The many ways in which dry ice blasting can be used is what makes it so handy. As a world renown producer of oil and gas, Alberta’s fossil fuel industries make good use of dry ice blasting. The equipment used to extract oil is inevitably bound to get grimy and dirty. When it comes to cleaning, dry ice blasting can make a huge difference in efficiency and functionality.
Heavy oils, bitumen, and corroding agents can all be effectively removed from piping, valves, and other related equipment using dry ice blasting. Often, this cleaning process can even be done while the system in still operating. That’s great news, especially since contaminants like oils can literally become baked onto the equipment over time due to constant exposure to heat. In these scenarios, dry ice blasting is by far the superior cleaning method, and may even be the only option.
The pellets used in dry ice blasting are non toxic and safe for the environment. Alternative cleaning agents usually contains harmful toxins which can wind up in the surrounding ecosystem or the local water supply. Eliminate this danger and its associated waste containment by opting for dry ice blasting.
You want your equipment to be up and running in an effective and efficient manner. Built up gunk and grime can drastically slow equipment functionality. Therefore, it is in your best interest to keep it clean, reducing downtime and maximizing the profit that can be made.
Dry ice blasting is safe to use on more delicate equipment surfaces such as turbines. The pellets have been optimized to remove the contaminate while leaving the equipment surface undamaged. The pellets will also dissipate upon contact and therefore won’t ricochet around.
Oil and gas is one of the leading industries in Alberta. Workers rely on their equipment being clean and functioning properly.
