As a leading global manufacturer of welding solutions and more, Red-D-Arc Welderentals has chocked up more than its share of success stories over the years. And the number of satisfied customers keeps on expanding. Most recently, a coating and refinishing company based in New Jersey contacted Red-D-Arc for help with a project in a gymnasium. Here is how the Red-D-Arc team found the perfect solution with its dry ice blasting equipment.
Efficient and environmentally friendly
In this 17,000-square-foot space, the paint on the ceiling was fading and needed a re-coat. The customer wanted an efficient, environmentally friendly solution with minimal cleanup for this large-scale paint-removal project. So the Red-D-Arc crew recommended dry-ice blasting. This method uses solid carbon-dioxide pellets to remove debris without doing any damage to the surface being cleaned. These pellets are accelerated to supersonic speeds through a pressurized air stream, and they sublimate upon impact.
Red-D-Arc supplied after-cooled compressors and ColdJet dry ice blasting equipment for the customer to support this project. Also provided was a reliable supply of fresh/dense ice pellets from Airgas dry ice. Airgas dry-ice pellets are manufactured with ColdJet pelletizers, and they all meet or exceed Compressed Gas Association standards. With this brand synchronization, the client could use both this equipment and pellets that were not just compatible with each other, but also designed to work together.
By renting out dry ice blasting equipment and large amounts of dry ice on demand, Red-D-Arc allowed the customer to engineer a high-performance suite of solutions for this challenging and unique undertaking.
“I’ve worked with Red-D-Arc for over seven years,” said the president of the coating company after the project was completed, “during which time they’ve proven a value-added partner, providing rental equipment and expertise to support the largest and most sophisticated dry-ice blasting projects.”
He added that Red-D-Arc is “the only choice for professionals and have been there for me every time on every project.”
With its unsurpassed expertise in dry-ice blasting and more, the Red-D-Arc team always has what it takes to succeed at tough projects like this.
