Dirt, tar & grease can cause industrial machinery to fail by clogging gearing, filters, screens etc. and can hide the cause of the fault. Ice blasting will remove these and other contaminants with ease ensuring the fault can be found quickly e.g leaking seal or valve. Downtime of the equipment is kept to a minimum and production can be started again immediately - no requirement for machine to be left to dry off. Ice blasting - particularly dry ice - is non conductive and does not leave any secondary waste.
With ice blasting, machinery does not require to be switched off during cleaning as the process can be applied whilst machinery is running - again saving on down-time.
