In addition to safely and effectively cleaning wiring, hosing and similar materials, ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines can reduce or remove the following contaminants from equipment:

  • Spray-On Foam Insulation
  • Sealants and Coatings
  • Carbons
  • Grease
  • Oil

Power Generators

ICEsonic dry ice blasting provides maintenance on electric power generation equipment:

  • Generators
  • Turbines
  • Stators
  • Rotors
  • Compressors
  • Boilers
  • HRSGs

Electrical

ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines provide moistureless cleaning. Therefore, creating tremendous advantages when it comes to servicing electrical equipment, which include:

  • Electric Motors
  • Circuit Breakers and Boards
  • Electric Production Equipment
  • Electric Control Cabinets
  • Circuit Breakers and Boards

Food Processing

ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines are safe, non-toxic, and do not release any harmful gases or secondary waste into the environment. ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines can be used on the following:

  • Conveyors
  • Moulds
  • Mixing Equipment
  • Packaging Equipment
  • Glue Heads
  • Ovens

Restoration

Dry ice blasting is far superior to the cleaning methods typically used. It provides commercial owners the ability to dramatically reduce downtime and, thereby, reduce costs. This, of course, is of great interest to insurance companies also. Following is a list of how CO2 blasting can be of benefit:

  • Costs related to business interruption can be lessened
  • Length of business interruption can be shortened (quicker cleaning; furniture and equipment doesn’t have to be moved)
  • Black mould can be eliminated from wood structures

 

Dry ice blasting can help restore the following:

  • Mold Remediation
  • Fire Restoration (soot & smoke damage removal)
  • Historic Preservation (for delicate surfaces)

Foundries

ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines have been found to be extremely effective in the foundry industry. Some applications include:

  • Electrical Equipment
