A CHEAPER CLEAN
Cryogenesis ®'s expandable dry ice pellets cost between 15 and 30 cents a pound and the system uses between 100 to 150 lbs/hr. More is expended for tough paint stripping jobs, less for oil film and clinging dirt removal. The dry ice cleaning medium is chemically neutral, electrically non-conductive and totally non-abrasive. There are absolutely no secondary wastes (nothing added), and the material being removed generally becomes light dry dust that can be easily vacuumed and captured in filters even while the job is in process. Therefore, there is little additional clean up after the blasting job is completed. There is rarely any need for a sand blasting booth either; therefore some cleaning jobs can be accomplished with equipment still in operation -- without disturbing plant productivity.
Since there is nothing added to the waste stream, nothing at all, the costs and the potential liabilities of waste disposal are significantly reduced; and in many applications completely eliminated. Both job and long term costs then are significantly lower than conventional methods.
A FASTER CLEAN
Cryogenesis ® cleans at sand blasting rates, in most cases. Since there is rarely any need for disassembly/reassembly and no need for further cleanup after the process is completed, the required equipment down time is very short. Due to the nature of the cleaning process (at the end of a long skinny wand), it is easy to rapidly access, and thoroughly clean hard-to-reach places where human hands cannot, or should not go.
A SAFER CLEAN
Cryogenesis ® is a non-destructive and naturally safe (to both humans and objects being cleaned) cleaning/coating removal. It uses chemically inert/neutral, electrically non-conductive dry ice pellets (called Drice). Drice have no sharp edges to cut the skin or change/degrade substrates and can be pharmaceutical grade clear & pure. No chemicals, no abrasives, no electrical energy, no sparks, no heat, no high pressure fluids, no secondary waste streams; all contribute to a greatly reduced risk to the equipment being cleaned, to the personnel doing the cleaning and to our environment.
