Industrial Cleaning Set To Change with Powerful New Partnership
Between Two Great Industry Leaders
IceTech America, Inc. and
Continental Carbonic Products, Inc. sign 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
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
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
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,” said Dennis Hjort, President of
IceTech America, Inc. For example, 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
“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.
With Continental Carbonic’s 34 offices around the US, Dry Ice Blasting
technology coupled with great local support is now made accessible to
any industry in the US.
