Most packaging cardboard boxes are printed with a wax or clay based graphic. As boxes are transported by conveyer rollers, this box coating is rubbed off and transferred onto the rollers. The coating can build up on the rollers to a level where boxes will begin to fall off the conveyor.

Cold Jet Australia dry ice blasting process thoroughly cleans the wax or clay build up from the rollers while the conveyor is still assembled. Cleaning with dry ice blasting reduces the downtime needed for conveyor cleaning, thus increasing line productivity.

Packaged beverage containers have an ink-jet code applied for information transfer and tracking. With ink-jet processes, an unwanted over spray occurs on nearby machinery, conveyers, belt drives, and electronics.

Consequently, the ink will redeposit onto the package and create an unacceptable finished product. The Cold Jet Australia dry ice blasting process gently removes the ink over-spray and prevents scrap or line shut-down.
