DRY ICE and dry ice cleaning

Dry ice cleaning is a COMPLETELY DRY and water-less process, which is an upgrade of traditional techniques and replaces blasting, high-pressure washing and steam cleaning.

Our dry ice cleaning services are used by:

Dry ice cleaning

We perform professional cleaning of the most sensitive components of process equipment (production and packaging lines, electronics, electrical cabinets, installations, sensors, molds, tools, mixers…)!

Fast and efficient

Production is clean again without downtime and 80% faster

Use dry ice for the hardest to reach places without disassembling your equipment!

Advantages of dry ice cleaning

The machines can also be cleaned during operation, and they can be run immediately after the service is completed.

Why dry ice cleaning?

When it comes to stubborn dirt, burns or sensitive electronics, dry ice cleaning is the BEST option.

This technology does not contaminate the environment, and production can be run immediately after the cleaning. See: DRY ICE – BEST CASE STUDIES OF CLEANED SURFACES (click).

Working principle

This is a high-pressure cleaning process (up to 16 bar). Compressed air accelerates dry ice particles to supersonic speeds, meaning the particles strike the surface with high kinetic energy.

The surface freezes in an instant and microcracks are formed in the contaminant. The dry ice particles sublime away after impacting the surface, causing micro-explosions which blow the loosened dirt away from the surface.

Dry ice in the automotive industry

Use cases:

  • cleaning of welding robots and welding tables
  • cleaning of vapour incinerators
  • conveyor chains and belts in painting and drying chambers
  • cleaning of foundry tools (for grey cast iron and aluminium)
  • cleaning of plastic and rubber injection molding tools
  • heat exchangers (thermal wheels, heaters, refrigerators)
  • electrical and communication cabinets (robot cabinets, locator cabinets, SOP, MOP)

What do customers think?

“We wish to thank Blast Tehnik for suggesting us to use dry ice. We achieved immediate results and saved a lot of time and money. Our plastic injection moulding machines and moulds are now regularly impeccably clean. This allows us to ensure constant product quality and much easier tool maintenance.”

How do dry ice cleaning machines work?

Dry ice machines running on compressed air emit carbon dioxide pellets at supersonic speeds. As they strike the surface, these pellets/particles sublime away, removing dirt and contaminants. The surface thus remains dry and becomes impeccably clean without secondary waste.
