Restoring Electrical Distribution Boards & Switchgear Post-Flashover with Dry Ice Cleaning

Effectively removes contaminants post-flashover Restores electrical equipment to efficiency post flashover Non-conductive and moisture free process Non-abrasive Flashovers can occur in electrical equipment due to a build up of contaminants, such as dust, grime and product. This can result in catastrophic failure and significant production downtime. For this reason, it is important to look at […]

Dry Ice Cleaning of Electric Motors

Eliminates risk of catastrophic failure Non-abrasive Non-conductive, moisture free process Faster clean at a superior quality Increased IR Readings Due to electric motors proximity to production facilities and equipment, contaminant build-up can occur from oil, grease and product. If these contaminants are not removed, they build-up, resulting in a breakdown of insulation and bearing lubrication, […]

Reliability Ireland March2019 Polar IceTech ARQ, Fleury Engineering

Reliability is Cleanliness

“There cannot be reliability without cleanliness. When we investigate equipment that fails, the condition in which it is maintained plays a significant role. The exterior and interior cleanliness of the asset as well as the quality of the oil used within it plays a significant role in it’s performance.” “How our equipment is cleaned equally […]

Polar IceTech sponsors Reliability Ireland 2019 highlighting the connection between dry ice cleaning and equipment reliability

Polar IceTech announce sponsorship of Ireland’s only Reliability conference

Cleaning is one of the key components in successful equipment reliability and maintenance. When equipment is clean, it’s easier to inspect, identify potential problems and maintain optimum performance. When it’s not, dirt, grease, grime and moisture can cause significant interruptions to production and potentially cost companies millions. In knowing this, and eager to spread the […]
