Dry Ice Blasting (Cryogenic Cleaning) Does it Make A Difference?


Dry Ice Blasting (Cryogenic Cleaning), is a non-toxic method of industrial and commercial cleaning. It does not harm the environment. The system is also sustainable, non-flammable and non-conductive leaving little if any waste.

Dry Ice Blasting (Cryogenic Cleaning) is generally used for:

  • Industrial facilities
  • Plastic and other material manufacturing
  • Food processing and service industries
  • Medical and pharmaceutical facilities
  • Residential and business buildings

The Process of Dry Ice Blasting (Cryogenic Cleaning)

Dry Ice Blasting (Cryogenic Cleaning) uses carbon dioxide (CO2) pellets in a high pressure air stream that removes dirt and grime from any surface. Pellet kinetic energy hits the surface with a controlled high velocity. The CO2 pellets expand and vaporize upon contact with the surface. There is no toxic waste to clean up except for a light coating that can be swept up or vacuumed.

The amount of pressure exerted and the amount of pellets used per second in the process will depend on the surface to be cleaned. The pellet mass rate and density can be varied for different applications. Pellet size also varies to accommodate different surfaces. A gentle blast may remove some dirt while other conditions may require a heavy blast of larger CO2 pellets. This is the velocity distribution from the nozzle.

There is no odor from this process since there are no chemicals or solvents. It can be used to remove oil, paint, and residue contaminates without harming the surface of a wall or work area. It does not harm electrical or mechanical systems. Dry ice blasting can be used in small and large area on all surfaces from steel and concrete to rubber, wood and plastic.

Biofilms containing bacteria, mold, fungus and other microorganisms are easily destroyed and removed with dry ice blasting. The blasting causes an intense heat transfer in milliseconds as the solid pellets become a harmless gas or vapor. This kills all pathogens completely. This system is used in hospitals, clinics, restaurants, pharmaceutical facilities and food processing plants to prevent contamination.

Dry Ice Blasting (Cryogenic Cleaning) is powerful but it is not abrasive. This is not sand blasting that can leave scars on the surface.

Dry Ice Blasting (Cryogenic Cleaning) Has a Low cost for industries

Industrial operations that work with plastics, heavy metals, power supplies, chemicals and other substances find that dry ice blasting saves time and money for cleaning. Since it is not abrasive or corrosive even with high pressure, it can be used on all surfaces and areas that are difficult to reach by hand.

Down time is limited since there is no waste disposal required. The cleaning system works quickly. Trained technicians administer dry ice from special pressurized tanks directly where it is needed using specific nozzles on the high-pressure hoses.
