Dry Ice Cleaning
Dry Ice Cleaning with carbon dioxide dry ice is an environmentally safe way to prepare surfaces or remove coatings, saving time and money for an ever-growing list of businesses.
Developed by the aircraft industry to clean everything from electrical components to petroleum waste, blast cleaning uses compressed air to propel dry ice particles that create an impact flushing action. These particles expand on contact and sublimate into vapor CO2, leaving behind a clean, dry, undamaged surface. Dry Ice Cleaning has the following advantages:
Turning to dry ice blast cleaning instead of using harsh chemicals or gritty abrasives:
- Extends equipment life.
- Increases equipment operating availability.
- Eliminates equipment disassembly and masking before cleaning.
- Reduces cleaning time–which also lowers costs.
Less Impact on environment
Dry ice blast cleaning protects surface integrity and avoids grit entrapment, making it an effective alternative to abrasive grit blasting. There’s also no residue or secondary waste to clean, so you can use it with food processing equipment.
Eliminating toxic chemicals and harmful emissions makes dry ice blast cleaning environmentally safe, and it reduces employee health risks. It’s also:
- Eliminates cleanup costs resulting from toxic chemicals or gritty cleaning
- Reduces the labor costs of manual cleaning
- Slashes or eliminates waste disposal costs
From cleaning sensitive electrical wiring and electronic components to removing adhesives, lubricants, paints and other substances on assembly line equipment, blast cleaning with dry ice is showing its versatility in a wide range of applications, such as:
- Food Processing
- Mold Restoration
- Tire Manufacturing
