Our service has been refined over the years to offer the quickest, most cost effective solution to get your wax boiler back into production, whilst guaranteeing that 100% of the wax is removed.

Wax boiler machinery plays a crucial role in various industries, providing a reliable and efficient method for melting and applying wax coatings and shell castings. Over time, however, these machines can accumulate wax residue, carbon deposits, and other contaminants, leading to decreased efficiency and potential operational issues. Traditional cleaning methods may not be entirely effective or could pose challenges, such as disassembly requirements and potential damage.

Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting for Wax Boiler Cleaning:

1. Non-abrasive Cleaning:
Dry ice blasting is gentle on machinery surfaces, preventing damage to delicate components. This makes it an ideal choice for cleaning wax boiler machinery where precision and care are essential to maintain the equipment’s functionality.

2. Efficient Wax Residue Removal:
The combination of kinetic energy and thermal effects during dry ice blasting effectively lifts and removes wax residues, ensuring a thorough cleaning process. This is particularly advantageous in maintaining consistent and reliable wax melting and application processes.

3. Reduced Downtime:
Unlike traditional cleaning methods that may require extensive disassembly, dry ice blasting is performed in place, minimizing downtime and allowing for quicker turnaround in production processes.

4. Environmentally Friendly:
Dry ice blasting is an eco-friendly cleaning solution as it does not involve the use of water or harsh chemicals. The CO2 pellets sublimate upon contact with the surface, leaving no secondary waste to dispose of. This aligns with sustainability goals and reduces the environmental impact of the cleaning process.

5. Versatility:
Dry ice blasting can be used on various materials and surfaces without causing damage. This versatility makes it suitable for cleaning different components of wax boiler machinery, including heating elements, pipes, and chambers.
