80-HP and 80-DX models also include an automatic tilt-out hopper to quickly and easily unload and preserve unused ice.
