If you own or manage an industrial facility, you know that these settings can get quite dirty very easily. As the manager, it is your job to make sure the facility stays clean and the equipment stays in good working order. Cleanliness, in turn, improves productivity and keeps your plant running smoothly. The next time you’re looking to have your industrial equipment cleaned, consider dry ice blasting. Here are 3 reasons to choose dry ice blasting over other cleaning methods.
Remove Dirt and Residue Quickly
Dry ice blasting works by using a compressor to shoot tiny, below-freezing pellets of dry ice at whatever residue is stuck on. A lot of the time, equipment can be cleaned without the need for time-consuming disassembly and reassembly. Dry ice is also extremely versatile: hard to reach areas and sensitive equipment can all be cleaned this way.
There is Less Downtime
One of the biggest reasons that plant managers decide to put off cleaning as long as possible is because there is a significant amount of downtime associated with most traditional cleaning methods. With dry ice blasting, the majority of the time-consuming elements of the cleaning process don’t apply. Most things don’t need to be taken apart or moved, and there’s no need to wait for it to dry off. All of these things together dramatically reduce the downtime from cleaning.
Eco-Friendly and Safe
Dry ice blasting is among the safest cleaning methods available in an industrial setting. Since dry ice is made by freezing carbon dioxide, the pieces of ice don’t even melt, they simply evaporate away. Dry ice is also free from heat, cleaning chemicals, or any other hazardous waste. Since hazardous cleaning chemicals must be inventoried with the rest of your hazardous materials, it’s nice to have such an easy way of cleaning without the use of harmful chemicals.
