How Dry Ice Blasting Can Help the Electrical Industry Forge Forward

How dry ice blasting can help the electrical industry Forge Forward

We’re sure that you are aware by now that incorporating dry ice into your business has major benefits, but did you know it could play a key role in allowing your electrical company to Forge Forward? Cleaning electrical equipment in a safe and effective manner can be time consuming and requires a high attention to detail, as well as time and money. However, it doesn’t have to be a burden. That’s where dry ice comes into play! 

What is dry ice blasting? 

Dry ice blasting can be defined as a modern non-abrasive cleaning method where dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide, is accelerated in a pressurized air stream and directed at a surface in order to clean it. What makes this different is that instead of turning into a liquid, it immediately converts into a gas in a process called sublimation. This cleaning method is highly sought after by many industries including the food, medical and fabrication industry to name a few. Using dry ice pellets allows the same, if not better, clean as other more harsh chemicals and tools, while ensuring a safe, less abrasive surface cleaning. 

Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting

  • No waste disposal
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Efficient and effective
  • Cost effective 
  • Non-toxic, non-abrasive and non-flammable 

Dry ice in the Electrical Industry

Electrical equipment typically requires routine maintenance, care and each component needs thorough cleaning regularly. In most cases, this equipment needs to be treated with an environmentally friendly cleaning, that meets the high health and safety standards within the industry. Dry ice blasting checks off all of the boxes and then some when it comes to the best clean possible. In the electrical industry, dry ice can clean equipment such as generators, steam generators, boilers, turbines, rotors, compressors and more. As previously mentioned, this process in non-abrasive, environmentally friendly and non-conductive when compared to other more traditional methods. Dry ice blasting dramatically reduces the cleaning time while providing a near perfect clean, resulting in faster time during, in between and after cleans – further reducing the overall cost. Not to mention, you won’t need as many hands on deck for this job, allowing your employees to be able to focus on other, more time consuming jobs. Dry ice blasting is easy to learn and takes less training time as well!
