Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting is an effective cleaning method and an excellent alternative to sandblasting, hydroblasting and other techniques that could damage sensitive equipment.
Soft dry ice pellets are accelerated to supersonic speeds and then directed at a surface that needs cleaning. As the pellets impact the surface, small explosions occur. These mini-explosions lift the undesirable material off the underlying substrate.
Ideal for General Cleaning Applications
Dry ice blasting offers many advantages over other industrial cleaning processes. It is nonabrasive, nonflammable and nonconductive.
Exposed to heat, dry ice changes directly from a solid to carbon dioxide gas. It never becomes liquid. That makes dry ice blasting a clean, dry and safe cleaning method, particularly when dealing with electrical or mechanical parts that might be damaged by water.
Our food-grade carbon dioxide dry ice pellets are approved by the FDA, EPA and USDA. Dry ice blasting is environmentally friendly.
Dry Ice Blasting:
- Allows most items to be cleaned in place — you’re not stuck with time-consuming teardown.
- Can be used without damaging active electrical or mechanical parts or creating fire hazards.
