If you’re looking for a cleaning method that is non-abrasive, dry ice blasting is the choice for you. Dry ice blasting offers an alternative cleaning method that won’t scratch, damage, or leave a profile on the surface you are cleaning. You can adjust how much blasting dry ice and how much pressure you want to use, making it as gentle or as tough as you need.
Other advantages dry ice blasting has over sandblasting are that it does not create any secondary waste and it is safer for your employees to use because they aren’t breathing in harmful dust sandblasting creates. That’s right; you have little to no cleanup after you clean! As soon as the dry ice hits the surface it is being blasted against, it turns back into a gas or sublimates (as described in our Back to the Basics post). Therefore, you save time and labor costs by not having to reclaim used blasting media. This makes blasting dry ice a much more convenient, efficient, economical cleaning method.
Plus, one of the best perks to using dry ice blasting is that it can be safely used on a wide variety of applications, including electrical items and machinery. It can also be used to get to those hard-to-reach places without having to disassemble and/or move your equipment thanks to our wide variety of nozzles.
Dry ice blasting could very well offer a safer, easier, and more convenient option for your cleaning needs than sandblasting could. So for your next job, consider Continental Carbonic Products, Inc. as your single source advantage for dry ice blasting!
