Dry ice blasting is growing in popularity every year as more and more businesses realize what an effective cleaning method it is. Dry ice blasting is designed to use small pellets of dry ice (about the size of a grain of rice) and a jet nozzle, along with compressed air, to clean off surfaces large and small. Dry ice blasting works similarly to sandblasting or high-pressure steam blasting. Dry ice blasting is so effective because the cold temperature of the ice blasts against the material that needs to be removed, shrinks it (thanks to the chill), and leaves the remaining surface untouched. Why is dry ice blasting a great choice for your business?
Instead of Sandblasting
Sandblasting is another common cleaning technique, but dry ice blasting wins the face-off. Dry ice is so soft that it will not pit or damage the surface that you are cleaning like sandblasting will. As a result, it will not do any harm to equipment or surfaces like other cleaning methods. Traditional cleaning methods often leave equipment and surfaces damaged from bumping, dropping, or harsh cleaners. If you need a gentle but effective clean, dry ice blasting is your best bet.
Instead of Steam Blasting
Dry ice blasting is more effective than steam blasting because it can be used on electrical parts and generators without needing more than minimal downtime. If you are removing radioactive contaminants, you will not need to use large storage containers for the contaminated water to be removed. Mildew and mold removal work much more efficiently (and with a lower chance of the mold growing back) with dry ice blasting as well.
Cut Out Environmental Damage
Last, but definitely not least, dry ice blasting replaces more environmentally-damaging cleaners at your workplace. Instead of using harsh solvents to clean up, use dry ice blasting and help to save your workplace equipment and the environment.
