What is Dry Ice?

This type of cleaning technology is very similar to Sand Blasting, where a medium is accelerated with a pressurised air stream to impact a targeted surface, except that the effect is doubled. With the difference in temperature, Dry Ice creates tensions and fractures on the surface layer, and with the kinetic energy of its pellets removes deposits without damaging the base material.

Due to its soft means of application, Dry Ice cleaning is in many ways superior to Sand Blasting. It does not pit or damage the underlying surface and sublimes quickly into the air. It leaves no secondary residue and does not erode or wear away the targeted surface. Tolerances are preserved and most equipment and machinery can be cleaned while in place, no transport needed.

Dry Ice Advantages

Dry Ice Advantages

  • cleans numerous objects with varying complex geometries in one go
  • equipment is cleaned on location, no transport needed
  • quick evaporation that leaves no waste, only removed material
  • the only result of cleaning with Dry Ice is a cleaned workpiece and dry removed material
  • Dry Ice transforms into harmless natural gas Carbone dioxide
  • no water - no possibility of developing microorganisms
  • no dust or sand deposits
  • no chemicals
  • without damaging the surface
  • environmentally friendly
  • removes different coatings

Dry Ice Blasting evaporates completely and leaves no waste; only the removed material must be disposed of. It works like every other particle blasting process: Sand, Soda, Beads and Steam Blasting.

In addition to the pressure of the blasting material, Dry Ice's frigid temperature of minus 78.5°C “explodes” against the material to be removed. The method is similar to other forms of abrasive blasting such as Sand Blasting, Plastic bead Blasting, or Soda Blasting, which substitutes dry ice as the blasting medium.
