Dry Ice Blasting is an industrial cleaning process in which particles of solid carbon dioxide are propelled at high velocities to impact and clean a surface. These particles are accelerated to supersonic speeds by compressed air and delivered via a hand held or robotised nozzle at the surface to be cleaned.
Dry Ice Blasting differs from other blasting techniques as the blasting media (solid carbon dioxide) vaporises on impact with the surface being treated, leaving nothing behind other than the material or contaminant that has been removed. This process cleans without surface erosion, etching or abrasion. It is also non-conductive, non-flammable and non-toxic.
This process was developed as a safe, clean alternative to traditional forms of abrasive blasting. Dry Ice Blasting has now grown to become an integral and truly versatile cleaning process for a wide range of industries throughout the world.
