Isogenix Dry Ice Blast Cleaning has a proven to drastically reduce the cost of replacing the drive belts in the packaging process. The regular use of the Isogenix system easily removes the glue build-up while reducing damage and wear on the belts.

Most packaging cardboard boxes are printed with a wax or clay based graphic. As boxes are transported by conveyer rollers, this box coating is rubbed off and transferred onto the rollers. The coating can build up on the rollers to a level where boxes will begin to fall off the conveyor.

The use of Isogenix Dry Ice Blast Cleaning eliminates the need for dismantling the conveyors and scrubbing with brushes and solvents. The Isogenix system cleans all the wax or clay build-up from the rollers while the conveyor is still assembled and reduces downtime while increasing productivity.

All packaged beverage containers have an ink-jet code applied for information transfer and tracking. As with most ink-jet processes, an unwanted over spray occurs on nearby machinery, conveyers, belt drives, and electronics. Consequently, the ink will redeposit onto the package and create an unacceptable finished product. The use of Isogenix Dry Ice Blast Cleaning gently removes the ink over-spray and therefore prevents scrap or line shut-down.
