Decreased downtime and increased productivity with cleaning in
With Ortech dry ice blast cleaning, the equipment can be cleaned
in-place even it is hot thereby eliminating the time-consuming
and labour-intensive steps that are required with other traditional
method which includes:
cool down, disassembly, transport of the
equipment to and from a dedicated cleaning area, reassembly,reheating
time, etc. Thus, this technique decreases the downtime for cleaning
from hours to minutes.
2. Reduces waste disposal
With traditional cleaning methods like sand, solvent, steamjet,
waterjet, etc the cleaning agent itself becomes a secondary contaminant
and must be disposed of as toxic waste along with primary contaminant.
However, with Ortech dry ice blast cleaning the dry ice pellet
after impact sublimates and goes back to atmosphere without leaving
any waste of its own, the only waste created is the contaminant
itself. This eliminates significant cost and concern for waste
3. Extend equipment life by eliminating damage to the
Conventional cleaning method such as sand blasting, glass bead,
steel scrapers, brushes and the like leave an abrasive effect
on the surface. However, Ortech dry ice blast cleaning uses pellets
that are 2 Mohs hard ensuring aggressive but non-abrasive cleaning
of surface thus extends equipment / tooling / component life.
4. Faster and cleans more thoroughly
Ortech dry ice blast cleaning equipments have extremely high cleaning
speeds that clean thoroughly, and even normally inaccessible parts
can be rapidly cleaned that are difficult to reach by hand, brushes
or chemicals. This reduces tremendous man-power requirement and
cost associated with it.
5. Compact, versatile and saves space
Ortech dry ice blast cleaning equipment being portable / handy
can be taken conveniently to the large object to be cleaned and
not the other way round. This eliminates the space for dedicated
6. Non toxic, non hazardous and safe cleaning
Ortech dry ice blast cleaning uses dry ice that is non-toxic and
as no hazardous chemicals or solvents are used in dry ice blasting,
the operators / workers are not exposed to hazardous fumes and
other dangers during cleaning as encounter in traditional cleaning
7. Non corrosive, non conductive dry cleaning
Ortech dry ice blast cleaning is non-corrosive and non-conductive
as it cleans thoroughly and leaves equipment dry. It does not
require water, chemicals, or lubricants for cleaning hence it
is the perfect cleaning solution for electrical equipment and
other water-sensitive applications.
8. Ecologically friendly cleaning
Ortech dry ice blast cleaning is truly and completely environment
friendly as the system uses C02 which is by-product of other industrial
processes. If not used it would otherwise be emitted to the atmosphere,
thus the process does not produce or contribute additional C02
to environment. In fact our process uses reclaimed C02 that is
converted into usable product.
9. Impede bacterial and mold (fungi) growth
Dry ice with its extremely low temperature of -79° C is actually
a natural impeder / inhibitor of bacterial and fungal growth.
It kills bacteria and mold (fungi) instantly upon contact. Thus,when
it cleans, it infact disinfects without the aid of additional
