Standard cleaning methods and their disadvantages

These methods require long working time, causing large loss of production and more effort is needed.

Storage of cleaning Agents
Cost of cleaning
Set-up costs
Heating, ventilation
Tooling costs
Waste Management
Loss of Production
Normal methods
Dry ice method


1) Chemical materials, solvent and cleaning agents

- Fragile handling, storage
- Harmful to health and theenvironment
- Low long-term popularity

2) Particle blasting


- Particles damage the surface
- Particles remain
- Cleaning required after removing cleaning residue
- Expensive solution
3) High-pressure water

- High-pressure water can damages surfaces and materials. Electric components must protected.
- Water and contamination must be cleaned off
- Long drying time
