What are the applications of dry ice in life?
1. The application of dry ice in industrial molds
Tire molds, rubber molds, polyurethane molds, polyethylene molds, PET molds, foam molds, injection molds, alloy die-casting molds, casting hot core boxes, cold-core boxes, can remove residual resin, failed release layer, carbonized film agent, Oil stains, and vent holes are opened. The mold is as bright as new after cleaning.
On-line cleaning does not require cooling and disassembly of the mold, which avoids the corrosion and damage of the mold by chemical cleaning, the mechanical wear and scratches on the mold by automatic cleaning, and the reduction of mold accuracy caused by repeated loading and unloading. The critical point is that it can eliminate the two most time-consuming steps of disassembling the mold and waiting for the mold to cool down, reducing downtime by about 80%-95%.
2. Application of dry ice in the petrochemical industry
Cleaning the main fans, air compressors, hoods, steam turbines, blowers, and other equipment, as well as various types of heating furnaces, reactors, and other coking and carbon removal. Clean the polyvinyl chloride resin on the heat exchanger; remove oil, rust, hydrocarbons, and surface dirt on various pressure vessels such as compressors, storage tanks, boilers, etc.; clean up reactors, condensers, and decontaminate complex bodies; Furnace tube cleaning, etc.
Third, the application of dry ice in food and pharmacy
It can successfully remove the residues, gelatinous substances and greasy stains baked in the oven and the fresh product mixture before baking. Effectively clean ovens, mixing equipment, conveyor belts, molded products, packaging equipment, hobs, hobs, containers, rollers, freezer inner walls, biscuit oven bars, etc.
Fourth, the application of dry ice in the printing industry
It is difficult to remove ink, and ink accumulation on gears and rails can cause poor printing quality. Dry ice cleaning can remove various oil-based and water-based inks and varnishes, clean up oil stains, ink, and dyes on gears, guide rails, and nozzles, and avoid hazardous waste discharge and solutions and personal injury caused by dangerous solvents.
Five, the application of dry ice in the power industry
It can clean power boilers, condensers, and various heat exchangers; it can directly clean indoor and outdoor transformers, insulators, power distribution cabinets, wires and cables with live load (below 37KV); generators, motors, and rotors, The stator, and other parts are cleaned without damage; the rust, hydrocarbon and adhesive power of the steam turbine, the upper impeller, blades and other parts of the turbine are cleaned without removing the edges, eliminating the need to re-adjust the dynamic balance of the advantages.
Six, the application of dry ice in the automotive industry
Clean door skins, roofs, cabins, car bottom oil stains, and other water-free stains will not cause water pollution; car carburetor cleaning and car surface paint removal, etc.; remove engine carbon deposits. For the treatment of carbon deposits, the treatment time with chemical agents is long, at least 48 hours, and the agents are harmful to the human body. Dry ice cleaning can completely solve carbon deposits within 10 minutes, which saves time and reduces costs, and the descaling rate reaches 100%.
Seven, the application of dry ice in the electronics industry
Clean the internal grease and dirt of robots and automation equipment; remove integrated circuit boards, post-welding flux, contaminated coatings, resins, solvent coatings, protective coatings, and photosensitive anti-corrosion agents on printed circuit boards.
8. Application of dry ice in aerospace
Pre-processes of missile and aircraft painting and final assembly; composite molds and exceptional aircraft paint removal; engine carbon deposit cleaning; maintenance cleaning (especially landing gear-wheel compartment area); aircraft shell paint removal; jet engine conversion system. Can work directly on the body, saving time.
Nine, the application of dry ice in the shipbuilding industry
Ship shell; seawater suction valve; seawater condenser and heat exchanger; engine room, machinery, electrical equipment, etc., are cleaner than general high-pressure water jet cleaning.
10. The application of dry ice in the nuclear industry
Suppose traditional cleaning methods such as water, sandblasting, or chemical cleaning agents are used to clean atomic industry equipment. In that case, media such as water, sandblasting, or radioactive elements also contaminate chemical cleaning agents. It takes time and money to treat these media that have been contaminated twice. With the dry ice cleaning process, the dry ice particles are directly sprayed onto the object to be cleaned and sublimated instantly. There is no problem with secondary pollution. What needs to be processed is only the nuclear-contaminated fouling and other wastes that are cleaned away.
11. Application of dry ice in the beauty industry
Some dermatologists use dry ice to treat pimples. This treatment is called cryotherapy because it will freeze the skin slightly.
12. Application of dry ice in the food industry
Add dry ice cubes to wine, cocktails, or beverages. It is excellent and delicious when drinking, and the glass is filled with smoke, which is very pleasant. Dry ice is added when making ice cream, so the ice cream will not melt quickly. Dry ice is especially suitable for seafood specialties made by refrigerated star-rated hotels and restaurants that sell ice cream. Adding dry ice to the table can produce white smoke scenery and improve banquets' quality, such as making lobster sashimi. Lobster, crab, shark fin, and other seafood are frozen and refrigerated. Dry ice does not contain meltwater and is cleaner and cleaner than water ice refrigeration. It is widely used in Europe, America, Japan, and other countries.
13. Application of dry ice in the field of refrigerated transportation
Low-temperature freezing for medical purposes and low-temperature transport of certain drugs such as plasma and vaccines. Long- and short-distance transportation of electronic low-temperature materials and precision components. Fresh-keeping and transportation of high-end food such as high-end beef and mutton.
14. Application of dry ice in the entertainment field
It is widely used in stage, theater, film and television, weddings, celebrations, evening parties, etc., to produce cloud sea effects. Countless classic repertoires are using dry ice to create special effects nationwide and around the world.
15. Application of dry ice in the fire protection industry
Dry ice is used for fire fighting, such as some low-temperature fire extinguishers, but dry ice is less used in this area; that is, the market is relatively low.
