On-board pellet plant:
Dry ice cleaning is particularly efficient in places where chemicals cannot be used, such as on car seats or surfaces that have to be cleaned prior to painting. Pellets at a temperature of minus 79°C are 'fired' at the soiled area, making the dirt crumbly and brittle, enabling it to the easily removed.
The new IB 10/8 L2P from Kärcher therefore makes cleaning in car repair shops or in industrial processes much easier. It also incorporates the production of CO2 pellets from liquid dry ice. This eliminates the complex provision of pellets, which only have a limited life, as explained by product manager Andreas Kruner: "Miniaturisation of the production process has significantly simplified the logistics involved in making dry ice."
A standard bottle containing liquid dry ice, in which the carbon dioxide has a virtually unlimited life, is installed on top of the cleaner. It only produces pellets when cleaning is actually taking place.
