Dry Ice Blasting
Sodablast.ca is pleased to announce we now offer mobile Dry Ice Blasting to compliment our full line of Mobile Media Blasting & Specialty Cleaning Services.
Dry Ice, or CO 2Blasting, is a cleaning process using solid CO 2pellets rather than a dry media. When blasted, the dry ice pellets sublimate when they hit the surface to be cleaned. That is, they convert directly from a solid blast pellet to a gas, leaving a clean, dry surface, with no residue. Dry ice blasting can be utilized in the food processing, disaster restoration and manufacturing industries as well as many more areas where cleanliness is required without the mess of dry blasting or without water from washing. Dry ice blasting drastically reduces or eliminates dust containment and debris disposal issues, however, there are some caveats.
Dry ice is a great cleaning tool and effectively removes production residues, oils, release agents, biofilms, paints, contaminants and more. For cleaning of machinery, food equipment, electronic equipment, etc it is great - no mess, no dust, but it is more expensive than traditional medias. Note that dry ice is very slow at removing coatings, and therefore is not a great paint removal tool. It also won't remove rust. For blast removal of paint and rust, we offer other options depending on your requirements.
