Safety & Efficiency

Efficiency and Safety: The Winning Combination for Industry Success

One of the main benefits of the Cardox System is that blockages can be cleared within seconds without manual cleaning which can be dangerous and time consuming.

It’s also important to note that Cardox is not classified as an explosive or dangerous good by international standards or by the UK Health and Safety Executive. As a result, there are no special permits required for storage, transportation, or handling.
