5 Reasons to Use Dry Ice Cleaning
- Increases uptime through in-place cleaning
- Cleans without damaging the substrate
- Reduces/eliminates the need for hazardous solvents
- Quicker and more thorough than cleaning by hand
- Safe around electrical components
Explanation of Dry Ice Blasting
Dry Ice Blasting, Dry Ice Cleaning, or CO2 Blasting is a relatively new cleaning process using solid CO2 pellets known as dry ice. Dry Ice Pellets sublimate once they’ve hit the surface to be cleaned (meaning they convert directly from a solid blast pellet to a vapour) leaving a clean, dry surface with no residue or secondary waste created.
Dry Ice Blast Cleaning Is Efficient and Eco-Friendly
The Dry Ice Blasting process is superior to blasting with sand, glass beads, and other types of cleaning methods for numerous reasons. As an Eco-friendly cleaning alternative, the dry ice cleaning method is quickly becoming favored for environmental as well as production reasons. Due to the nature of the Dry Ice Blasting process, there is no waste to be disposed of. Tremendous performance gains of little to no production downtime, quality of the clean, no clean-up, and minimized damage to equipment make Dry Ice Blasting a cost-effective cleaning option.
