The Benefits of Cleaning with Dry Ice/Environmental benefits of dry ice blasting – No Chemicals
The liquid carbon dioxide used to create our dry ice blasting pellets is a byproduct of other materials used in production, therefore reducing the impact that this process has on the environment.
By not using chemicals or solvents, dry ice cleaning is one of the best cleaning options for the environment.
- The need for chemical storage is eliminated.
- Employees are not exposed to dangerous chemical handling processes.
- Dry Ice Cleaning removes chemical residues left behind by other cleaning methods.
- There are no chemical disposal costs and several environmental benefits of dry ice blasting.
Due to the nature of our dry ice cleaning methods, the need for abrasive brushes and cleaners is removed.
Dry ice cleaning has obvious benefits over traditional sand blasting as moulds and dies will last much longer.
- Reduced wear as process is gentle and non-abrasive
- Highly effective in reaching areas other methods miss
- Ideal for moulds and dies that require smooth surfaces
Many regions in the Midwest are highly regulated when it comes to water use. Dry ice cleaning eliminates the need for using up our valuable water resources.
Dry ice cleaning is perfect for cleaning in an indoor environment where minimal humidity and air moisture are vital to industry operations.
- Reduces water consumption in water sensitive regions
- Dry ice sublimates on contact so no wet floors are left behind
- No water use means no change in relative humidity to affect other on site processes
Dry ice cleaning is versatile enough to reach places that normal industrial cleaning methods cannot. This reduces the need for machinery to be disassembled, therefore reducing the downtime needed for machines to be cleaned.
Businesses have shown that using the dry ice cleaning method has considerably cut down on CIP time annually and improved productivity.
- On site cleaning with mobile units reduces non operational time significantly
- No drying out time required
- Reduced dismantling of machinery means less downtime – CIP times reduced
