Top Equipment Cleaning Methods
When cleaning your industrial equipment, it is difficult to know which method is best suited for the job. While some cleaning methods may be perfectly fine for one type of equipment, the same method can be harmful or damaging to another. Here are a few of the top equipment cleaning methods we’ve found:
Vacuum Abrasive Blasting
Vacuum abrasive blasting is one of the most popular methods for cleaning equipment. A large vacuum is attached to a blasting nozzle, effectively cleaning many surfaces. The vacuum ensures that any dust or waste is efficiently cleaned up once the process is over. Vacuum abrasive blasting uses a variety of mediums including, but not limited to:
- Steel Grit
- Aluminum Oxide
While vacuum abrasive blasting easily takes care of the waste, the mediums used can be too abrasive for sensitive equipment, potentially leading to damage or harm.
Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting is a less abrasive, environmentally friendly method for cleaning your equipment. By using pressurized dry ice pellets, this cleaning method is the most gentle, ensuring the safety of even the most sensitive equipment. Dry Ice Blasting also leaves little, to no excess waste, making cleanup a breeze.
