Engineered Wood - Dry Ice Blast Cleaning

Dry Ice Blast Cleaning can reduce wood press cleaning time by as much as 85% while reducing labour costs and providing a safer cleaning process for employees. Traditionally, workers are involved in a very labour-intensive, manual cleaning process using angle grinders and other tools. This cleaning process is dangerous and requires employees to work within the machines in very close proximity to residue and dust, which are harmful if inhaled. In addition, manual cleaning is not fully effective as the unreachable parts of the machine simply do not get cleaned.

Dry Ice Blast Cleaning eliminates the manual cleaning of presses, dryers and vents, while eliminating employee exposure to unsafe conditions. Dry ice cleaning is four times faster than the traditional cleaning methods and ultimately more cost-effective.
