Ever-increasing demands regarding the cleanliness of component surfaces call for increasingly effective cleaning methods.

CO2 snow cleaning quattroClean™ technology

The patented CO2 snow jet cleaning process allows dry, environmentally friendly, residue-free cleaning of sensitive areas. By using a supersonic cleaning jet, maximum cleaning performance can be achieved with minimum CO2 consumption. These features, as well as the possibility of direct supply with liquid CO2, qualify the process especially for automated applications. The solutions offered are versatile and range from mobile cleaning systems such as the JetWorker to ready-to-install cleaning modules and fully automated production platforms.

dry - residue-free - partial - environmentally friendly

Whether for use in connection with painting plastics, manufacturing precision mechatronic products, in electronics or the semiconductor or optical industry, in order to achieve high-quality results in coating, painting, joining or other processes, surfaces need to be free of particles, oils and grease.

your advantages
  • automation

    Together with the option of a direct supply of liquid CO2 these features make the process especially suitable for automated applications. We offer a wide variety of solutions, ranging from portable cleaning systems, such as the JetWorker, through ready-assembled cleaning modules, right up to fully-automated production platforms.

  • CO2 snow cleaning functional principles

    Dissolving of filmy residues (solvent-free)


    Rinsing (increase in volume of approx. 500x during sublimation)


    Embrittlement of the contamination through rapid cooling


    Detachment due to the transmitted forces of pressure and shearing

  • CO2 snow cleaning advantages
    • Dry cleaning process
    • Non-abrasive
    • Solvent free
    • Cleaning is non-dependent on material
    • Residue-free cleaning
    • Reduction in costs
    • Improves product quality and process efficiency
    • Enables one-piece flow and lean-production
    • Process fits well with the execution of the Smart Factory for Industry 4.0
    • Environmentally-friendly and non-toxic
  • Thinking of the environment

    Liquid CO2 is recovered as a by-product from the chemical industry and from biodigestors. Using CO2 as a cleaning agent replaces toxic cleaning agents. Kinder to you and the environment!
