Dry ice blasting applications: some advantages

Dry ice blasting is a non-toxic and environmentally friendly method of removing dirt and dust from various surfaces. It is also effective in reducing production downtime and minimizing secondary waste. This is particularly beneficial for industries in which it is necessary to maintain product quality and hygiene .

Dry ice blasting is a non-abrasive process that can be safely used on virtually any surface. It provides superior cleanliness and can eliminate months of buildup. As a result, it is suitable for electrical and mechanical appliances, as well as food processing equipment.

Compared to abrasive blasting, dry ice blasting does not produce fine particles, dust or smoke. Therefore, it is ideal for delicate surfaces that cannot withstand abrasive sandblasting.

Dry ice can clean hard-to-reach surfaces, such as between gaps and between large metal parts. Plus, it’s a quick and effective method to remove stubborn sticky buildup. In addition, it allows for more frequent cleaning, and therefore a longer service life of the equipment.

Three factors influence the effectiveness of the dry ice blasting procedure:

1- the thermal conductivity of the contaminant*,

2- the firing power (pressure and volume) which communicates kinetic energy to the dry ice. This causes pollution shear.

3- Sublimation or the passage of ice from a solid state to a gaseous state which, with the help of compressed air, literally blows away pollution.

*: For example, if the contaminant has a high thermal conductivity, the efficiency of the process will be reduced. On the other hand, if the contaminant has a low thermal conductivity, the efficiency will be increased.
