Cryogenic Systems & Parts the leading manufacturer of cryogenic deflashing equipment, and the only manufacturer of cryogenic deflashing equipment approved by the U.S. government. CS&P's web site introduces the company's new automatic basket dump on its SCC 1500, a touch screen control station, titanium throwing wheel paddles, a stainless steel core door seal material, an insulated SWECO separator and a new back panel with additional safety features.
Cryogenic high speed shot blast deflashing is a process used by the rubber industry to remove flash from molded rubber parts. The process uses liquid nitrogen, high speed rotation and media (shot blast) in varying combinations to remove the flash in a highly precise, economical and expedient manner. New generation cryogenic deflashing machines offer such options as programmable controllers.
Technical data sheets, specifications, product photographs and general information are provided in the web site on CS&P's Model MCC 750 1.3 cu. ft./37 liter basket style machine, the Model SCC 1500 3 cu. ft./85 liter basket style machine, the Model LBC 4000 8 cu. ft./227 liter basket style machine and the Model LCC 6000 6 cu.ft./170 liter belt style machine.
For companies with small batch, low volume needs to companies with large batch, high volume needs, CS&P offers a complete inventory of spare parts in stock. Most orders are shipped the same day they are received. CS&P offers demo machines for customers to test their parts, and offers in-house and on-site training, operations and maintenance classes, www.cryomatic.com
