The acp - advanced clean
production GmbH is worldwide the only provider of
cleaning systems based on an innovative CO2 Snow-Jet
Cleaning Process. The specific characteristics of
this cleaning process are approved to new areas of
application in different fields of technology. Such
systems are able to be easily adapted on various production
CO2 Snow-Jet Cleaning systems use solid CO2 ice crystals
as a jet medium. With its combination of mechanical,
thermal and chemical properties, CO2 snow is able
to gently detach and remove a whole variety of surface
contamination. Developed at the Fraunhofer IPA in
Stuttgart, Germany, the sublimation-impulse technique
is the most efficient process to date for cleaning
with CO2 snow worldwide.
As the liquid CO2 expands at the nozzle outlet, CO2
snow is formed which is accelerated to supersonic
speed using a compressed-air jacketed jet and blasted
onto the surface to be cleaned. The CO2 snow cleans
gently, is dry, residue-free and suitable for use
for a wide variety of materials and material combinations.
CO2 gas is non-flammable, non-corrosive, non-toxic
The CO2 Snow-Jet Cleaning technique can be integrated
into a wide variety of cleaning systems.

Environmentally-friendly and non-toxic
Cleaning is material non-dependent
The CO2 snow-jet nozzles designed by acp - advanced
clean production GmbH have been developed for a broad
range of application. Nozzles with a dot-shaped jet
enable functional surfaces, e.g. bonding and sealing
surfaces, welded seams, etc., to be cleaned in a targeted
and selective way without having to clean the complete
part. Particularly small nozzles have also been designed
for cleaning areas which are difficult to access.
Nozzle arrays and flat nozzles are available for cleaning
larger areas. The advantages of the CO2 snow-jet cleaning
technique are, that it is environmentally friendly,
residue free, solvent-free, and can be used in a cost
optimised way to clean large delicate surfaces, e.g.
plastic components before application of paint.
