Advantages of Dry Ice Blasting


Just like shot blasting and soda blasting, dry ice blasting is also a form of abrasive blasting. We can also say that dry ice blasting is a non-abrasive cleaning method since dry ice is a solid form of carbon dioxide. It can also be called dry ice cleaning, CO2 blasting, and dry ice dusting. 


The working principle for dry ice blasting is accelerated in a pressurized air stream and hit the surface under high pressure to clean the surface.



Advantages of using dry ice blasting:


1.     Fast and effective

One of the advantages of dry ice blasting is that it leaves no blasting media on chains and drives. Therefore, people do not need to spend much time cleaning machines. Dry ice blasting also adopts extremely high cleaning speeds and a wide range of nozzles, which means it can clean items that normally are inaccessible easily and rapidly.


2.     Improved production quality

Other advantages of dry ice blasting are the production quality is improved. While the dry ice blasting process, the production equipment can also be cleaned. In this case, there is no need to spend too much time on production downtime for dismantling or cleaning. 


3.     Environmentally friendly

When we talk about the advantage of one abrasive blasting method, environmentally friendly always become one of the reasons why people want to use it. For dry ice blasting, it contains no harmful chemicals like silica, and or soda. Therefore, it is a completely non-toxic method for people to use.  



4.     No waste disposal

While the process of dry ice blasting, there are no waste products. The only thing that needs to be disposed of or cleaned is the contaminant that has been removed from the items. And it is easy to remove this contaminant, it can be swept or vacuumed from the floor quickly.


5.     Lower cost

Compare with other forms of abrasive blasting methods, dry ice blasting needs lower costs. This is because dry ice blasting can clean production equipment quickly and effectively while in process. So, the downtime is reduced. Since the production equipment can be cleaned frequently, it reduces the extra cycle for final products. Thus, the expense would be reduced. 


6.     Safety

Dry ice blasting is also a safe blasting method for people to use since it is a completely dry process. This means the electrical equipment and wiring can be cleaned without damage.


To sum up, there are many reasons for people to choose dry ice blasting when they need to remove unwanted contaminants from a surface.
