Dry Ice Blasting

Dry Ice Blasting Explained

Dry ice blasting removes contaminants and coatings such as surface rust, dirt, and paint with a high-velocity stream of dry ice pellets. Dry ice cleaning, as this process is also known, is effectively media-less because dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2), sublimates. During dry ice sublimation, solid carbon dioxide turns directly into […]

Dry Ice Blasting vs. Sand Blasting vs. Abrasive Ice Blasting

Dry ice blasting, sand blasting, and abrasive ice blasting can all clean industrial facilities and equipment. Dry ice blasting uses compressed air to propel a high-velocity stream of dry ice pellets at a surface such as a wall, floor, or machine. Dry ice cleaning, as this process is also known, is effectively media-less because its […]

Deburring Plastic Parts Without Hand Tools

Manual deburring is a time-consuming and labor-intensive way to remove burrs from machined plastic parts. At a time when good workers are hard to find, hand deburring is also an inefficient way to deploy labor resources. The use of hand trimmers, deburring blades, rotary deburring tools, and wire brushes can also contribute to worker fatigue […]

Aerospace Deburring for Precision Machined Parts

Aerospace deburring for precision machined parts needs to account for the fact that these components must meet critical tolerances that are sometimes measured in thousands of an inch. These machined aerospace parts also need a surface finish that’s free from burrs, raised areas that are created by operations such as drilling, milling, and turning. If […]

Dry Ice Blasting - Peeling Paint

Peeling Paint? Try Dry Ice Blasting for Facilities Paint Removal

Peeling paint on the walls or floors of facilities is unsightly and can be dangerous. In facilities that process food, pharmaceuticals, or medical devices, peeling or flaking paint in production areas can lead to product contamination and recalls. A good example is from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which recently shut-down a Baltimore, […]
