Production facilities depend on cleanliness of machinery for a number of reasons, two of which are safety and efficiency. Oil buildup, soot, grease, dirt, contaminants of all varieties can foul the production facility and compromise productivity if not remediated correctly. Furthermore, the prolonged life of the expensive and vital machinery depends on this focus of cleanliness.
Polar Tiger has a solution for general maintenance that doesn’t rely on toxic chemicals or odiferous detergents. Instead, Polar Tiger cuts through the grime with a non-toxic, environmentally friendly process called Dry Ice Blast Cleaning.
Dry Ice Blast Cleaning involves utilizing the power of a common gas (CO2) in solid form – dry ice – and compressed air to practically erase common contaminants from machinery. The process includes the solid CO2 that is shot at high speed out of a nozzle at negative 109 degrees Fahrenheit. When the CO2 hits the contaminated area, the substance sublimates without producing any secondary waste.
Other blasting techniques utilize a solid substance, such as sand, soda, beads or walnut shells to blast away the grime, which leaves behind a mess. Dry Ice Blast Cleaning leaves behind no secondary waste that has to be cleaned up, causing further delay and cost. Also, when using the Dry Ice Blast Cleaning technique, there is no need to dismantle machinery or wait for it to cool down. This is why downtime is so significantly reduced with Polar Tiger’s Dry Ice Blast Cleaning technique.
Surface areas aren’t only cleared of oil, grease, dirt and other contaminants, they’re also cleared of harmful bacteria, which means Polar Tiger cleans and sanitizes at the same time.
A common problem with other blast cleaning like soda or sand blasting is wear and tear on machinery parts. Polar Tiger’s method is nonabrasive and doesn't leave secondary waste behind. In fact, it’s so gentle and non-conductive that it can be used around sensitive parts like motors, switches and wires.
Polar Tiger’s solution is perfect for general maintenance and facilities because it’s effective on ceilings and walls, a great variety of production equipment, forklifts, hydraulic parts, robotics, control panels – you get it dirty, Polar Tiger can clean it.
Here is just a handful of areas Polar Tiger can tackle with Dry Ice Blast Cleaning technology: de-aerator, storage tank, cooling fan, electric motor, cleans surfaces prior to painting, conveyor, molds, pipes and hoses.
An increasing number of production facilities are finding that Dry Ice Blast Cleaning practically pays for itself. Please contact Polar Tiger and get started on improved productivity and cost savings.
