Problem: Build-up on grates, skids, hooks, and carriers reduces paint shop efficiency and often leads to a below-quality finish. Chemical stripping and incineration are effective, but are hard on operating personnel and expose them to hazards.
Problem: Ceramic shells are typically chipped away from investment castings, a process that is not only tedious and labor-intensive, but can damage the casting inside. The more intricate the casting shape, the bigger the problem.
We have developed washing techniques and technologies for the military industry in keeping with high military standards of safety and efficiency, using water jets and the sanding power of aluminum oxide. We are currently creating an anchor profile that will allow us to file a plating patent application for an exclusive, entirely automated surface treatment which prolongs engine life in extreme conditions. At IST Pure, we also manufacture washing tunnels for the complete cleaning of military vehicles and ballistic...

Problem: A burr left on a metal part – or flash on a molded one – not only sends a message of poor quality, it can cause serious problems down the road. If it breaks off later inside a fuel injector or other critical part, it can cause clogs or damage that can affect performance.
Pulp and paper industry is one of the largest industries in the world. This industry deals with lots of harmful chemicals. Ice blasting is a non-abrasive and chemical free cleaning process with negligible airborne which is the answer to a range of cleaning issues.
