LaGrange, IL (February 28, 2019) . . . iD Additives, Inc., a leading North American supplier of additives including foaming agents, purging compounds and liquid color and additive systems to the plastics industry, has introduced a new system for removing rust from internal cooling passages. The system is ideal for use with the company’s recently introduced rust removal and preventative product, iD Eco-Pro 360, that provides fast, eco-friendly rust removal on injection molds, blown film dies, and other products. It can also be used with other liquid cleaning agents.

The new iD Eco-Pro 360 Cart is a pump and filter combination unit. It removes, protects, and helps prevent rust within cooling passages, heat exchangers, and water lines. The built-in filter function allows the Eco-Pro 360 solution to remain at peak performance for optimal reusability.

“This new product is ideal for cleaning rust out of hard-to-reach internal channels, such as water lines in an injection mold,” said Nick Sotos, President of iD Additives. “It is perfect for the maintenance departments of molding facilities.”

Features and benefits of the new iD Eco-Pro 360 Cart include:

  • No rubber seals/components for chemicals to break down

  • Runs off of compressed air, no electrical connections needed

  • When used with iD Eco-Pro 360, no water is needed

  • Operating capacity is 5 to 55 gallons

  • Unit can be supplied with HDPE plastic drum for iD Eco-Pro 360 (various sizes available)
