How does our dry ice blasting equipment work? Our dry ice cleaning system is incredibly effective, and we’ll tell you why.
When we clean your application, the frigid temperature of the dry ice pellets (-78.5°C or -109.3°F) is blasted at a high velocity through a blasting nozzle, using compressed air that hits the surface of the material. This causes a micro-thermal shock between the surface contaminate and the substrate. The substrate, which is warmer, causes the dry ice to convert back into a harmless CO2 gas. The gas expands to nearly 800 times the volume of the original pellet and the surface contaminate is lifted by the CO2 from behind, falling away from the surface. Since the dry ice has now evaporated (CO2 gas), the only clean up that remains with our highly-effective dry ice cleaning solutions is the contaminate, which can easily be swept away!
