Dry ice blasting
Dry ice blasting, also known as CO2 blasting, uses frozen carbon dioxide as the blasting medium. Compressed air is used to forcibly spray small pellets of dry ice against the treatment surface. As they strike the treatment surface, the resulting impact energy causes the pellets to immediately change into the gaseous form. The only waste products are the dirt or corrosion which the process removes from the surface.
The effect of dry ice blasting is further enhanced by the thermal shock.
The main advantages of dry ice blasting are that this method cleans even the deepest nooks and crannies in the material very quickly and effectively, that no harmful chemicals are required and that the only waste products are normal street dirt.
This makes dry ice blasting ideal for use in the food industry.
