The Dry Ice Blasting Process

Powered by compressed air, the dry ice cleaning system blasts dry ice pellets (Solid CO2) at the surface to be cleaned. The hard pellets remove the material through sublimation, which is the transition of the solid carbon dioxide particles to gas. The operator can guide the blast over a focused areas or use a wider spray nozzle for more general coverage. As the dry ice pellets hit the surface to be cleaned, the pellets evaporate harmlessly into the atmosphere. This advantage reduces clean up associated with conventional soda blasting, sand blasting or power washing. Want to see our dry ice blasting process in action?

Dry Ice Cleaning Creates No Secondary Waste

Dry Ice Blasting, which is also known as Co2 Blast Cleaning, offers significant advantages over sand blasting, soda blasting and power washing. It reduces cleanup because no residual H2O, sand or soda run off exists. The dry ice pellets change from a solid into a gas, creating no secondary waste.

Dry Ice Clean Any Machine

The dry ice cleaning process is non-conductive, so it can be used on industrial machinery of all types. The best part of the dry ice blasting process is that it removes contaminants that need to be cleaned, while leaving the substrate unscathed. Only the removed contaminants need to be cleaned up after blasting.

Dry Ice Blasting Is Environmentally Friendly

Dry ice cleaning is environmentally friendly as Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is found naturally in the Earth’s atmosphere. The dry ice used by Nitrofreeze is made from CO2 captured from the atmosphere. Therefore, the dry ice pellets we use are recycled. Dry ice blasting is EPA, USDA and FDA approved. In cases of HAZMAT cleanup, disposal costs are significantly reduced because only the removed material needs to be mitigated and not the additional contaminated effluent, sand or soda particles left behind by other cleaning processes.
