ASCO Carbon Dioxide Ltd has delivered a complete dry ice cleaning solution including noise control booth to DaimlerChrysler.

The noise control booth is in the motor assembly factory in Bad Cannstatt where silicon residues are removed from motor parts by a dry ice blasting unit type ASCOJET 2001RS. Before changing to dry ice cleaning, the motor parts were cleaned manually in a time intensive way. The dry ice solution provides a very efficient but still gentle cleaning method.

The noise control booth means dry ice cleaning can be integrated into the working process without disturbing other work done in the same hall. The necessary work safety is assured by an associated CO2 exhaust unit with external control.

The dry ice is obtained from DaimlerChrysler's own dry ice production plant at the core shop cylinder head in Mettingen, where two ASCO dry ice pelletizers are situated and ingot moulds and core boxes are cleaned with dry ice. The company says that thanks to their in-house dry ice production DaimlerChrysler always has fresh dry ice ready, and therefore profits from optimum cleaning performance and flexibility.
