Dry Ice Blasting Florida

What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Dry Ice Blasting is a form of carbon dioxide cleaning, where dry ice, the solid form of carbon dioxide, is accelerated in a pressurized air stream and directed at a surface in order to clean it.

The method is similar to other forms of media blasting such as sand blasting, plastic bead blasting, or sodablasting in that it cleans surfaces using a media accelerated in a pressurized air stream, but dry ice blasting uses dry ice as the blasting medium. Dry ice blasting is nonabrasive, non-conductive, nonflammable, and non-toxic.

Dry ice blasting is an environmentally responsible cleaning method. Dry ice is made of reclaimed carbon dioxide that is produced from other industrial processes, does not add additional greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, and is an approved media by the EPA, FDA and USDA. It also reduces or eliminates employee exposure to the use of chemical cleaning agents.

Compared to other media blasting methods, dry ice blasting does not create secondary waste or chemical residues as dry ice sublimates, or converts back to a gaseous state, when it hits the surface that is being cleaned. Dry ice blasting does not require clean-up of a blasting medium. The waste products,which includes just the dislodged media, can be swept up, vacuumed or washed away depending on the containment.

Dry Ice Blasting is used in the following industries:

  • Food Processing and Manufacturing – Equipment, ovens, conveyors, slicers
  • Beverage Processing – product applicators, packaging, conveyors
  • Plant Maintenance – removal of; oils, film, glues, ink, grease, mold, resins, adhesives
  • Plastics – molds, packaging equipment, ovens, mixers
  • Printing – removal of inks in print machines
  • Restoration – fire/mold.
  • Art work – statues
  • Electronics – circuitry, boards, panels
  • Aerospace – degreasing, oil removal
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Packaging
  • Electric Power
  • Natural Gas

We utilize Dry Ice Cleaning because it:

  • Increases uptime through cleaning in-place (CIP) - Being that it can be performed on-line without disassembly the process is fast. No need for drying time.
  • CO2 blasting cleans without damaging the surface - Dry ice blasting is non-abrasive. It quickly removes most contaminates without damage to switches, panels, lines, tubes, wiring or belts
  • Reduces or eliminates the need for hazardous solvents - Dry Ice Blasting takes place of chemical or solvent based cleaning and labor intensive manual scrapping.
  • Quicker and more thorough than cleaning by hand - Get a more detailed and quicker clean with CO2 by getting into tight spaced areas inaccessible by hand
  • Safe for electrical componentsCO2 blasting cleans heavy industrial build up without damage to ultra-sensitive areas like electrical components, photo electric sensors, switches, wiring, etc.
  • Dry ice blasting is the preferred method when adding water is not an option to clean.

Dry Ice Blasting is the Safest, Most Requested, and Cleanest Process being performed in many industrial applications.

  • Dry ice is approved by the FDA, EPA, and USDA. It is non-toxic, non-hazardous and kills 100% of mold & bacteria growth.
  • Dry ice blasting is highly recommended for cleaning food processing equipment and, of course, many other industries.
  • There are NO harmful off-gases released into the environment with dry ice blasting.
  • Dry ice blasting doesn’t produce secondary waste.
  • Dry ice blasting is non-toxic and safe. When dry ice impacts the substrate, they dissipate into the air
  • Dry ice blasting has NO harsh chemicals. When Harsh chemicals are the primary use for cleaning, it can cause skin-related conditions – dermatitis and eczema, for example, or very serious problems like respiratory conditions, including asthma.
  • When Harsh chemicals are the primary use for cleaning, it can cause skin-related conditions – dermatitis and eczema, for example, or very serious problems like respiratory conditions, including asthma.
  • Dry ice blasting eliminates liability from your business from these chemicals.
  • Chemicals and/or solvent cleaning are toxic, this creates toxic waste that needs to be disposed of.
  • Dry ice blasting is Completely Environmentally Friendly.
  • Dry ice blasting is obtained as a byproduct from different industrial processes – it is created from reclaimed CO2. It does not produce CO2 and it does not put CO2 into the atmosphere. This means it does not contribute to today’s greenhouse effect.
