Manual dry ice deflashing & deburring
Dry ice deflashing & deburring is a manual, operator controlled process in which accelerated dry ice particles are employed to blast away residual flash and burr material. The process is ideal for high-value or complex parts. As an effectively “media-less” process, dry ice deflashing & deburring may be used for parts where material media (eg. polycarbonate, sodium bicarbonate, etc.) is not acceptable.
Nitrofreeze® Dry Ice Deflashing & Deburring offers these services with our Nitrofreeze® quality and a three day standard turnaround. Expedited processing as well as additional inspection, documentation, and packaging services are available upon request to meet your needs.
Dry ice deflashing & deburring process
Parts may be fixtured or simply held by an operator. An operator holds the applicator gun and directs the nozzle towards the flashed or burred areas of the part. Dry ice in the system’s hopper is shaved with agitating blades and fed as micro ice particles into the blasting hose. Compressed air powers these particles through the hose and out of the nozzle. The non-abrasive dry ice media blasts away residual material without affecting the critical tolerances of the part.

We’re here to help.
Representatives are available to discuss your project requirements and assist you in choosing the appropriate finishing solution for your parts.
If the parts are deemed viable candidates for the process, sampling can be performed to prove out the concept. A consultation is free so we encourage you to reach out.
We are always happy to talk with you.
