Dry ice cleaning
Cleanliness without side effects thanks to dry ice cleaning
Dry ice cleaning is a procedure which produces only minimal side effects in comparison to other blasting methods. A dry ice cleaning session leaves only the detached grime, which can be vacuumed, swept up or flushed away without difficulty. Dry ice cleaning does not cause damages on the surfaces of the cleaned material and there is no accumulation of spent grit. The used grit sublimates into natural gases like they occur in breathable air. The result of a dry ice cleaning is a visibly clean surface even in tough cases.
Dry ice cleaning – high tech in blast technology
Dry ice cleaning is a method of many advantages. Out of all cleaning methods, it is the most gentle and versatile procedure, which also always guarantees best results and excludes consequential damages. Dry ice cleaning works without harsh chemicals, without the use of water, with lowest temperatures and without finely dispersed grit. Dry ice cleaning shoots pellets made of frozen carbon dioxide at high pressure. The 3mm long grains have a temperature of -80°C. Upon contact with the contaminated surface, they immediately blast any undesirable adhesions. After that, dry ice cleaning really shows what it can do: immediately after contact with the warmer surface the pellet evaporates explosively. The resulting pressure additionally acts as a shockwave against the unwanted grime. Finally, the low temperature of the dry ice results in an embrittlement of the adhesions. This leads to dry ice cleaning being the method of choice in areas where other methods are forced to forfeit.
Where others give up, we’re just beginning
What do you think happens if you try to clean contaminated power cables with a sandblaster? Or if a circuit board is blasted by a high pressure cleaner? What remains if a plastic car body is supposed to be stripped of paint by harsh solvents? Or if delicate equipment is cleaned with hot vapour pressure? The result is always the same – the attempt at cleaning results in the complete destruction of the object in question. The case is entirely different when it comes to dry ice cleaning: No matter if it’s a car body, a computer component, cables, machines, tools and moulds or cap pieces and synthetic material – dry ice cleaning leaves everything sparkling clean.
