Stainless Steel Belts

Prior to using Cryogenesis, this customer would take these stainless steel belts off of the line and pressure washed them in the parking lot. This involved a lot of intense man hours and exposed the belt to potential damage in the removal and replacement exercise.

Cryogenesis is able to clean the belt in-situ reducing downtime and eliminating the risk of damage and potential injury to their personnel. Cryogenesis is a dry process and works perfectly in and around electrical components, so there are no restart issues when the task is completed.

  • Printing Presses

    Cleaning printing presses can be a tedious and time consuming task. Previously this customer would clean their presses by hand with brushes, chemicals and rags not only exposing their personnel to the fumes and other hazards, but also taking up valuable production time.

    Cryogenesis dry ice blasting was able to help by not only cleaning the printing units in a fraction of the time, but also cleaner than the manual methods they once employed. Cryogenesis is able to remove inks, coatings and adhesives and gives the deep cleaning that is required for smooth and efficient operation.

  • Extrusion Screws, Molds and Dies

    Extrusion screws, molds and dies all experience the buildup of release agents and residues from the production process. In most cases, Cryogenesis can clean the components in situ and while still hot. Cryogenesis works quickly and without the need for manual scraping, chipping or the use of chemicals. Our technology is non-abrasive so it will not damage the substrate and totally dry so production can be up and running in nominal time.

  • Production Lines

    The customer is an aluminum can manufacturer and requires scheduled cleaning of their varnish line. In this fast paced high speed environment, time is of the essence. Where manual cleaning methods were once used, Cryogenesis is able to clean the production lines quicker resulting in more production time.

    Cryogenesis dry ice blasting is adjustable in both blast pressure and dry ice consumption. This allows the technology to be aggressive on those tough contaminants, yet gentle enough to work around sensitive electrical components. Its non-abrasive attributes allow it to clean delicate substrates like the lens of this photoelectric eye without etching the glass surface.

  • Electrical Equipment

    Dry ice blasting cleaning is established as one of the safest, most economical method to clean rotating electrical equipment. Cryogenesis is used to clean motors, generators, switchgear, stator or rotor windings, armatures or field poles, AC or DC. Winding contaminates such as oil, dried paper, dirt, dust and carbon are easily removed with non-conductive, non-abrasive, moisture free dry ice cleaning.

    Cryogenesis works in conjunction with your present motor repair vendor on motors that are too large to economically remove. Cryogenesis has been successfully utilized to clean switchgear, transformer bushings, breakers, relays, distribution buss and substation components.

  • Equipment Cleaning Without Harsh Chemicals

    Today, companies are trying to get more out of their equipment capital investment. Equipment needs to be clean in order to run smoothly and efficiently. With growing environmental concerns, old cleaning methods that use harsh chemicals or abrasives that add to the waste stream are going by the wayside.

    Cryogenesis dry ice blasting answers the challenge with a fast effective method that does not subject your employees to harsh chemicals, is non-abrasive so it will not damage the substrate and is non-waste generating so it is safe for the environment.
