Energy & Power Generator Ice Blasting

Interstate Carbonic offers dry ice blasting services for energy and power generation industries. Dry ice blasting allows installed and in-place motors, generators and electronics, and radiators to be cleaned without disassembling or removing it. Dry ice blasting eliminates the dirt while eliminating harmful solvents and secondary waste. Reduces labor-consuming scrapping, the danger of moving heavy equipment to a cleaning area, the possibility of insulation damage from tools during cleaning, drying time from solvents or water, and cleanup of the secondary waste. Our team performs our dry ice blasting service for energy industries in the Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana area.

Heat Transfer Equipment

Dry ice blasting cleans energy generation equipment in order to maintain stable operation. Dirt filled heat transfer equipment can overheat and be prone to unscheduled and forced shutdowns. And downtime for cleaning means lower to NO productivity. Dry ice blasting allows units to be cleaned in-place without damage to thin gauge fins and tubes, with no use of liquids or caustic solvents.

Turbine Cleaning

Dry ice blast technology is gentle, yet it’s powerful enough to perform wind turbine cleaning. The turbine blades range in progressive sizes, and are precision machined. Dry ice blast cleaning can clean built up deposits and other foreign matter without damaging or distorting the blades.

Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting Include:

Dry Ice Blasting Has Been Used Successfully In Maintaining The Following Energy Generation Equipment:

  • Ammonia Injection Grids
  • Fin Tubes
  • IsoPhase Bus Cleaning
  • Motor Control Centers
  • MPT/GSU Coolers
  • Radiators
  • Substations
  • Switchgear
  • Switchyard Insulators, Breakers, Capacitor Banks
  • Transformers

Our CO2 cleaning services effectively ensure that your turbines, substations, and other generation machines are in the best condition.

  • What is dry ice blasting?

    Dry ice blasting is similar to sandblasting, bead blasting, or soda blasting where a media is accelerated in a pressurized air stream (or other inert gas) to impact and clean a surface.

  • How does the process work?

    Unlike other blast media, dry ice has a temperature of -109°F (-78.3°C). Because of the temperature difference between the dry ice particles and the surface being treated, thermal shock occurs during the process of dry ice blasting. This causes a breakdown of the bond between two dissimilar materials.

  • What happens to the contaminate?

    Contaminants can be dry, wet, hard or soft. Dry contaminates will break up into small chips and can be swept up or vacuumed. If the particles are large enough, they do not become airborne. If the contaminate is wet, such as grease or oils, the stream will move or push the liquid away much like a high pressure water stream would, except that the surface where the contaminate was will be dry and clean. To prevent redeposition, the operator should work in a methodical way, from the top down.
