Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting is a process whereby kinetic and thermal energy is transferred when the accelerated dry ice pellets strike the surface being cleaned. Dry ice and air combine to remove the unwanted material and leave a clean surface free of any contaminant.
1. Kinetic Effect
2. Thermal Effect
4. After Blasting
Dry ice pellets are accelerated by compressed air to high speeds, fracturing the top layer of dirt and residue. The thermal difference helps to separate the dirt and residue from the substrate.
After the dry ice makes its initial impact, it instantaneously turns from a solid to a gas. The volume expansion (by a factor of 700) causes a micro explosion that detaches the dirt/residue from the substrate. The substrate is clean, dry and completely intact. We supply the 3mm pellets that you need for this process.
