Dry Ice Blasting:
Industrial Cleaning with
A Clean Conscious

It's unfortunate to think of the negative effect traditional industrial cleaning methods using chemicals, solvents or sand have on our planet – not to mention the secondary waste that is also created and needed to be specially disposed of!

Approved by the EPA, FDA and the USDA, Dry Ice Blasting will help reduce the costs associated with secondary waste clean up, increase your operation's efficiency, and leave no carbon footprint to the environment.

No Chemicals Required,
No Secondary Waste Created...

Just a Disappearing Act
Unlike other traditional cleaning methods, Dry Ice Blasting creates no secondary waste. Upon impact, the Dry Ice Pellets create a microthermal shock breaking the bond between the residue and the subtrate. Allowing the grime to drop to the ground, there is no chemical or secondary waste created from the process and no need for hazadardous disposal.

The Dry Ice is obtained as a by-product of other industrial processes made from reclaimed CO2. It does not produce CO2 or add CO2 to the atmosphere and therefore does not contribute to the greenhouse effect.
