Why do we recommend dry-ice blasting?

Environmentally friendly and free of chemicals

As opposed to most common methods for cleaning and preparing surfaces, dry-ice blasting is an environmentally friendly, labour-saving alternative with low equipment requirements.

Suitable for almost any application

arrow10

Nearly unlimited range of use (alternative to water, chemicals or abrasive blasting material)

arrow10

Clean, safe process that cleans pore-deep

arrow10

Gentle, does not alter the base material in any way

arrow10

Non-abrasive, non-flammable and non-conductive

Environmental factors

arrow10

Environmentally friendly, non-destructive cleaning method

arrow10

No soiled blasting media, such as water or any type of pellet material

arrow10

Dry-ice is a medium which is approved by EPA, USDA and FDA

arrow10

Non-toxic and non-damaging

arrow10

Inhibits the growth of moulds and bacteria

Economical

arrow10

Less resources

arrow10

In-situ cleaning

arrow10

Fewer cleaning cycles

arrow10

No need to dispose of secondary waste

What is dry-ice blasting?

Dry-ice blasting is a process which uses dry ice pellets at temperatures as low as -79°C. The dry-ice cleaning step leaves no CO2 residues that would need subsequent removal. Various physical effects ensure the effective removal of dirt, coats of paint, etc.

Disposal

1

Dry-ice pellets are accelerated to the speed of sound, causing them to detach any dirt adhering to the surface as they impact

2

The temperature of the dry-ice causes cracks to form on the surface of the contamination

3

As they penetrate the contamination, their physical state changes from a solid to a gaseous state. This 700-fold increase in volume 'rinses-off' the contamination in a controlled manner

4

The detached, 'blasted-off' contamination is all that remains, which can then be removed

Mode of function

  • Sudden drop in surface temperature
  • The higher the initial temperature of the work-piece (cleaning casing molds), the better the cleaning effect
