Dry ice blasting is a safe, non-destructive, non-abrasive industrial process that uses dry ice pellets to remove flash, paint, rust, and other coatings from surfaces.
The blasted dry ice particles or pellets freeze the surface coatings or contaminants, causing them to fall away when they fracture from the cold in a burst of energy. In scientific terms, it is a kinetic and thermodynamic process.
The list of advantages of dry ice blasting is extensive, ranging from being eco-friendly to non-destructive cleaning without water or chemicals. Here is a list of benefits:
- No water
- No drying
- No abrasive grit
- No chemicals
- No lodgings
- Non destructive to sensitive machinery
- Non-conductive around electrical service
- Reduces maintenance downtime
- Ecologically friendly
- Efficient – saves money, time, labor, and materials
- No corrosive solvents
- Eliminates secondary waste
- Cleans without etching or damaging surfaces
