Green light on Linde CRYOCLEAN®Snow application technology
On January 26th 2016, Linde Korea clinched a deal with Plakor Co., Ltd, a global leader in automotive plastics offering a complete solution to plastic automotive applications, to supply liquid CO2 for Asan plant.
Plakor is a company that produces car bumpers and internal plastic parts for Hyundai and Kia Motor as primary partner. Previously they have used air guns to clean the product surface prior to the painting process.
Fully understanding customer’s situation and requirements, Linde Korea’s application sales team approached and explained the advantages CRYOCLEAN®Snow application to their operation. With technical and equipment support from REA, Linde Korea successfully completed line tests for 3 times at Asan plant and evaluated the effectiveness of the CRYOCLEAN®Snow application.
Comparing to the current process as well as the newly considered application (wiper cleaning method), the results has shown that Linde’s CRYOCLEAN®Snow application had dramatically reduced the number of defective products. In addition, the test results have demonstrated and confirmed to the customer that there are many benefits to customers when applying the application; low operating cost and maintenance effort, etc. As a result of the hard work and resilience, Linde Korea sold the CRYOCLEAN®Snow application and also won a 7-year liquid CO2 supply contact with Asan plant.
Based on the current status and installation schedule, we expect to bring volume sales of 40 tons per month of liquid CO2 and a revenue over 1 billion won over the contract duration starting from April 2016. In addition, Plakor is positive about applying CRYOCLEAN®Snow application plants elsewhere within the country as well as globally in Czech Republic.
