Production facilities, assembly lines and manufacturing equipment incur large amounts of built up residues such as grit, dust, oil and grime. Inevitably this slows down production, creates a variety of mechanical breakdowns, and quality control suffers. In turn, these issues can lead to bigger problems of creating an unsafe work environment and unrecoverable costs such as increased downtime and decreased profits. Overcome and Prevent these issues with Dry Ice Blasting.

Run A More Efficient Plant
Dry Ice Blasting is an industrial cleaning process, which is non-abrasive, non-toxic and completely dry on contact with no residual blast media cleanup. This cleaning process can be used to eliminate a large variety of residues and surface contaminates that can create a harsh environment for production or assembly. Offering a multitude of advantages over traditional cleaning methods, Dry Ice Blasting is a far superior, cost effective and efficient cleaning method for industrial settings.

How Does It Work?
The Dry Ice Pellets are propelled at supersonic speed with compressed air targeting the built up residue. Upon impact, the Dry Ice creates a micro-thermal shock (caused by the extreme cold temperature of -79ºC) breaking the bond between the residue coating and the substrate. The high-pressure air stream removes debris from the surface, while the Dry Ice Pellets vaporize (sublimate) on contact, leaving parts in an "almost new" state.

Where Dry Ice Blasting
is Being Used
Dry Ice Blasting is such a versatile and portable technology that it makes it easy to clean anything from tiny, sensitive electrical and machine parts to entire facilities - floor to ceiling. Examples within the industry are many, but the following 2 show the broad spectrum of the medium's capabilities.
