What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Intelligent Cleaning

Dry Ice or CO2 blasting is a relatively new cleaning process using solid CO2 pellets (known as dry ice). Dry Ice Pellets sublimate once they’ve hit the surface being cleaned (convert directly from a solid blast.

How Does Dry Ice Blasting Clean?

Dry Ice Pellets are propelled at a supersonicspeed by a compressed air gun. Upon impact,the dry ice creates a microthermal shock (caused by the extreme cold temperature of -79oC) which breaks the bond between the coating and the substrate. The high pressure air stream removes the dirt from the surface, while the Dry Ice Pelletsvaporize (sublimate) before your eyes.

Regular cleaning reduces the time needed for each cleaning operation and more important reduces the rejects to a minimum. No dust, water or chemicals used to get superior finish and quality. Old paint is collected in controlled environment and disposed of according to regulations.

A Greener Clean 

Dry Ice Blasting is quickly becoming favoured among all industries because of environmental and production processes, standards, and certifications along with a growing consciousness of the environmental impact of production practices. This method of natural cleaning uses pellets made through a process of taking Liquid Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and expanding it to produce a snowlike substance, that is compressed through a die to make hard Dry Ice Pellets. Environmental benefits include cleaning with a natural substance.

OUR SERVICE SERVES MANY BENEFITS!

1. Cleaning with a Natural Substance
Dry Ice Blasting uses Dry Ice Pellets made from the same substance used to carbonate beverages. This method does not generate secondary waste as does sand, soda, water, or grit cleaning. Dry Ice Blasting also replaces chemical and solvent based cleaning.

2. Safe on Electrical
versatile process cleans heavy buildup without damage to sensitive areas like electrical components, switches, wiring, photo electric sensors, and more.

3. A Thorough, Deeper Cleaning
Since Dry Ice Pellets manage to reach every nook and corner of the equipment it cleans more deeply and effectively.

4. No Damage
Ice Blasting is completely dry, non-abrasive, non-toxic and non-corrosive. It quickly removes most contaminants without damage to switches, panels, lines, tubes, wiring or belts, HVAC equipment and is safe to use on electrical.

5. No Down Time
The process is very fast and dry. The dry ice disappears on contact and can be performed on-line without disassembly and without need for drying time.
