Dry Ice Blasting Cleaning
Dry ice blasting is similar to sand blasting, plastic bead blasting or soda blasting, but much more cost efficient.
Instead of using hard, abrasive media to grind on a surface (and damage it), dry ice blasting uses soft dry ice, accelerated at supersonic speeds, and creates mini-explosions on the surface to lift the undesirable items off the underlying substrate. Soft and sensitive materials can be cleaned without damage. The dry ice evaporates so there is no blast media cleanup.
Before and after dry ice blasting:
Some of the benefits of Dry Ice Blast Cleaning include enhancing operator safety and health, reduce labor costs, effective cleaning without having to disassemble, and reduction or elimination of production downtime.
Applications include paint removal; weld blasting for inspections, and commercial use. Commercial use includes cooling tubes, fin fans, sulfur buildup removal, delicate chrome or nickel plated tools, copper, cleaning compressors while in service, and soft aluminum or brass alloys.
From set-up to clean-up, dry ice is faster and provides better results which also means less downtime for you and more money making it to your bottom line.
