Dry Ice Cleaning
What is Dry Ice Cleaning?
Dry Ice Cleaning is a unique industrial cleaning method that uses specialized equipment to mix dry ice (solid carbon dioxide) pellets with compressed air. The compressed air accelerates the dry ice pellets through a blast hose. The pellets exit the hose near supersonic speeds and impact the surface. Upon impact the dry ice pellets convert to a gas and the rapid gas expansion of CO2 facilitates the removal of the surface contaminates.
Dry ice cleaning is non-abrasive, non- flammable, non-conductive, environmentally friendly, and approved by the EPA, FDA, and USDA.
