The Advantages of Dry Ice Blasting over Sand Blasting

For large equipment and machinery that has been affected by dirt, rust and other contaminants, technologies that use industrial cleaning materials, such as dry ice blasting and sand blasting, can provide an effective cleaning solution. However, these two cleaning methods are not created equal - dry ice blasting is a technologically-advanced process that produces a non-abrasive, superior clean that reduces the frequency of routine cleanings, decreases downtime and reduces future costs.

While sand blasting, a process during which abrasive industrial cleaning materials are quickly propelled at equipment, can be useful for purposely roughening a smooth surface, dry ice blasting can simply and effectively remove contaminants without damaging equipment. Sand blasting materials can also become lodged in tight spaces during the cleaning process, while dry ice evaporates as it hits the surface, cleaning hard-to-reach cavities without trapping media or creating secondary waste.

Comparing Industrial Cleaning Materials: Dry Ice vs. Sand

It's important to research the many forms of industrial cleaning materials on the market. Knowing the specific benefits of each method, including dry ice blasting, sand blasting, soda blasting and more, will help you to choose what's best for your equipment and your company's bottom line.

Dry ice blasting is usually the preferred option for clients who need a fast, thorough cleaning solution - the nonabrasive, EPA-approved process can effectively remove contaminants of all kinds, while providing a safe, non-toxic environment for operators and employees. Sand blasting materials, on the other hand, produce a secondary waste that not only requires more cleanup and downtime, but also creates fugitive dust clouds that can be harmful to both humans and nearby equipment or parts.
