Dry ice blasting can be useful for many industries and applications, and it has become more popular recently due to being an environmentally friendly and efficient method of cleaning industrial equipment. With no moisture and no clean-up, our dry ice blasting can used to clean machinery without having to break down and reassemble equipment or wait for everything to dry.
This results in reduced downtime for your business. There are also no hazardous chemicals, solvents or media; just a small amount of carbon dioxide which is already all around us. That makes dry ice blasting perfect for the food and medical industries where there can be no contamination.
Also, due to the non-abrasive nature of dry ice blasting, it can quickly remove most contaminates from equipment without damage to sensitive components like switches, wiring, panels, tubes, or belts.
Rather than using hard, abrasive media to grind on a surface, dry ice blasting uses soft dry ice, accelerated at supersonic speeds, and creates mini-explosions on the surface to lift old paint, dirt, grease and other particles off the underlying substrate.
When the dry ice pellets hit the target, the surface temperature quickly decreases and the velocity of the pellets causes the undesirable materials to be removed.
Dry ice blasting is a process in which solid CO2 pellets are accelerated through a blasting nozzle using compressed air. Upon impact, the CO2 pellets sublimate (change from a solid to a gas) and lift the dirt, grime, and other contaminants from the surface being cleaned.
