In any environment that generates scale, soot, grease or oil residue, dry ice cleaning is the appropriate choice. Not only is removal quick and complete but most mechanisms need not be disassembled, saving time and money. In certain cases equipment can be left running to achieve the most thorough cleaning possible, all without solvents or abrasives.
We have had great success in the locomotive and automobile industries with general cleaning and removing several layers of paint to expose welds for testing. The process, when properly applied by our experts, meets all ASME standards.
One of the greatest advantages of dry ice cleaning is found in removing soot and grime from electrical components, in particular fans and motors. Because the process doesn’t involve a liquid phase it is very effective in these situations, saving disassembly costs and downtime. Furthermore, regular cleaning tends to dramatically extend the life of these components.
