Cleaning technology has changed dramatically over the years, especially thanks to one of the most common gases in our atmosphere – carbon dioxide.
Using CO2 for cleaning complex, professional devices with precision and surface preparation applications has become more and more popular as manufacturers see the many environmental, efficiency and cost benefits of this cutting edge technology.
One manufacturing industry that’s increasingly adopting dry carbon dioxide cleaning is the automotive industry. Several major car makers are finding that the technology is allowing them to save money and time, while lowering their negative impact on the environment.
What makes CO2 special?
Besides the garments, pharmaceuticals and aeronautic industries, the automobile sector has been adopting the use of CO2 for cleaning as well. The gas is pulled out of a cylinder or Dewar and regulated through the Omega™ cleaning module where it forms the solid CO2 particles that provide the cleaning. The converted solid particles can vary both in size and density. […]
