Dry ice blasting is an alternative cleaning method to sand or soda blasting that reduces labor costs, is non-abrasive and environmentally friendly as it uses no harmful chemicals and leaves no secondary media to clean up. Dry ice blast cleaning works effectively in many industries including: tire manufacturing, automotive suppliers, dry food processing, plastics manufacturers, and mold restoration. Common applications include cleaning injection molds, paint booths, weld slag, and removing mold and soot residue.
As the Single Source Advantage for the dry ice blasting industry, Continental Carbonic sells, rents and leases a comprehensive line of dry ice blasting machines and sells the highest quality dry ice pellets and cut block throughout the eastern two-thirds of the United States and Ontario, Canada. In addition, the highly experienced Continental Carbonic sales team offers customized training and support for dry ice blasting customers.
"Dry ice blasting provides an excellent return on investment and an environmentally friendly method of cleaning that helps companies with their sustainability efforts," said Kurt Rudsinski, Vice President of Blasting at Continental Carbonic, "We are very pleased with our 2012 results and will continue to provide the industry's highest level of customer service in 2013."
