Dry Ice Blasting. How does it work?
Dry ice blasting is one of the safest cleaning methods for swiftly and effectively cleaning surfaces and items. Small dry ice particles are transported via a tube with compressed air or pressurized air and directed towards the surface to be cleaned, which is how it works. On impact, the little dry ice particles detach from the surface and evaporate to carbon dioxide, leaving no trace for further cleaning and blasting cleaning away any particles that were present on the surface.
It’s also ideal for a variety of applications due to its safe and speedy cleaning, as it is perfect for tight areas, hard-to-reach surfaces, and items that need to be cleaned and put back to work right away.
Dry ice is made of reclaimed CO2
Dry ice blasting machines recycle previously used CO2 to repurpose it rather than requiring new resources, which are useless and costly. All of the dry ice utilized in the dry ice blasting process is manufactured from reclaimed CO2, which is produced as a by-product of other industrial processes such as oil refinery or large-scale fermentation.
Harmful secondary waste is eliminated
When dry ice comes into contact with the surface to be cleaned, it sublimates (turns from a solid to a gas) and produces no secondary waste. Only the dislodged contaminant that was removed from the surface remains. You can alter the pressure at which the dry ice is released from the cleaning machines and the size of the dry ice particles that are pushed to the surface depending on the type of dirt or particles.
It’s ideal for dealing with electronics and electric circuits because the electrical wires won’t need to be covered with masking tape. Because dry ice cleaning is a non-abrasive cleaning approach that conducts no electricity and evaporates quickly and it can make your job a lot easier.
