What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Apr 5, 2024 | Dry Ice Blasting

We’re glad you asked! The process behind dry ice blasting is just as cool as the name eludes to. 

Here’s the quick and to-the-point science behind it: Dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide or CO2, is accelerated in a pressurized air stream and directed at a surface in order to clean or prepare it.

Instead of using hard, abrasive media, such as sand, to grind on a surface (and possibly damage it), dry ice blasting uses soft dry ice pellets that are accelerated at supersonic speeds to create mini-explosions on the surface to lift the undesirable substance off of the underlying surface. The pellets immediately evaporate back into carbon dioxide gas upon impact, leaving no secondary waste to clean up. 

In short, compared to traditional cleaning methods, dry ice blasting is:

  • Faster reduces downtime
  • More effective exceeds expectations
  • Non-abrasive doesn’t damage equipment or surfaces
  • Non-conductive  safe for electrical equipment
  • Non-toxic  dry ice is a food-grade media and uses no chemicals
  • Waterless reduces potential damage and clean up
  • Produces no secondary waste lower clean-up cost and less time
  • Eco-friendly  does not add additional CO2 into the atmosphere

Dry Ice Works—A Cooler Way to Clean

“Gordon and his team did a fantastic job stripping the underside of a roof deck covered with insulation. Scheduling went well and the job was done quickly without any issues. This job could have been a real mess, but dry ice cleaning was the way to go.”
