Dry Ice Blasting And How It Works
Dry ice pellets are created in an eco-friendly way. The process involves the expansion of liquid carbon dioxide in a die or mold, thus creating snow like pellets.
Dry ice blasting is a safe and environmentally friendly alternative to pressure washing and abrasive blasting. The dry ice pellets are propelled at supersonic speeds using a compressed air gun. The impact of the dry ice pellets on a dirty or corroded surface creates what amounts to a thermal shock on the surface. This shock is what breaks up the bond between the surface of the machine or object being cleaned and the dirt or grime buildup. Dry ice blasting is more effective than regular pressure washing and abrasive blasting since the materials used to remove the dirt from the surfaces evaporates on impact, reducing any negative effects it has on the environment.
