Our dry ice blasting systems can be as gentle or aggressive as necessary – with blasting pressures ranging from 20 to 300 PSI – covering the widest range of applications. Dry ice blasting is superior and replaces other cleaning methods including abrasive blasting, soda blasting, high-pressure water blasting, solvent cleaning, power tool cleaning, and hand tool cleaning.
Cryogenic blasting is a technology in which particles of solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) are propelled in a high velocity air stream to impact and clean a surface.
The combined impact energy and low temperature (-110deg. F) of the co2 particles produces a thermal-kinetic effect that removes contaminates and coatings from the inside out, as opposed to the chiseling, abrasive effects of grit blasting. As the dry ice pellets impact the surface, they instantaneously sublimate and return to the atmosphere in their original gaseous state, leaving no residual blast media, thus eliminating grit entrapment and additions to the waste stream.
Additionally, with proper conditioning of supply air, the dry nature of cryogenic cleaning allows for on site cleaning of electrical components and eliminates the need for drying prior to re-energizing electrical apparatus.
