The Dry Ice Blasting process starts by using pellets made from Liquid Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and expanding it to produce a snow like substance. This is then compressed to make hard Dry Ice Pellets.
Dry Ice Pellets are then directed at a surface in order to be propelled at a supersonic speed via a compressed air gun. Upon impact, the dry ice creates a micro-thermal shock (caused by the extreme cold temperature of -79º C). The energy transfer vaporises the containment without abrasion and the force of this impact is the primary means of cleaning.
Cleaning In Situ
Dry Ice Blasting is becoming a popular industrial cleaning system, which is non-abrasive, non-toxic and completely dry with no residual waste.
Traditional cleaning methods can require equipment to be disassembled, and relocated to a designated cleaning area. Dry Ice Blasting can be performed on-site without the need for cool down or drying time, saving you time and money as the days for cleaning are turned into hours.
Increases Profit Rate
The Dry Ice Blasting process eliminates so many of the negative elements associated with cleaning and more importantly saves you money leaving a stress free process. Dry Ice Blasting eliminates the need for:
