Customer Benefits Of Using The CleanBlast Service

Experiences crews and state of the art technology offer significant tangible customer benefits over the traditional cleaning options of water, chemicals, sand, bead, or other grit compounds. Some of these significant benefits include:

Environmentally Safe-- Dry ice blast cleaning is safe, non-toxic, non flammable, non-conductive, and approved for industrial use by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Federal Drug Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Reduced Material, Labor & Disposal Costs-- No Disassembly is required for equipment and/or fixture cleaning. Also re-greasing or rinsing is not necessary after every cleaning. Clean up and resulting disposal and labor expenses are minimized since there is no secondary cleaning media added to the waste stream.

Enhanced Productivity & Time Efficiency-- Our cleaning process is non-conductive, non-additive, and dry. No down time for disassembly, cooling, or masking is required prior to starting the actual cleaning process.

Extended Life of Capital Equipment Investment-- The primary surface is not abraded by the dry ice cleaning process. Only the coating, residue, or contaminate is removed thereby enhancing the longevity of equipment operation.

Enhanced Quality Control & Reduced Consumer Liability Risks-- The CleanBlast service eliminates the problem of having cleaning compounds such as grit, nut shells, or other contaminates in the manufacturer's or processor's end products, machinery components, or surrounding areas.

Reduced Worker Safety Liability Risks-- The dry ice pellets vaporize back into the atmosphere thereby eliminating the worker health hazards of silicosis or toxic inhalation which can occur during sand blasting or other conventional chemical cleaning processes.

With The CO2CLEANBLAST Cleaning System, you experience these benefits:
  • NO ABRASIVE EFFECTS - NO SUBSTRATE DAMAGE
    Even heavy, tar-like deposits are blasted loose as approximately 1/4" easy-to-manage chips. The metal, ceramic, and fiberglass structures or screens behind the deposits are unaffected. On painted surfaces, blast can be controlled to retain the primer coating.
  • NO POST BLAST MATERIAL RESIDUE TO CLEAN OR DISPOSE ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE
    CO2 pellets fired at high speed hit, blast deposits loose and vanish, leaving no residue -- except of course the heavy rust, deposit or coating they remove.
  • REDUCED OUT-OF-SERVICE TIME NO NEED TO STOP WORKING
    The CO2CLEANBLAST Cleaning System reduces out-of-service time of industrial cleaning by up to 75% because it is operationally quick, requires no dryout time, and no extra cleanup of post-blast waste.

    Dusting and particle-rebound do not occur as with abrasive blasting since the CO2CLEANBLAST Cleaning System's pellets dissipate upon contact with the surface. With the possible addition of ear protection, nearby work may usually continue.

  • NO DRYOUT TIME REQUIRED
    No scouring or flushing is required to remove last traces of cleaning agents before closing up.
  • EXPLOSION PROOF CLEANING
    No heat source.
  • CLEANING COVERAGE
    The CO2CLEANBLAST Cleaning System can be infinitely adjusted the size, volume and force behind the CO2 pellets are adjusted relative to the cleaning application. Even tight corners and hard-to-reach spots may be cleaned completely by simply varying the size and velocity of the CO2 pellet.
