Carbon dioxide cleaning produces solid CO2 particles (or snow) which sublimes upon contact with the surface, leaving no cleaning agent residues to manage or condensation left on part surfaces.
Surface Preparation with CO2
Cleaning and surface preparation prior to painting is of critical importance in the automotive industry. Automated CO2 cleaning is changing the way automotive manufacturers pre-treat and prepare surfaces. The combination of CO2 cleaning with robotic applicators is quickly becoming the standard in the industry for painting and coating parts.
CO2 spray cleaning is a waterless, residue-free solution designed as a replacement for traditional aqueous and solvent based cleaning operations. CO2 cleaning uses either solid or liquid phase carbon dioxide to clean, remove particulate matter, de-oil, and degrease, resulting in clean parts that do not require a drying step.
Robotic CO2 spray cleaning systems provide cost effective, no-touch cleaning technology that can be easily integrated into numerous types of existing production lines with a fraction of the footprint of other cleaning methods.
