Dry Ice Blasting Equipment
Dry Ice Blasting Equipment for a fast and lasting cleanliness
Dry ice blasting equipment is the answer to persistent types of grime and the kind of coating that can only be efficiently cleaned by abrasive cleaning agents. Dried paint, firmed up dust, rust or hardened grease from machines – items sullied by these types of grime used to only be able to be cleaned with great effort. Often the cleaned items would additionally be irreparably damaged after the treatment. Dry ice blasting equipment is gentle to your product and tough on dirt.
The effect of dry ice blasting equipment: beam, flash-freeze, embrittle, blast
Regular jet cleaners blast a blasting material onto a surface. Like this, the adhering grime is mechanically removed. It doesn’t matter if it’s a pressure cleaner that only projects water or a sandblaster that blasts with a mixture of air and granules, the underlying principle stays the same. Dry ice blasting equipment on the other hand takes four kinds of effect against dirt:
The blasting material of our dry ice blasting equipment is frozen CO². Depending on the dry ice blasting equipment, the pellets are shot onto the surface at a temperature of – 80° C with a pressure of 1 to 16 bar. Initially, the 3mm sized pellets of frozen carbon dioxide work like regular blasting material. Particularly loose adhesions are already blown away during this step.
At the moment of contact with the surface a heat exchange takes place. The pellet heats up and the adhesion embrittles. The rapid flash-freezing of the dirt causes it to contract. Like this, more dirt particles lose their hold on the surface. The remaining adhesions embrittle further and thus lose their elasticity. This is the point where the blasting effect of the pellet can take place. The CO² rapidly assumes its gaseous aggregation state upon heating up and grows almost 700 times in volume. The explosive pressure removes the remaining frozen and embrittled dirt particles from the surface at this point. During this process, the material of the surface itself remains undamaged.
Dry ice blasting equipment – one process for all kinds of grime
Dry ice blasting equipment can be applied to practically all types of dirt. Its use may not always be what immediately comes to mind, but dry ice blasting equipment basically guarantees a clean result in all cases without side effects. The main area of use for dry ice cleaning equipment is industrial cleaning. In the area of car maintenance, dry ice blasting equipment is also getting more popular. No other device allows it to clean the car body, engine bay, undercarriage and even the interior including the upholstery. Dry ice blasting equipment proves itself to be especially efficient at removing old dirt from the undercarriage. Dry ice blasting equipment also produces miraculous results in and around the house: removing graffiti, deep cleaning old roof beams, cleaning parquet flooring or wooden ceilings, ensuring that the front looks like new – dry ice blasting equipment produces results that used to be only possible by demolishing and reconstructing the entire house.
