Check out Our New Case Study: Using Dry Ice Blasting to Clean Economizer Piping

by | Sep 12, 2019

Our client in Alberta referenced in this case study is highly dependant on its economizer to maximize energy efficiency and reduce costs associated with powering critical equipment. It works by reducing air conditioning costs using outside air to provide free cooling. As a result, the compressor has less demand, which lowers overhead costs and extends the useful life of the equipment.

While our client performs regular cleaning on its economizers as part of its preventative maintenance plan, when the fins on the tubes of the economizer get dirty, deposits build up and they become far less efficient. Our client recognized that the traditional cleaning methods they’ve been using can be messy, time-consuming, and impractical. As such, they decided to try Wickens Dry Ice Blasting.
