Dry Ice blasting is cleaning using Dry Ice. Dry Ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide.
The Dry Ice is accelerated in a pressurised air stream, and expelled through a hose and nozzle. When pointed at the surface, the dirt is cleaned off, without damaging the sub-straight. It is similar to soda, and sand blasting but as it uses dry ice as the blasting medium.
Dry Ice is non toxic, non abrasive, non conductive and non flammable. Compared to other media blasting methods, dry-ice blasting does not create secondary waste or chemical residues as dry ice converts back to a gaseous state, when it hits the surface that is being cleaned. Dislodged dirt can just be swept up, vacuumed or washed away.
Dry Ice Blasting is an efficient cleaning method, & is quickly becoming the favoured method of cleaning in a large number of industries where the use of abrasives, water or chemicals is not possible or creates other challenges.
Dry ice is made of reclaimed carbon dioxide that is produced from other industrial processes, and is an approved media by the EPA, FDA and USDA. It also reduces or eliminates employee exposure to the use of chemical cleaning agents.
The environmental benefits include cleaning with a natural substance, replacing chemicals and minimising the need for special waste disposal.
Due to the very high pressure and high volume of air used for project the dry ice pellets, this process gets into the "nooks & crannies" to give a very effective and deep clean.
You'll be amazed at the result that can be achieved.
