Dry Ice Blasting and Industrial Cleaning for Plastic Injection Plant in Kentucky

Location:., Kentucky
Industry:
Industrial
Location:., Kentucky
Sq. Ft. of work:
11 machines: 9 at 15 x 40ft long, 2 at 30 x 70 ft long

Client and Facility Overview

Our client, a prominent plastic injection molding plant in Kentucky, is known for its precision and efficiency in producing high-quality plastic components. The facility houses several large machines that are critical to their molding processes, operating at temperatures between 800 and 1000 degrees. Maintaining the cleanliness of their equipment is crucial to ensuring smooth operations and quality output, requiring detailed planning and coordination to allow for safe cooling time.

Requested Maintenance

Due to the high operating temperatures and the critical nature of the equipment, the client required a thorough cleaning using industrial degreasers followed by dry ice blasting. The cleaning project focused on eleven key machines, nine of which measure 15 x 40 feet and two larger units that each measure 30 x 70 feet. This method was chosen to ensure that no residue was left behind, maintaining the efficiency of the machinery and preventing contamination of the finished plastic products.

Decision Driver and Timing

The need to maintain operational efficiency and prevent contamination drove the decision for this comprehensive cleaning. Given the operational temperatures, cooling periods had to be meticulously planned to avoid any production downtime.

Scope of Work

  • Initial Cleaning: Hand-cleaning of machinery using industrial degreasers 
  • Dry Ice Blasting: Utilizing pressurized streams of carbon dioxide to remove grime and contaminants 
  • Scheduling: Coordinated cooling periods for each machine to safely perform the cleaning without interrupting production.
  • Completion Time: The project was completed over a span of two weeks 

Notable Details

Safe and Efficient Cleaning Solution

The use of dry ice blasting was critical because it eliminates residue and minimizes the risk of contaminating the plastic components. This cleaning method does not require disassembly of the machines, which reduces downtime and ensures a faster return to full operation.

Return Client

The success of the initial project led the client to request additional cleaning services for larger machines at their facility, highlighting their satisfaction and the effectiveness of the cleaning process.

Client Satisfaction

Management at the plastic injection molding facility was very pleased with the results, noting the efficiency and thoroughness of the cleaning process. With minimal disruption to their operations and a high standard of cleanliness achieved, they have chosen Painters USA for future maintenance work.
