What is Dry Ice Blasting?

           

Dry ice blasting is a dry cleaning method utilizing dry ice (solid CO2 at -78°C) and compressed air to lift contamination, corrosion and coatings without causing damage to the underlying material.

Unlike sand, soda or bead blasting, the CO2 sublimates back into the atmosphere and does not create or leave behind secondary waste while being better for the environment.

Where can I use Dry Ice Blasting?

                   

Due to dry ice blastings low residue ad effective cleaning method its great used in areas such as:                   

                           

  • Electrical equipment
  •                        

  • Industrial equipment
  •                        

  • Food processing and storage areas
  •                        

  • Fire damaged areas
  •                        

  • Bacteria control
  •

Dry is blasting is…well… Dry!

                   

Items, components and areas which require cleaning but are not tolerant of moisture are the perfect job for dry ice blasting.                   

                   

Dry ice blasting is a dry cleaning method. It can even be used in delicate areas such as:  

                           

  • Switch boards
  •                        

  • Electrical components
  •                        

  • Areas containing electronics
  •                        

  • Wood structures
  •                        

  • Areas at risk of water corrosion
  •

Gentle and Tough Cleaning

           

Being almost non abrasive, dry ice blasting is less likely to damage delicate surfaces. Though while it can be gentle on surfaces, dry ice blasting can deal with the toughest jobs as well.

                   

Dry Ice Blasting is great for:                    

                           

  • Corrosion removal
  •                        

  • Paint removal
  •                        

  • Tar removal
  •                        

  • Fire damaged buildings
  •

    No Dismantling – Less Downtime – Save Money

                       

    Dry to being low residue and a dry form of cleaning more equipment and tools can be cleaned in place meaning less time and money wasted closing plant for maintenance.

    Low Residue Cleaning

                       

    Dry Ice blasting is a low residual blasting media: As it uses dry ice which sublimates back into the atmosphere there is no blasting media left behind after the clean.

                       

    This makes it a great cleaning method in:                   

                             

    • Medical equipment and areas
    •                        

    • Food processing and storage areas
    •                        

    • In doors equipment and areas
    •                        

    • Fire damaged buildings
    •

    Ecologically Friendly

                       

    Less residues and contaminates are created and made from use of dry ice blasting techniques. Other forms of cleaning leave behind residues or water that must then be responsibly handled. Dry ice blasting reduces the need for these tasks again saving time and money.
