With Cold Jet Australia dry ice blasting systems, Preform mould manufacturers have reduced their production downtime. Cold Jet Australia dry ice blast systems can clean mould surfaces even while the mould is still at curing temperature in the press.
The build-up of unwanted surface residues from either the product mix itself, mould releases or the labelling process can create various problems, ranging from product release (‘knock out’) to inferior product quality and possible damage to tools from over-packing and straining.
In addition to maintaining the cleanliness of the moulds, the Cold Jet Australia dry ice blasting systems reduce and eliminate the need to disassemble the moulds.
Cold Jet Australia dry ice blasting systems remove the waxy, paraffin build-up that can lead to blemishes (orange peel effect) on the bottles while the moulds are hot and on-line.
The manufacturing of a polyurethane foam product used in sound dampening for autos and vans leaves the manufacturer with moulds coated with an isocyanate/wax mould release.
The isocyanate/wax mould release build-up causes ‘knock out’ problems, and, in extreme cases, the wax release agent becomes encased in the polyurethane foam product, making the product unusable. With Cold Jet Australia dry ice blasting systems, moulds are cleaned quickly along with the cavities.
Cold Jet Australia dry ice blasting systems can clean entire blow and injection mould cavities completely and effectively. These dry ice blasting systems reduce daily mould cleaning time of blow moulding bottle manufacturers by cleaning moulds hot and in place.
The dry ice blasting systems can clean the blow-mould surface and the deep-cavity injection moulds, which are used to make test-tube shaped slugs.
