Restore and clean almost any surface with our non-abrasive dry-ice blasting service

 

Dry ice blasting is similar to sand blasting, plastic bead blasting, or soda blasting where a medium is accelerated in a pressurized air stream to impact a surface to be cleaned or prepared. But that's where the similarity ends. Instead of using hard abrasive media to grind on a surface (and damage it), dry ice blasting uses soft dry ice, accelerated at supersonic speeds, and creates mini-explosions on the surface to lift the undesirable item off the underlying substrate.

What is dry ice?

Dry Ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2), a colorless, tasteless, odorless gas found naturally in our atmosphere. It is what humans and animals exhale and is vital for plants grow.

Dry ice blasting uses compressed air to accelerate frozen carbon dioxide “dry ice” pellets to a high velocity using a compressed air supply ranging from 20 PSI/50 CFM to 300 PSI/185 CFM depending on the surfaces being cleaned. Dry ice pellets can be made on-site or supplied. Pellets are made from food grade carbon dioxide that has been specifically approved by government agencies. Carbon dioxide is a non-poisonous liquefied gas.



Why should I use dry ice instead of a traditional cleaning method?

The range of cleaning applications for dry ice blasting is exceptional while minimizing downtime, maximizing production efficiency and completely eliminating secondary waste where most other blast media leave it behind. Dry ice sublimates (vaporizes) upon impact with the surface. All that remains is the contaminate you are removing. Also, since dry ice vaporizes on impact, the process can be used to clean complicated cavities where typical grit blast media will become trapped.

Impact Ice Blasting is truly and completely environmentally friendly!


In addition to being clean and safe, it is also important to remember that dry ice is obtained as a byproduct of other industrial processes — it is made from reclaimed CO2. It does not produce CO2 or add CO2 to the atmosphere and therefore does not contribute to the greenhouse effect.

Dry ice blasting is clean and safe:

  • Dry ice is a medium approved by government agencies, is non-toxic and non-hazardous, and inhibits mold and bacteria growth;
  • Dry ice blasting has been effectively used in government-inspected and certified facilities;
  • Dry ice blasting is safe to use with food processing equipment;
  • Dry ice blasting does not release harmful gases into the atmosphere;
  • Dry ice blasting does not generate secondary waste;
  • Dry ice blasting is safe and non-toxic (once particles impact the surface they dissipate into the atmosphere);
  • Dry ice blasting reduces or eliminates employee exposure to (and corporate liability from) the use of dangerous chemical cleaning agents.

Other cleaning methods can be toxic:

  • Sand, soda, or water blasting can leave toxic secondary waste to be cleaned up in addition to the toxic substrate;
  • Sand, soda, or water blasting can create downstream contamination that effects surrounding installations;
  • Soda blasting can kill surrounding vegetation;
  • Chemical and solvent cleaning methods are toxic, which creates toxic waste which has to be disposed;
  • Workers are exposed to potentially harmful substances through the use of chemicals and solvents.

Testimonials



"Your team did a fantastic job on removing the smoke damage and soot from our home after the fire. Everything was done so well and professionally. Everyone was so friendly and answered any questions and concerns we had about the process. We couldn’t have asked for better service".

Jeff Keller

"I was sceptical at first but once I saw what they could do i was sold on the power of Dry Ice Blasting. They were able to remove more accumulated paint in a day than we used to remove with 4 guys in a week using chemicals and hand tools".
