Dry Ice Cleaning is safe to use on electrical equipment, as it will not damage delicate electrical components. It is also water free, and therefore non-conductive; in certain situations we will clean energized equipment. And unlike other cleaning methods, it will remove dirt, oil and carbon from the nooks and crannies – and will not leave a residue. For these reasons, it has become the only acceptable method for cleaning heavy electrical apparatus.
Scrub Zero technicians have in the past cleaned equipment such as hydro generating equipment
(stators and rotors), transformers, substations, control panels, de-energized switchgear, energized
cables, motors and windings. Scrub Zero works with companies like Turbocare Canada in many industrial environments:
“Turbocare Canada frequently subcontracts Scrub Zero to clean generators and turbines at clients’ facilities. Dirty electrical apparatus will overheat and be prone to arc-overs. Dry ice blast cleaning has become the standard for cleaning this and other equipment in our industry. Turbocare Canada recommends Scrub Zero Dry Ice Blasting with enthusiasm, and plan on hiring them again for future projects.”

With dry ice cleaning, you eradicate dirt while eliminating the vats of solvent, labor consuming disassembly, moving heavy apparatus to the cleaning area, laborious cleaning with the possibility of insulation damage by hand tools during cleaning, drying time from organic solvents or water from a pressure washer or steam jet, and cleanup of the dirty solvent or water.
