Large Electric motors can be cleaned onsite without chemicals effectively removing contamination from areas such as windings without damaging the underlying varnish, increasing efficiency and minimising risks. Turbines are also regularly cleaned to allow for NDT to be performed quickly and easily in a fraction of the time, without the worker injuries and potential damage to the equipment. Electrical industry users and users of electrical equipment face a constant battle with maintenance, efficiency and equipment uptime. Vortex dry ice cleaning technology meets those challenges by restoring both rotational and stationary electrical equipment to peak performance with dramatically shorter outages. Due to growing demand for electricity, some equipment such as pad-mounted switchgears, and substations, go without maintenance for extended periods. This results in less efficient operation, and more unplanned outages caused by flashover. Vortex Dry Ice blasting systems have been designed to support those applications that involve cleaning electrical apparatus so that efficiency is restored with minimal outage.
Dry ice is one of the best, if not the best, solution for cleaning all types of power generating and electrical equipment. Dry ice cleaning restores both rotating and stationary electrical equipment to peak performance with dramatically shorter outages.
Dry ice blasting is a non-conductive process, which makes it ideal for the power generation industry. Since electrical and power generating areas are difficult to clean they are often overlooked for maintenance. The dry ice blasting process safely removes dirt, grease, and other residues from generators, electric motors, stator windings and other sensitive equipment. Power generation is critical to industry so prompt cleaning and maintenance can help avoid outages and keep equipment running efficiently.
Benefits include quicker and superior clean, reduced or shorter outages, longer lasting equipment, improved efficiency of equipment, nonconductive, nontoxic, and lower overall costs of equipment and servicing equipment.
