What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Dry ice blasting is a cleaning method that uses compressed air and solid CO2 pellets to clean and remove contaminants from a variety of surfaces. Unlike other cleaning methods, dry ice blasting is non-abrasive and does not produce secondary waste, making it a more environmentally friendly choice. Dry ice blasting is effective for cleaning a variety of surfaces, including automotive, industrial, and historical building restoration.

How Dry Ice Blasting Works

Dry ice blasting works by using compressed air to propel small pellets of solid CO2 at high speeds towards a surface. As the pellets make contact with the surface, they rapidly expand and create mini-explosions, which loosen and remove contaminants such as grease, oil, mold, and more. Because the dry ice pellets sublimate, meaning they convert from a solid to a gas without passing through a liquid phase, there is no residual waste left behind.

Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting

Dry ice blasting is a fast and effective cleaning method that can reduce cleaning times by up to 80%. Dry ice blasting is non-abrasive and does not damage the underlying surface or coating, making it a safe cleaning choice for delicate surfaces. Dry ice blasting is environmentally friendly, as it does not produce secondary waste or use harsh chemicals.

Applications of Dry Ice Blasting

Dry ice blasting is ideal for cleaning in a wide range of industries, including automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and industrial manufacturing. Some specific applications of dry ice blasting include mold remediation, fire damage restoration, adhesive removal, graffiti removal, and more. Dry ice blasting can be used to clean surfaces such as machinery, floors, walls, and more.
