dry ice blasting services
Dry ice blasting is a fast remediation method that uses high-velocity, high-density dry ice to clean surfaces without damaging the structure or creating new waste streams. Dry ice blasting eliminates the need for labor-intensive manual sanding and wire brushing by removing the contaminants.
Some machinery can be cleaned with it being in use or with minimal down time, it also is very fast to clean up cause there is no residue left from the dry ice just the material we are blasting off.
Because of the temperature difference between the dry ice particles (-109°Fahrenheit / -78.3°Centigrade) and the surface being treated, thermal shock occurs during the dry ice blasting process. This breaks down the bond between the substrate and the contaminant to be removed from it. The dry ice vaporizes on impact, so no secondary waste stream is created.
A number of industries worldwide have discovered the advantages of this precision cleaning process. Applications range from heavy slag removal to delicate semiconductor and circuit board cleaning. The Mold Remediation Industry adopted dry Ice blasting as an acceptable, and sometimes preferable method to remediate structures (IICRC S-500). Dry ice blasting is a dry, nonabrasive, non-conductive process that leaves no residual media to clean up.It’s the pure and powerful solution for mold remediation. Dry ice blasting is great for commercial coating removal.

Dry Ice cleaning of the surface of products and instruments is not toxic and will stop the growth of mold, mildew and other fungi as well as stopping odors at the source by elimination of the bacterial host environment, instead of a masking agent or cover up. Dry Ice cleaning is 100% ecologically safe, USDA rated, biodegradable and harmless to humans, animals and marine life.
