Ice Blasting is a very efficient, environment friendly system of removing
contaminants - paint, dirt, etc from a hard surface using Dry Ice (Co2) pellets blasted out of a gun at high pressure. Upon striking the surface two things happen. First the product being
removed is hardened by the Co2 pellets and blasted away to fall to
the ground as small flakes. Secondly the Co2 pellets Sublimate back
into Co2 gas!
there is no waste product to contaminate the air or surrounding area,
only the product you are removing, unlike sand-shot-bead blasting
which creates vast amounts of dust & debris. There also is no wetness and abrasive erosion, Ideal for cleaning
machinery, electric motors, food ovens etc, all can be cleaned INSITU,
resulting in lower machine downtime. Machines & parts do not need
to be disassembled or removed from the building.
No chemicals, no blasting abrasives and no waste water! Due to this
there is no contamination of mechanical parts, bearings, seals etc.
There are also no costs involved in the disposal of toxic or harmful
chemicals, solvents or other abrasives. Dry Ice Blasting is environmentally
friendly, safe and economical, even in areas where cleaning with water
or sand is prohibited. The labour input for cleaning & maintenance of machinery and production
lines can be dramatically reduced by using Dry Ice Blasting.
& cleaner than traditional methods of cleaning.
Dry Ice cleaning is very useful in the renovation of old property.
Timber beams and doors can be stripped quickly and cleanly leaving
other trades to continue work immediately after. Old brickwork and
stonework can also be cleaned safely because Dry Ice blasting is non
The Co2 itself is a by product of other manufacturing processes such
as the chemical industry and oil and natural gas industries. Co2 is
not produced separately It is always a by-product of other manufacturing
