Automotive

Dry ice blasting can be performed on-line without disassembly. The non-abrasive dry ice blasting system easily removes grease, sludge, sealant and weld slag from equipment. Dry ice blasting does not generate any secondary waste or leave any residual media to clean up.

Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting Include:

  • Food Grade CO2 will not contaminate food or equipment
  • Approved by the FDA, EPA and USDA and has been effectively used in AIB inspected facilities
  • Molds will not be damaged since dry ice is non-abrasive
  • Effective on hot, cold, plastic and metal surfaces
  • Cleaning can take place while ovens are still on
  • Cleans production ovens without dis-assembly

Dry ice blasting can also be used for:

  • Spray Booths
  • General Maintenance
  • Coreboxes
  • Permanent Molds
  • Tire Molds
  • Seats & Gasket Molds
  • Sealing System Molds
  • Engine Blocks & Accessories
  • Pistons
  • Manfans
  • Coils
  • Cylinder Heads
  • Sensors & Computer Components

Food Manufacturing/Processing

Dry ice blasting allows installed and in-place equipment to be cleaned without the need to break it down and remove it from a production line. Bakery ingredients, grease, and oil can all removed without contamination. Dry ice blasting is safe to use around electrical panels and it will not short-circuit motors or switches. Using dry ice blasting as the cleaning process in food processing eliminates the use of water, which inhibits the growth of bacteria and will not damage bearings and other components. Dry ice cleaning has been effectively used in AIB inspected facilities.

Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting Include:

  • Food Grade CO2 will not contaminate food or equipment
  • Approved by the FDA, EPA and USDA and has been effectively used in AIB inspected facilities
  • Molds will not be damaged since dry ice is non-abrasive
  • Effective on hot, cold, plastic and metal surfaces
  • Cleaning can take place while ovens are still on
  • Cleans production ovens without disassembly

Dry ice blasting can also be used for:

  • Mixing Equipment
  • Uncooked Residues
  • Packaging Equipment
  • Conveyors
  • Dryers
  • Freezers
  • Glue Head Residues
  • Baked On Oven Residues
  • Mixing Equipment
  • Ventilation Equipment
  • Electric Motors
  • Floors, Ceilings & Walls
  • Food Storage Rooms & Equipment

General Plant Maintenance

Dry ice blasting can be used to clean production equipment or factories:

Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting Include:

  • Greatly decreases cleaning setup and start-up times
  • Diminishes the risk of damage to expensive equipment
  • Reduces hourly labor costs for cleaning
  • Reduces downtime by eliminating need for teardown or movement of equipment

Dry Ice Blasting Has Been Effectively Used In The General Maintenance Industry By Removing The Following Contaminates:

  • Oil • Gum • Ink • Grease • Metallic Weld Slag • Insoluble Overspray • Adhesives •
  • Petroleum • Tar • Mold • Resins • Paint • Soot • Decals •

Marine & Boating

Dry ice blasting eliminates the time-consuming task of hand scraping and sanding boat hulls. It is more environmentally friendly then traditional pressure washing with solvents because it leaves no secondary waste. Dry ice blasting also sanitizes the surface which reduces marine re-growth.

Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting Include:

  • Sanitizes the underwater surface reducing marine re-growth (sea slime, algae, mussels, etc)
  • Ecologically safe, no secondary waste and harmless to marine life
  • Removes anti-foul coatings
  • Marine systems will perform longer with maintained cleaning

Dry ice blasting can clean marine vessels safely in or out of the water:

  • Aluminum & Fiberglass
  • Ship Hulls
  • Water Intake Valves
  • Electrical Panels
  • Exhaust Systems
  • Engines
  • Tanks

Plastics Manufacturing

Dry ice blasting removes hardened plastic, mold release agents, and plastic build-up. Dry ice blasting does not require the disassembly of the molds. Dry ice blast cleaning uses no solvents and leaves a smooth surface, which prevents damage to the finished product surface.

Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting Include:

  • Completely cleans plastic molds without damage
  • Cleaning can take place while Mold is still curing
  • No disassembly of equipment (molds from press)
  • Increases production time by reducing downtime
  • Removes paraffin build-up that can cause imperfections

Below Are Some Of The Manufacturing Equipment That Dry Ice Blasting Has Been Used Effectively On:

  • Blow And Injection Mold Cavities
  • Glue Heads And Gluers
  • Packaging Equipment
  • Extruder Screws
  • Ovens
  • Mixers

Energy

Dry ice blasting allows installed and in-place motors, generators and electronics to be cleaned without disassembling or removing it. Dry ice blasting eliminates the dirt while eliminating harmful solvents and secondary waste. Reduces labor-consuming scrapping, the danger of moving heavy equipment to a cleaning area, the possibility of insulation damage from tools during cleaning, drying time from solvents or water, and cleanup of the secondary waste.

Generators

Dry ice blasting cleans electrical generating equipment in order to maintain stable operation. Dirty electrical apparatus can overheat and be prone to arc-overs. And downtime for cleaning means lower plant productivity. Dry ice blasting allows units to be cleaned in-place without damage to cables and insulation, and no explosive solvents.

Turbines

Dry ice blast technology is gentle, yet powerful enough to clean turbines. The turbine blades range in progressive sizes, and are precision machined. Dry ice blast cleaning can clean built up deposits and other foreign matter without damaging or distorting the blades.

Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting Include:

  • Eliminated or reduced power interruptions to customers
  • Improved system reliability
  • Switching not required improving overall safety
  • Cleaning can be done anytime of the year

Being Proactive In The Maintenance Of Electrical Equipment Can Help Avoid Failures. Dry Ice Blasting Has Been Used Successfully In Maintaining The Following Power Generation Equipment:

  • Switch Gear
  • Turbines
  • Windings
  • Transformers
  • Substations
  • Motor Control Centers and buses
