The Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting for YOUR Industry

Apr 5, 2024 | Benefits Of Dry Ice Cleaning, Dry Ice Blasting

Dry Ice Blast Cleaning  is:

  • Safe
  • Efficient
  • Cost-effective
  • Non-abrasive
  • Non-conducive
  • Economically friendly
  • Sterile and FDA approved

So, let’s take a look at how can dry ice blasting benefit specific industries

~Aerospace Facilities and Equipment

This revolutionary cleaning method works extremely well in electrically charged work environments. Because frozen CO2 (dry ice) is a gas, it does not conduct electricity making it the perfect cleaning medium to ensure employee safety, plant efficiency and corporate profitability.

The foam insulation, sealants, coatings, wiring, controls, control panels, aviation grease, oil and carbon materials found in aviation production facilities are all effectively cleaned using CO2 blasting.

~Automotive Operations

This revolutionary cleaning process is fantastic at cleaning weld lines, E-coat systems, electronics, wiring, control gauges, injection mold machines, molds, tools, dies, and presses.

It also cleans warehouse equipment, cranes, saws, material handling equipment, hi-lows, cooling fans, ceiling fans, walls, and flooring.

Dry ice blasting can be used while lines are fully operational, requiring zero downtime and better workplace efficiency.

~Food Processing Operations

Remove dirt, grease, coatings and food residue from food processing equipment, pots, pans, stove-tops, grills, range-tops, freezer racks, utensils, baking ovens, facility floors, ceilings and all associated food-service surfaces.

The ice pellets used are made from extruded and highly cooled (frozen) carbon dioxide gas. CO2 pellets will not contaminate food, cooking surfaces or equipment. In fact, dry ice blasting sanitizes as it cleans (to 110 degrees Fahrenheit) and this specific cleaning method is approved and endorsed by the FDA, EPA, and USDA.

~Oil Field and Petroleum Operations

Oilfield equipment can be slippery, dirty, cross-contaminated and cause a myriad of health and safety concerns. This equipment needs to be regularly cleaned of acids, bitumen, chemicals, heavy oils and protected from corrosion.

Dry ice blast cleaning this expensive equipment eliminates the risk of accidents, early wear and tear on close-tolerance pieces and the process can be completed while the machinery is online and running at capacity to eliminate downtime and lost revenues.

~Printing & Packaging

The dry ice blasting process cleans conveyors, rails, ink boxes, rollers, guides and trays without the need for cool-down or dis-assembly.

Ink and paper pulp buildup, coatings, grease, oils, paper dust and over-spray are all quickly and easily removed in 80% less time than manual scraping and solvent-based cleaning procedures.

The dry ice blast-cleaning process improves print quality and greatly reduces scrap rates; increasing profitability and extending the lifespan of expensive printing press parts including motors, chains, fans and gripper bars.

There are very few situations that dry ice blast cleaning cannot conquer.

If you are curious or have a particular cleaning challenge that you need help with, find a company willing to give you a dry ice blasting demonstration.
