The new ASCOJET 1208–dry ice blasting


The dry ice blasting unit ASCOJET 1208 has a new modern frame design and self-explanatory pictograms. According to ASCO, the 107-lb unit is easily carried to any place, thanks to the two large fixed rear wheels, as well as two lockable small front wheels. Housing and frame are made of robust powder coated steel. The newly integrated grounding roll and the pellet hopper’s protective grating help guarantee even safer handling during the dry ice blasting process. Consumption rates for average dry ice volume and blasting pressure can be adjusted manually.

“This high-performance machine is characterized by its lightness,” said ASCO Managing Director Marco Pellegrino. “Thanks to the compact design, the ASCOJET 1208 is also suitable for more delicate cleaning work. Since dry ice blasting is a corrosion-free and non-abrasive process, even sensitive surfaces can be cleaned easily. The combination of high cleaning performance and relatively low compressed air consumption is an additional bonus.”

The ASCO dry ice blasting technology has been successfully used in various industries for decades. Molds, tools, and machines can be cleaned by using ASCO dry ice blasting machines. In most cases, it is not necessary to dismantle the parts to be cleaned, which ensures shorter downtime and increased productivity during operation.

“At ASCO we are always striving to optimize our portfolio of dry ice blasting machines for our customers. This allows us to offer the right blasting machine for every application. The market introduction of the ASCOJET 1208 is a further step towards completion of supply,” Pellegrino said.
