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

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

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

Since dry ice blasting provides moisture less cleaning, servicing electrical equipment has tremendous advantages. From electric motors, various contaminants can be removed from:

  • Housings
  • Stators
  • Wiring
  • Windings

CO2 blasting can also be used on:

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

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
  • Molds
  • Mixing Equipment
  • Packaging Equipment
  • Glue Heads
  • Ovens

Advantages for using CO2 blasting include:

  • Molds will not be damaged since dry ice is non-abrasive
  • Effective on both hot and cold surfaces
  • Effective on both plastic and metal surfaces
  • Safe to use around electrical equipment

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 mold 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)

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

  • Electrical Equipment
  • Permanent Molds
  • Core Boxes
  • Screen and Slot Vents
  • Die-casting Machines
  • Mixers
  • Hydraulic Power Units

Dry Ice cleaning saves time and money in the pharmaceutical industry, used for maintenance:

  • Capsule production machines
  • Tablet press machines
  • Emulsifying and coating the tablet
  • Homogenizer
  • Mixers
  • Disconnectors
  • Granulator
  • Drying equipment
  • Carrying straps
  • Packaging machines
  • Containers

ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines are extremely effective in cleaning valuable public and private monuments and historic buildings. Some applications include:

  • Metals
  • Grave Markers
  • Mosaics
  • Murals
  • Stones
  • Statues

ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines have a wide range of cleaning applications in the general maintenance industry. For example:

  • Manfans
  • Tools
  • Assembly Lines
  • Extruders
  • Production Tools
  • Oven Bands
  • Mixers
  • Ovens
  • Hydraulic Power Equipment

ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines have specific solution for applications in the plastics industry that include the reduction or removal of:

  • Release Agents
  • Product Residues
  • Glue Heads
  • Out Gassing Issues
  • Mold Damage
  • Gloss Levels

ICEsonic dry ice blasting machines have a wide range of cleaning applications in the transportation industry.

  • Elevators
  • Lokomotive
  • Wagons
  • Buses
  • Trucks
  • Ships
  • Aircraft
  • Cars

  • Elevators
  • Escalators
  • Ventilation / air conditioning systems
  • Facades
  • Graffiti
  • Construction Equipment
  • Molds

Printing requires tremendous maintenance, and finding effective solutions for minimizing expenses are extremely valuable.

  • Machinery and support equipment
  • Dryers and Drums
  • Dried ink
  • Coatings
  • Paper dust
  • Spray powders
  • Grease
  • Oil

Dry ice blasting can reduce a full day’s cleaning job down to an hour’s time. It also provides a far more thorough cleaning to other traditional methods thereby increasing machine life for chains and gripper bars, fans and electric motors. In addition, since the presses can be cleaner, their resale value can be considerably greater.
