Dry ice blasting:  is a non-abrasive, nonflammable and nonconductive cleaning method
is environmentally-friendly and contains no secondary contaminants such as solvents or grit media is clean and approved for use in the food industry
allows most items to be cleaned in place without time-consuming disassembly
can be used without damaging active electrical or mechanical parts or creating fire hazards can be used to remove production residues, release agents, contaminants, paints, oils and biofilms can be as gentle as dusting smoke damage from books or as aggressive as removing weld slag from tooling can be used for many
general cleaning applications

Dry Ice blasting


Dry ice is solid CO2 with a low temperature of -78 C (-109 F). At atmospheric pressure, solid CO2 sublimates directly to vapor without a liquid phase. This unique property means that the dry ice simply "disappears" when it heats up, leaving no residue or waste to be cleaned. The CO2 used to make dry ice is a natural by-product of several industrial manufacturing processes such as fermentation and petrochemical refining. The CO2 given off by the above production processes is captured and stored without losses until needed. When dry ice is used no new CO2 is produced. Instead, only the original CO2 by-product is released which is why using dry ice is considered to be "carbon-neutral" and environmentally responsible.
