Dry Ice Blasting

Commercial and Industrial Cleaning

For businesses requiring powerful cleaning in sensitive or tightly controlled applications, like the presence of delicate machinery or food processing, dry ice blasting is a safe and versatile cleaning process for a multitude of industrial or commercial jobs.

Dry ice blasting is a non-destructive method of safely cleaning surfaces and removing unwanted coatings like peeling paint or rust. The process involves blast cleaning a surface with compressed air and dry ice particles or pellets. This combination creates a chain reaction that is effective for cleaning and smoothing in a non-destructive way.

How does dry ice blasting work?

Tiny particles of dry ice (which is frozen CO2) are blasted at a high pressure from a specialized compressor. Upon impact with the surface, the CO2 immediately vaporizes, creating a tiny shock wave that quickly cools the top layer of the surface. The rapid change in surface temperature creates thermal stress which loosens the unwanted paint or contaminants, and the micro-shocks work with the compressed air to loosen and remove the material.

Benefits of dry ice blasting

Antibacterial: Dry ice blasting can effectively decontaminate food processing equipment from dangerous bacteria such as Listeria, E. coli and Salmonella.

Dry: Because the carbon dioxide vaporizes immediately, it can safely be used to clean sensitive electrical equipment and complex production equipment, including printing presses.

Flexible: The power of the spray can be adjusted to clean delicate surfaces or to remove resilient contaminants. It can also clean complex machinery without disassembly.

Clean: Unlike sandblasting and sponge blasting, there is nothing to clean up after dry ice blasting. The material vaporizes, producing no mess or contaminants.

Dry ice blasting is just one of the abrasive blasting services we offer at Painters USA. Call us any time to ask our industrial cleaning professionals which type of abrasive blasting application is right for your business or industrial space.
