Dry ice blasting for Power Generation

Dry ice blasting cleaning services are the ideal choice for cleaning delicate electrical generation equipment. There's no need for equipment disassembly or relocation, which cuts on expensive downtime and potential employee injuries. Solutions do not use tools or chemical solvents, eliminating the possibility of insulation damage.

The dry ice blasting process uses pellets of solid CO2, which are shot at the surface at supersonic speeds. The pellets sublimate (or immediately change from a solid to a gas) on contact with the surface, creating tiny explosions that loosen contaminants. This process is completely non-abrasive, and is delicate enough to clean motors, generators, and electronics without fear of harming the equipment.

Dry ice blasting applications have been used to clean the following power generation equipment:

  • Switch gears
  • Turbines
  • Windings
  • Transformers
  • Substations
  • Line insulators
  • Compressors and generators
  • AC/DC motors
  • Circuit breakers
  • Rotors
  • Stators
  • Field frames
