Case Study: Manufacturing Facility Restoration with Dry Ice Blasting

A new startup manufacturer recently purchased a 40-year-old, 300,000 square foot facility that was formerly used as an automotive foundry – with walls, ceiling and rafters blackened by graphite, chemical build-up, dirt, and grime.

Our client wanted the former foundry to appear like a new, state-of-the-art facility befitting their cutting-edge products and investment of millions into new equipment.

The Polar Clean team transformed the facility into what looks like a new facility using dry ice blasting.

The Superior Cleaning Option

Industrial restoration cleaning using dry ice is a superior alternative to hydro-blasting because using water requires reclamation of the used, contaminated water, and all electrical utilities need to be turned off during the cleaning process.

While dry ice blasting is often the best form of cleaning, we supplemented it with hand-cleaning when we ran into unexpected, especially greasy adherents.
