WHY DRY ICE BLASTING?

Cold Jet® dry ice blasting (or CO2 blasting) is a fast, easy and cost-effective cleaning method that uses high-velocity dry ice (or solid CO2) pellets to clean surfaces without damaging equipment or creating new waste streams.

Because of the temperature difference between the dry ice particles (-109°Fahrenheit / -78.3°Centigrade) and the surface being treated, thermal shock occurs during the dry ice blasting process. This breaks down the bond between the substrate and the contaminant to be removed from it. The dry ice vaporizes on impact, so no secondary waste stream is created.

A number of industries worldwide have discovered the advantages of this precision cleaning process. Applications range from heavy slag removal to delicate semiconductor and circuit board cleaning.

Dry ice blasting by Cold Jet® lets you:

  • remove adhesives, lubricants, paints and other substances from products and equipment without damaging the substrate
  • clean assembled components and equipment, eliminating teardown/rebuild time
  • reduce hazardous waste streams by replacing chemical solvents
  • improve maintenance of sensors and computer components, tooling, hot ovens, conveyor rollers, spray booths and more
  • manage downtime by cleaning your equipment on line

Cold Jetting is a dry, nonabrasive, non-conductive process that leaves no residual media to clean up. It’s the pure and powerful solution for your cleaning and maintenance needs.
