Dry Ice Deburring by Nitrofreeze
Burrs are a frequently occurring reality of most machine operators. Drilling, grinding, milling, engraving, or turning operations can all yield unacceptable burrs. To bring a part within tolerance, machined parts must undergo a post-op cleaning to remove unwanted residual burrs.
Dry Ice Deburring uses a manually operated, precision dry ice cleaning system to remove hard to reach burrs on a part. Accelerated micro-particles of shaved dry ice serve to freeze and blast away residual burrs. This process is ideal for parts with complex geometries and/or parts that require a media-less clean. Because dry ice sublimates to gaseous CO2 upon impact with the surface, Dry Ice Deburring is effectively a media-free process. Larger parts may also be good candidates for this process.
Dry Ice Deburring removes minor burrs from parts utilizing accelerated dry ice. See the process below:
What materials can we deburr?
Dry Ice Deburring has proven successful in removing minor burrs from most plastics and rubbers, with a demonstrated preference to thermoplastic polymers. Nitrofreeze has successfully deburred the following materials and more with this process:
Silicones, Nylons, PEEKs, Polycarbonates, Polyurethanes, ABS, Acetals, Delrin, PPE (Polyphenylene Ether), Turcite, Ryton (PPS), EPDM, and many more.
