Dry Ice cleaning is also known as dry ice blasting, CO₂ blasting, and even environmentally sustainable cleaning.
Dry Ice cleaning is an efficient and cost-effective industrial cleaning system, which helps industries to maximise production capability and quality. Dry Ice cleaning is similar to sand blasting, plastic bead blasting or soda blasting, where particles are accelerated in a pressurised air stream to impact a surface which needs to be cleaned or prepared. But that's where the similarity ends.
Instead of using hard abrasive particles to attack a surface (and damage it), dry ice blasting uses soft dry Ice pellets accelerated to supersonic speeds, and creates mini-explosions on the surface to lift the undesirable layer off the underlying substrate.
Dry Ice pellets can be made on site or supplied by Air Products.
