Dry Ice Blasting Technology

Dry Ice Blasting : So how does it all work? What makes dry ice blasting such an effective cleaning service?

We utilize a process called sublimation: the process of a solid evaporating directly into a gaseous form, skipping the liquid stage altogether.

Our equipment stores dry ice pellets at a frigid temperature (-78.5°C or -109.3°F) and them shoots them out of a high-velocity blasting nozzle. When the pellets hit a warmer surface in need of cleaning, they evaporate into harmless CO2, triggering microscopic explosions in the process. Any contaminate on the surface is lifted by the sudden expansion of CO2 fumes, and falls away. After the dry ice evaporates, only the contaminant and the surface (now clean and dry) remain. From there, contaminants can be easily swept, wiped, or sprayed away.

The Cold Jet Dry Ice Cleaning System

We only use Cold Jet dry ice cleaning systems. Cold Jet is a pioneer in dry ice cleaning technology. They are responsible for the first single hose dry ice dispersal system. Older, two hose systems, contained separate hoses for compressed air and dry ice, resulting in a less powerful stream and limiting the distance between operator and cleaning surface.

Cold Jet's single hose system is considerably more powerful, adept at removing heavier buildup, and removes any distance limitations.

We also use Cold Jet's Application Specific Nozzle Technology, allowing for targeted and precise nozzle control, while enabling different spray concentrations for unique blasting situations.

All of our technicians are trained and experienced in Cold Jet dry ice blasting technology, and have been certified by Cold Jet itself.

Safe, Clean, and Environmentally Friendly

Safety is always an important factor, and here are a few reasons why dry ice cleaning solutions are the safest option for your industry:
  • Approved by the EPA, USDA & FDA
  • Inhibits future mold and bacteria growth
  • Effectively used in AIB and GFSI inspected/certified facilities
  • Safe to use with food processing equipment
  • Completely safe around electrical equipment
  • Only releases harmless Carbon Dioxide
  • Non-abrasive and non-toxic
  • Does not generate secondary waste
  • Reduces or eliminates exposure to (and corporate liability from) the use of dangerous chemical cleaning agents and solvents
  • No equipment disassembly necessary, saving potential employee injury
