Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting is a innovative cleaning process using solid CO2 pellets. It is a process in which dry ice particles are accelerated by compressed air through a blast nozzle to impact and clean a surface.
The micro-thermal shock (caused by the dry ice temperature of -79℃), the kinetic energy of dry ice pellets and the air pressure break the bond between the coating and the substrate thus cleaning the surface.
There are many major benefits to this cleaning process:
- Unique as the cleaning medium ‘disappears’ with no mess
- Environmentally-friendly and cost-saving because there is no secondary hazardous waste stream for disposal
- The clean alternative to high pressure water, abrasive or solvent cleaning methods
- Adjustable for safe use on delicate electrical equipment hence reducing downtime as there is no need for break down of production lines
- Dry ice blasting does not erode, wear or scratch the surface being cleaned, it is even safe to use on surfaces such as glass, plastic and printed circuit boards
Dry ice blast cleaning applications are available to many industries. Dry ice blasting can have specific benefits to the following industries but may also be used for a wide range of other applications, some of which we have listed below:
- Chewing gum removal from all surfaces
- Food Processing Equipment
- General Maintenance of Industrial Machinery
- Marine Yacht Hulls
- Pharmaceutical Equipment
- Plastic Moulding Machinery
- Printing Presses and Equipment
Transportation of Temperature Sensitive Products
Perishable products can be shipped at -79℃ in insulated containers with the use of Dry Ice. Because the dry ice doesn’t melt but returns to a gas there is no water residue and hence it can be used for the transport of many items.
