How Much Does Machinery Downtime Cost You in Lost Production?
As many dry ice blasting companies will agree, our mantra is that we save companies time when cleaning critical production machinery.
This isn’t just sales speak. This is a fact. **Below are some recent projects where Optimum dry Ice Blasting have saved companies money:
- Large soap manufacturer saved £10,000.00 in lost production when we blast cleaned a production track in 6 hours. Usual downtime for conventional cleaning is 32 hours and the track generates (roughly) £375 p/h
- Car manufacturer saves £18,000.00 per month by implementing dry ice blasting into cyclic belt cleaning process. Conventional method involves taking the track/belt apart and sending away to be acid dipped. Total time is 3 days p/m.
