Blasting with dry ice is a fun way to clean.

Hand scrubbing, solvent wiping, sand, bead, or soda blasting have all been created as clean, safe alternatives to dry ice blasting and cleaning. Aerospace, disaster recovery, mould remediation, electrical equipment, food facilities, general maintenance, in-plant applications, mould cleaning, petrochemical, printing facilities, robotics, and semiconductor are just a few of the industries that employ dry ice cleaning equipment.

Dry ice cleaning, also known as CO2 cleaning or dry ice blasting, has become an important element of the cleaning process in a wide range of businesses throughout the world. The method works by accelerating dry ice particles, often known as dry ice pellets in the industry, at high speeds in a compressed air stream. When dry ice collides with the surface to be cleaned, it bursts, removing the surface pollutant kinetically. While the pollutant being removed falls to the ground for simple cleanup, the dry ice returns to its gaseous condition and vanishes.

The benefits of adopting this sort of cleaning procedure are obvious. Decreased waste streams, contamination of neighbouring regions are reduced, and most equipment may be cleaned in place, resulting in less expensive manufacturing downtime, low or no disassembly of equipment, and little, if any, wear to the substrate being cleaned.

So, whether it’s semiconductor components or a printing press, plastic and rubber moulds or robotic automotive equipment, food bins or fire-damaged masonry and wood, dry ice blast cleaning technology is making cleaning cool for a variety of sectors and businesses across the world.
