Dry Ice Blasting

Dry ice blasting is a revolutionary blasting method that uses dry ice pellets as the blasting material. The actual dry-ice pellets are quite soft, and much less dense than other media used in blast-cleaning. The process is very environmentally friendly and provides a fast and effective alternative to traditional methods of cleaning industrial production equipment. It 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. Dry-ice blasting leaves no chemical residue as dry ice sublimates at room temperature. Through this process smoke and soot are eliminated from most surfaces. In this photo, dry ice blasting was being used to restore the wood foundation of a home that caught on fire.
