Dry ice blasting is an industrial cleaning service which is non-abrasive, non-toxic and completely dry with no residual blast media cleanup. Dry ice blasting is a non-abrasive industrial cleaning service. The liquid carbon dioxide used to make the dry ice pellets is non toxic and environmentally friendly. Since the residue and buildup is removed via a miniature shock explosion when the dry ice pellets hit the surface, there is minimal residual needing to be cleaned up. Select your Industry Below:

Foundries require an industrial cleaning service that can clean their machines with minimal downtime.  Dry ice blasting is ideal for foundries, since it can be effectively performed on surfaces of all temperatures.  The ROI for foundries using dry ice blasting is among the highest of all industries since the down time required by other industrial cleaning services is reduced by cleaning with liquid CO2. Use dry ice blasting to clean:

  • hot mold core boxes and screens
  • isocure cores
  • poured aluminum molds

General Maintenance

Compared with other industrial cleaning services, dry ice blasting requires lower down time for machines.  The need for disassembly of the items and objects to be cleaned is greatly reduced with dry ice cleaning.  The down time required by other industrial cleaning methods due to drying and cleanup is also greatly reduced.  Dry ice blasting has proved to be effective on:

  • storage tanks
  • de-aerators
  • boiler/steam and mud drums
  • magnetic particle inspection
  • production machinery
  • removal of oil and grease from all surfaces
  • removes smoke and soot from fire damaged areas

Historical Restoration

Gentle cleaning methods are required when restoring historical items such as artifacts or monuments. Dry ice blasting allows the original item to keep its integrity since the liquid CO2 is non toxic and the blasting method is non abrasive. Dry ice blasting can remove decades of dirt, grime and other buildup, all without leaving behind any scratches, nicks or abrasions. Dry ice blasting can also be an effective way of removing lead based paints that may be present on historical items. The environmentally safe liquid CO2 eliminates the need for harmful paint removers and chemical solvents.


Algae, barnacles, rust and grime can build up on marine vessels over time.  Dry ice blasting is an environmentally safe alternative to pressure washing when it comes to boats and watercraft since the dry ice pellets evaporate on contact and won’t leave behind any harmful chemicals in the water as you clean.  Use dry ice blasting for:

  • blistered fibreglass repair
  • anti-fouling paint removal
  • ship hulls
  • sea water intake valves
  • condensers and heat exchangers
  • engine rooms

Mass Transit

Transit systems thrive on punctuality and efficiency, making the need for a quick and reliable industrial cleaning service so important.  With very little down time needed for drying and cleanup of residual materials, dry ice blasting is ideal for cleaning:

  • cleans escalators, elevators, floors
  • rails cars, buses, floors
  • cleans concrete surfaces
  • motor cleaning
  • electrical systems

Mold Remediation

Mold remediation is made simple with dry ice blasting. The ability of the dry ice pellets to reach corners, cracks and other hard to reach places where mold may be present gives it an advantage over other industrial cleaning services.  Since dry ice blasting is gentle and non-abrasive, it can keep the structural integrity of the building in tact while effectively removing the mold. The advantages of using dry ice blasting include the ability to:

  • clean detail work, tight spots, and around nails and obstructions
  • complete removal event in tight angles and tresses
  • clean around wiring and all plumbing without damage
  • reduce high current power-tool usage
  • dry ice blasting kills organic contaminants


Packaging plants require their equipment to be clean and sanitary which involves a high dependency on industrial cleaning services.  Dry ice blasting is sanitary and non-toxic, making it perfect for conveyer belts and packaging equipment for almost every industry.  There is no secondary waste generated by dry ice blasting, keeping your packaging plants clean and sanitary.


Dry ice blasting is the preferred method of cleaning and sanitation for the pharmaceutical industry.  The dry ice pellets easily clean between the tablet molds, mixers and separators used in the manufacturing plants of pharmaceuticals. The liquid carbon dioxide used in the cleaning process is non toxic and disappears on contact, leaving no harmful residue on your machinery. Consider dry ice blasting when cleaning:

  • Stainless steel containers
  • Reactors
  • Mixers
  • Tablet Molds
  • Separators


Dry ice blasting is an effective method of cleaning plastic injection molding and die extrusion parts.
