Whether you’re operating a factory or a power plant, everyone knows that the costs associated with downtime can be massive. Many people take this as an unavoidable aspect of the job, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, some of the most common causes of downtime are entirely avoidable. Vortex Dry Ice Blasting can reduce your risk of downtime by intoducing affordable ongoing maintenance cleans. This will reduce build-up of contaminants that are known to cause many wear and tear issues with critical components such as bearings and in the example of power generation, carbon build up causes inefficiencies by enabling voltage drop through the carbon deposits.
Marine based businesses benefit in many areas. An example here is using Vortex to Dry Ice Blast hulls clear of marine growth which slows vessels and with increased hydo-resistance comes greater fuel bills. By keeping the hulls clean and clear ensures maximum operating efficiency for each vessel.
Vortex is able to prepare surfaces for NDT inspection, in most circumstances much quicker than having to send components away to sandblasters and await its return. At Vortex we can blast at your location which can save days in turnaround times. We produce a true finish, unlike sandblasting which is very aggressive and peens the surface hiding cracks and fissures. Because the finish we produce is very clean and not peened this also enables the NDT inspections to take place more quickly, again saving time on turnaround scheduling.
