IceTech America, Inc. and Continental Carbonic Products, Inc. have signed a deal to offer cutting edge cleaning technology to American industries.

Industries seeking the best way to clean their most critical equipment and production machines in a safe, environmentally friendly and cost efficient manner now have a viable solution within reach.

Continental Carbonic Products, Inc., the largest privately held manufacturer and distributor of dry ice in the United States, has agreed to distribute dry ice blasting equipment manufactured by IceTech America, Inc., to offer the cutting edge industrial cleaning technology to industry’s most challenging demands.

Dry Ice Blasting is a cleaning technology that uses dry ice pellets propelled at high speed to clean off surface contamination, corrosion and deposits on industrial production equipment. It is a powerful alternative to traditional methods of cleaning because it reduces maintenance downtime and man-hour costs.

The non-abrasive cleaning process will not damage the surface and is completely environmentally friendly. Dry Ice Blasting avoids the use of conventional chemical intensive cleaning methods with no secondary toxic waste produced. Even the gas used in making the dry ice is derived from the byproducts of other industries that would otherwise have been released only to contribute directly to greenhouse warming.

Continental Carbonic Products, Inc. will now offer a wide range of dry ice blast cleaning solutions from IceTech’s extensive product line and from their own quality dry ice products.

“As an industry leader we are always on the lookout for strong partners and we found that in IceTech. They offer a high quality equipment range, backed by years of expert application knowledge,” said John Funk, President of Continental Carbonic.

“Our customers can now expect great cleaning solutions offered at an outstanding value.”

“IceTech’s Dry Ice Blasting equipment is considered top range because they are highly effective and easier to use compared to other blasting equipment available in the market,” commented Dennis Hjort, President of IceTech America, Inc.

The KG50 1” Pro model dry ice blasting machine can reduce the cleaning cycle by as much as two thirds.

IceTech machines can be remotely controlled and have high degree of flexibility and variable adjustments allowing users to design a cleaning process specifically tailored to their needs.

“We have had our IceTech blaster for a few years now. It has helped reduce cleaning time on our equipment. It's fast, powerful and actually kind of fun to use,” said Darron Littleton, Flexo Supervisor of Fold-Pak, A RockTenn company.

“Our operating costs have been significantly reduced because of the lower maintenance downtime and subsequent higher productivity.”

Many customers have reported at least a 25% increase in productivity when they switched to dry ice blasting.
