Using compressed air, the technology accelerates dry ice pellets through high-velocity nozzles onto surfaces. The pellets sublimate upon con- tact and expand 800 times to flush away contaminants. The technology enables items to be cleaned in place without disassembly and is used to remove production residues, release agents, contaminants, paints, oils and biofilms. According to the company, the dry ice blasting technology reduces downtime, improves cleaning and part quality, lowers scrap rates, improves tool utilization and increases asset life. The technology makes use of recycled carbon dioxide and eliminates the need for chemicals and water in the cleaning process. Cold Jet LLC, North, Level 3, Booth 237213 Hydraulic Holders Reduce Downtime, Provide Accuracy NT Tool offers the PHC-SA-C slim-bodied, hydrau- lic holder with jet-through coolant. Small notch- es along the sides of the holder bore enable streams of coolant to escape on each side of the cutting tool, while sealing it elsewhere. The holder's slim body design provides access to narrow workpieces, usually only accessible by shrink fit holders. Unlike shrink-fit holders, hydraulic holders can be chucked quickly with a hex wrench. This reduces downtime, eliminates the need for heat-shrink equipment and miti- gates the risk of burns associated with shrink-fit toolholding. The holder offers consistent 3-μm accuracy, according to the company. The dual clamping- point system provides stability and precision. The oil chamber around the chucking sleeve absorbs cutting vibrations, promoting smooth finishes on work surfaces, as well as more consistent cuts. An electromagnetic, rust-proof coating contributes to accuracy. The hydraulic holder is available in HSK, CAT, BT and UTS shank styles. It is offered in both inch sizes (1/8" to 1" in diameter) and metric sizes (3 to 25 mm). Custom sizes can be accommodated as well. NT Tool Corp., West, Level 3 & Annex Booth 432146
