CO2 Ice Blasting
Ventilation Fan Brought Back to Life
A healthy and safe working environment for manufacturing plant employees requires industrial ventilation. A mechanical system of fans, ventilation systems bring fresh outdoor air into the workplace while also removing contaminated indoor air. When these systems are malfunctioning, it can create a dangerous and unhealthy situation.
Cardinal Group’s environmental team was recently called in by an automotive manufacturer who was dealing with a ventilation fan that had mechanical problems. Our specialists assessed the situation and determined that the fan had become covered with material and was unable to function correctly. It was determined that the best course of action was thoroughly cleaning the fan using our CO2 Ice-Blasting equipment — a quick, safe, and economical option.
Once the fan was cleaned by our technicians, it was back up and running at its optimal operating condition. The process took less time and cost less than other options, such as disassembly or complete replacement. To avoid the problem from reoccurring, we have recommended a routine cleaning schedule for all the ventilation fans in use.
