The Future of Cleaning is Here

Dry ice blasting is a relatively new cleaning process using solid Co2 pellets (known as dry ice). It is primarily used for industrial use in a variety of applications.  

What is Dry Ice?

Dry ice pellets are made by taking liquid carbon dioxide (Co2) from a pressurized storage tank and expanding it at ambient pressure to produce snow. The snow is then compressed through a die to make hard pellets. The dry ice, although hard in appearance, does not rely on its abrasive properties for effective cleaning. 

What is Dry Ice Blasting?

During dry ice blasting, the pellets sublimate (convert directly from a solid blast pellet to a Co2 vapor) leaving no residue, hazardous waste, or toxic fumes. The dry ice method of cleaning is quickly becoming the preferred cleaning method for environmental as well as production reasons. Because of tremendous environmental regulations, industry has a need to minimize waste. Further, there is a growing consciousness that many are placing now on the global environmental impact of their production practices. However, these benefits are accentuated due to the tremendous performance gains through dry ice blasting  little or no production downtime, quality of clean, and minimized damage to equipment.  

Dual Hose vs. Single Hose

Dry ice blasting systems come in two varieties: single hose and dual hose. The basic difference is the resulting blasting aggression. Which system is right for you may vary according to your application. In most cases, single hose (SH) systems provide far better cleaning and flexibility. The dual hose (DH) technology uses the Venturi effect to accelerate the particles.
