Hydro Utilities, Power Generation & Substation Cleaning

Electrical dry ice cleaning projects offer a safe, effective and fast way to complete maintenance on electrical and power

generation equipment. Dry ice cleaning projects include generators, turbines, stators, windings, rotors, compressors, boilers, transformers, bushings, line insulators, switchgear, penstocks, grounding reactors and radiators.

Cleaning your power generation equipment with dry ice cleaning will greatly reduce the chance of a catastrophic failure. It will also improve megohm readings, increase polarization indices and improve thermal dissipation.

Since dry ice cleaning provides a non-conductive moisture free cleaning, it has tremendous advantages when servicing electrical equipment. Some electrical equipment can be cleaned online without costly downtime. Preventative maintenance schedules can also be set up to improve system reliability.

Dry Ice Cleaning Electrical Equipment


Dry ice cleaning is ideal for removing tar and grime buildup, grease, carbon and regular dust buildup on conveyors, crushers, motors, radiators, vents, screens, pumps and bearings. *Ask about our vacuum blast systems.

Pulp, Paper & Lumber Processing

Dry ice cleaning offers several advantages in the wood processing industry. When cleaning is done, it can reduce the risk of fire and dust explosions. Clean equipment is critical in this industry to increase productivity and preventative maintenance projects. Dry ice cleaning can also remove heavy pitch, glue, paint, calcium and black liquor buildup on all types of wood processing equipment.

Dry ice cleaning services are available for the following equipment:

  • Veneer presses
  • Dryers
  • Crowns
  • Vents
  • Conveyors
  • Gears
  • Filters
  • Pulleys
  • Bearings
  • Stackers
  • Lathes
Avoid fires and explosion hazards with a regular cleaning schedule

Oil and Gas: Gas Processing & Pumping Equipment

Dry ice cleaning is used extensively for oil and gas cleaning applications with great success. Dry ice cleaning is far superior to traditional cleaning methods as it is a dry process that doesn’t create secondary wastes. It reduces or eliminates the need for toxic solvents, and it also keeps you from having to clean up and dispose of blasting media, which is often a difficult task.

Dry ice cleaning:

  • Can effectively remove heavy oils, bitumen, corrosion inhibitor chemicals etc. from piping, valves, wellheads and other related equipment. This can be done hot, “online” or while the equipment is being used. As contaminates can become literally baked on over time, dry ice cleaning is one of the only options.
  • Can effectively clean the interiors of tanks, pipes and vessels.
  • Is far superior to other cleaning methods such as steam cleaning as there is no “dry time” or secondary contaminant to deal with.
  • Eliminates the potential for sand and other grit media to enter processing equipment.
  • Reduces equipment downtime.
  • Eliminates the need for masking and tarping other equipment, and the costs associated with waste collection and containment are eliminated.

Food Manufacturing

Dry ice cleaning plays a major role in the food industry. Its sanitizing ability is far superior for equipment than traditional cleaning methods, and it does the work in a fraction of the time. It successfully removes baked on residues in ovens, as well as uncooked products from mixing equipment.


  • Effective on hot or cold surfaces
  • Eliminates risk of contamination from things like wire bristles
  • Reduces downtime
  • Eliminates harsh chemicals
  • Because this is a dry cleaning process, it can safely and effectively be used where water blasting can cause problems
  • Very effective in thoroughly cleaning all types of meat processing plants
  • Allergen contaimination can be eliminated

Dry ice cleaning services are available for the following equipment:

  • Waffle and cereal molds
  • Ovens
  • Conveyors
  • Mixers

Disaster Recovery & Restoration

Commonly used in residential restoration and abatement projects – but most often commercial and industrial – dry ice cleaning allows for soot and smoke damage to be easily removed from most surfaces. It is also being recognized as a natural fit in mould remediation, predominantly as a labour saving tool which replaces scrapers, heat guns and chemical applications. When the outermost layer of wood is to be removed, dry ice cleaning is faster than sanding and is far superior at getting into corners, joints and gaps in the wood. This is not only a very attractive option to property and business owners but it is also the #1 choice for insurance companies.

  • Black mould can be removed from wooden surfaces
  • Removes soot and smoke damage
  • Restores a clean appearance
  • No secondary waste is generated
