Top 10 Reasons Dry Ice Cleaning Is Superior

  1. Superior clean: Fewer cleaning cycles means less downtime
  2. Machines can be cleaned in place: Dry ice cleaning is a dry process and usually requires no disassembly, which means much less downtime, labour and resources used
  3. Quicker clean: Less resource = More runtime = More profits
  4. Non-abrasive, non-flammable and nonconductive: Dry ice cleaning won't damage the substrates and can be used safely on electrical components
  5. No secondary waste clean-up: This not only saves additional cleanup labour and expense, but also means temporary containment areas may be reused or not required at all, which is an additional cost savings
  6. Can get into tight spaces that many other methods cannot
  7. Environmentally friendly, using 100% recycled CO2 material
  8. Operator safety: No exposure to cleaning chemicals, solvents or blast media grit
  9. Operator efficiency: Not as labour-intensive as traditional hand-cleaning methods
