Nordic Products & Services are leaders in the supply of safe, effective and environmentally friendly cleaning contracting solutions across a range of sectors and applications.
However, when the local council called upon their expertise to clean a major road surface, the solution was not ready to hand:
- The spilt product was toxic and had left a waxen covering once solidified which was dangerous to ingest and too slippery to allow traffic so the road had to be closed
- Water-based cleaning equipment could not be used as there was a risk of contaminating the water supply via run-off
- Heat-based cleaning equipment could not be used as vapours arising could be dangerous
Nordic contacted ESL for their expertise and wide range of industrial cleaning machinery and equipment.
ESL’s Dry Ice Blasting technology came to the rescue.
Dry ice blasting uses solid CO2 to remove the substrate without damaging the underlying surface and without the use of water or heat. The process removed the waxen toxic materials quickly and efficiently allowing the safe and effective removal and the re-opening of the major road.
Nordic was delighted with the product and support provided from ESL: “We had run out of options for machine-removal and were faced with a long, expensive and hazardous manual removal operation. ESL came up with the perfect product for efficient and safe removal. The support was first-class. Thanks ESL” (Shane Morton, Operations Director, Nordic)
