Dry Ice Blasting

Dry Ice Blasting is a revolutionary blasting method that uses rice sized dry ice pellets as the blasting material. The pellets are accelerated in a jet of compressed air similar to that used in traditional blasting methods.

Why clean with dry ice blasting? Because it requires ...

  • less cleanup
  • less time 
  • less labor-intensive effort
  • no cool-down
  • no disassembly
  • no equipment relocation
  • no equipment drainage
Dry ice blasting also is...
  • non-polluting
  • non-corrosive
  • non-conductive
  • non-explosive
  • almost 100%  sterile
  • able to inhibit bacterial growth by sanitizing 75% as it disinfects

Dry Ice Blasting was designed to replace high pressure water cleaning and other traditional blasting methods that use materials such as sand, glass, and plastic as abrasives. It also effectively replaces the use of hazardous chemicals, solvents, and other dangerous cleaning processes.
