IceTech: What are the benefits of dry ice blasting?
Dry ice blasting is a revolutionary blasting method that replaces traditional cleaning. In contrast to other blasting methods, dry ice cleaning leaves behind zero secondary waste. One of the hidden costs associated with other blasting methods is the cleanup afterward. Dry ice blasting equipment utilizes dry ice pellets that turn into gas (sublimate) upon contact which helps reduce waste disposal.
Cleaning equipment with dry ice gives operators the ability to clean while parts remain online at operating temperature. This helps reduce, and in some case eliminate maintenance downtime due to cleaning.
The cost to replace damaged equipment due to abrasive maintenance can be eliminated with dry ice cleaning. Dry ice blasting is a non-abrasive cleaning method, so wear and tear due to maintenance can be avoided.
