Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting
A non-abrasive, non conductive, dry process
Dry ice blasting is a non-abrasive cleaning solution where dry ice pellets (CO₂ in solid form) are used as a blasting media. The dry ice pellets vaporize immediately on contact with the surface being cleaning. Dry ice cleaning is a completely dry process, so even delicate electrical equipment and wiring can be cleaned without damage. Since surfaces are treated extremely gently, wear and tear is avoided.
No waste disposal
Dry ice cleaning produces no waste products. Only the contaminant that has been removed remains to be disposed of, and this can usually be swept or vacuumed from the floor.
Safety / Environmental
Lets not expose our staff and Communities to Silica, Sand, Soda and Harmful Chemicals. Dry ice blasting is completely non-toxic and no hazardous chemicals are used. In addition to being clean and safe, it is also important to remember that dry ice is obtained as a by-product of other industrial processes - i.e. it is made from reclaimed CO2. It does not produce CO2 or add CO2 to the atmosphere and therefore does not contribute to the greenhouse effect. Dry ice blasting is Safe, and completely, environmentally friendly!
Dry ice blasting often allows the company’s production equipment to be cleaned while in operation. The costly periods of production downtime for dismantling and/or cleaning are reduced.
Fast and effective
The combination of extremely high cleaning speeds and a wide range of nozzles means that even normally inaccessible items can be cleaned rapidly. No blasting media are left on chains and drives, etc.
Dry ice blasting reduces downtime and the resulting costs, by cleaning production equipment quickly and effectively while in place. Due to the fast cleaning speed production equipment can be cleaned more frequently. This reduces the potential for rejected final products and the associated expense of running an extra cycle.
