Dry Ice Blasting to clean Wind Turbines
The wind energy sector faces a massive problem when cleaning and maintaining the internal machinery of a wind turbine.
The main components that need cleaning are:
All these parts, and more, need regular cleaning as the lubricants administered over a period, collect dust and external airborne particles. These mixed with lubricants affect the performance of the workings. Conventional cleaning involves dismantling each part and cleaning by hand. Until now.
Dry ice blasting can clean the mechanics, without any dismantling. Everything remains in situation. This is because Dry ice blasting is:
