The main advantages are:

  • Generates up-time: substantially reducing downtime by eliminating the need to strip down and reassemble machinery parts.
  • Eliminates the need for detergents or chemicals to degrease.
  • Is non-abrasive compared to sand and grit blasting or cleaning with brushes.
  • Environmentally friendly: the removal of stubborn contaminated layers without generating waste (the dry ice simply disappears)
  • Compact and versatile: the cleaning equipment can be taken to the large object to be cleaned, not the other way round.  
  • Dry Ice Cleaning can be used anywhere where water, sand or other cleaning products are not allowed: Dry Ice Blasting is a suitable technique for use on electrical machines and in the food industry.

Dry ice pellets turn 100% to gas on impact, which means that only the original contaminant is left for disposal. This natural evaporation of dry ice pellets is a major advantage of the dry ice cleaning method.
