Dry Ice Blasting Machines

Dry ice cleaning is a novel technology well suited to a diverse range of applications found in most of the industrial sectors. It is an evironmentally friendly alternative to conventional industrial cleaning practices and during the recent years has seen rapid expansion on a global scale owing to its advantages.

The process is similar to traditional media blasting, however, instead of using hard abrasives such as grit, slag or glass/plastic beads, it employs the power of solid carbon dioxide (CO2) pellets. They are carried by a stream of compressed air and directed at high velocity through a nozzle towards the contaminant layer. The differences between the two methods is: immediately upon impacting the object, the dry ice pellets sublimate into CO2 gas; no surface profile is created, usually there is no increase in the surface temperature, no peening effect and mechanical stress.
