Property Services Solutions Dry ice blasting is the fast, dry, and non-abrasive cleaning method.
Dry ice blasting uses compressed air to accelerate solid carbon dioxide (CO2) dry ice pellets to clean a variety of surfaces including industrial equipment, fire damage, and mold. Dry ice blasting effectively cleans ink, glue, paint, food, rubber, mold release agents, dirt, grease, oil, and numerous other contaminants.
Compared to manual cleaning with solvents and a wire brush, dry ice blasting can cut cleaning time, leading to reduced costs. With dry ice blasting, you can clean your equipment, molds, and dies on line and "in place." There is no longer any need to disassemble, mask, and then reassemble large complex machinery. Downtime is minimized, labour costs are reduced, and productivity increased
Since dry ice sublimates (turns into carbon dioxide gas) upon contact, the process is dry. Dry ice blasting is non-conductive and safe for electrical applications where using water may not be advisable or permitted.
Frequently the "clean-up" from your current cleaning method is worse than the cleaning itself. Dry ice solves that problem by eliminating secondary waste. Dry ice pellets do the job and simply disappear, eliminating the high disposal costs associated with other materials.
The non-abrasive nature of dry ice means that cleaning won't damage sensitive parts or production equipment, extending the useful life of equipment and minimizing the chances of defective products.
Dry ice cleaning is a "green" process that uses small pellets of recycled carbon dioxide to clean a surface. The pellets sublimate (turning from solid directly to gas) during the cleaning process. The carbon dioxide gas is absorbed by trees and plants and converted into carbon (plant growth) and oxygen. Dry ice blasting is really "green" recycling at its best
