What is Dry Ice Blast Cleaning?
It is an environmentally friendly form of controlled and precise cleaning that uses frozen carbon dioxide pellets to remove scales and contaminants from the likes of metal to remove corrosion, rust, paint and other forms of staining and contaminants.
This non-waste cleaning method can be used in numerous industries across the UK and because the 3mm carbon dioxide pellets return to a gas state upon impact with the cleaning surface, they leave no residue. This can be an invaluable benefit for some industries both in being able to contain any pollutant excess that is removed from the source material and also in the environments that the system can be used in.
Dry Ice Cleaning is an exciting cleaning technology can remove contaminants in three ways:
1 – Speed
2 – Thermal Effect
3 – Expansion
The dry ice pellets are propelled at incredibly high speed by compressed air. Upon impact with the cleaning surface, the thermal effect of the dry ice hitting the contiminate loosens any adhesion that the staining may have. The expansion of the dry ice as it turns into a gas allows it to expand 800 TIMES its original area. This helps to lift the stained contiminate from the surface for a powerful yet residue free cleaning method.
Through a series of different nozzle sizes and configurations, we can control the method of ice blasting to suit the designated cleaning surface. This means that the rate of pellet usage and the pressure at which it is fired at can be controlled to provide a powerful yet gentle cleaning process.
So whether the cleaning surface is grafitti paint on a soft plastic material or hard rust on metal surfaces, Dry Ice Blast Cleaning can work its magic on it all.
