BENEFIT #1 Decreased Downtime through Cleaning In-Place
Typical cleaning procedures require that equipment be disassembled and moved to an assigned area for proper cleaning. That is not the case with dry ice blasting. Equipment can be cleaned in-place and hot in most situations. Because of that, many time-consuming, labor-intensive steps which were required with other methods such as sand blasting can be eliminated including:

Cool down
Transport of the equipment to and
    from a dedicated cleaning area

Reheating time
Dry ice blasting can shorten the downtime for
    cleaning from days down to hours.

BENEFIT #2 Faster and More Thorough Cleaning
With dry ice blast cleaning, a superior clean can be achieved while reducing hours when compared to scrubbing with abrasive pads or wire brushes. A tremendous labor savings is accomplished. In addition, dry ice blasting cleans in crevices that can't be reached by hand. As a result, equipment runs more efficiently and potential leaks are revealed possibly preventing major system failures.

BENEFIT #3 Elimination of Equipment Damage
Dry ice blasting often eliminates equipment damage. Other cleaning methods such as sandblasting leave an aggressive and abrasive effect on the surface. They can actually remove part of the surface, changing the surface structure considerably. Dry ice is non-abrasive to surfaces and does not change a surface's structure. It lifts the contaminants away. Secondly, because equipment can now be cleaned in place, potential damage from moving equipment to and from a dedicated cleaning area is also eliminated.

BENEFIT #4 Reduction or Elimination of Solvents
Dry ice blasting uses no solvents, but instead uses harmless CO2 pellets. This can be a critical need for certain companies in order to comply with environmental regulations or to improve worker safety. There are no issues pertaining to toxicity.

BENEFIT #5 Reductions in Waste Disposal
With other cleaning methods, whether its solvents, sand blasting or some other means, the cleaning agent becomes a secondary contaminant and must be disposed of as toxic waste along with the primary contaminant. However, with dry ice blast cleaning the CO2 pellets sublimate upon contact, the only waste created is the contaminant itself. This alone can result in significant waste reduction.

BENEFIT #6 Increased Safety
Dry ice blasting pellets are non-toxic, non-hazardous creating advantages to the environment, your employees, and production facility:

No secondary waste
Safe for the environment
Safe for employees
Safe for end products
Safe for equipment
Non conductive
