Operations Video May 2017 - Primas Dry Ice Blasting - Removing Primer and 3 Layers of Paint from a Steel Framed Extruder Perth, WA.
Primas Dry Ice Blasting was recently instructed to prepare a steel framed extruder for repainting. The client, based in Perth, WA, requested that a white steel finish be provided so that no further surface preparation would be needed.
The extruder was positioned in a busy manufacturing plant and was surrounded by high value and sensitive production equipment. Very concerned about the potential for damage to adjacent equipment the client asked that dry ice blasting be used. Dry ice blasting removed the primer and paint without causing any damage to the extruder or nearby equipment. Under pressure to maintain a food grade manufacturing environment, the client, by using dry ice blasting was able to avoid using chemicals, water or secondary media in the cleaning process.
As you can see from the video below the blasting process was highly efficient and significant down-time was avoided as the only clean up required was to sweep up the paint that had been removed.
