- Save time on shutdowns
Due to the unique properties of dry ice it does not contain any moisture, the contaminants that are removed remain dry, leaving a light dust that can be easily vacuumed or even captured in filters while the job is in progress.
- Minimal clean up and waste disposal
There is little additional cleanup after the cleaning is completed. This significantly reduces waste disposal costs and in some cases completely eliminates them.
- On site cleaning eliminates equipment damage caused by transportation.
- Shortens outages
As the process is dry it eliminates the need to erect ovens and drying equipment for days to dry windings.
- No harmful chemical used
The process also reduces health & safety issues associated with the use of harmful chemicals and also the reduced the risk of injuries trying to clean difficult places.
- More cleaning can be achieved during a shutdown
The need for major disassembly and reassembly of equipment is significantly reduced and often completely eliminated. This cuts equipment downtime dramatically.
- Minimal health and safety issues.
With a wide variety of shapes of nozzles, it is possible to access and thoroughly clean hard to reach places where human hands cannot or should not go.
- Equipment can be re-energized as soon as cleaning is finished
As dry ice is a dry process electrical equipment can be tested and re-energized as soon as the cleaning is completed. IRS has never had a reported failure from any projects over the last 14 years.
