Dry ice blasting is a state-of-the-art cleaning method that can save time and money — typically the cleanup can be accomplished in one third the time of traditional cleaning methods and, even more important, the cleaning job is more thorough, especially in hard to reach places.

Powerful, non-destructive blast cleaning with minimal cleanup

Dry ice cleaning uses recycled CO2 in the form of solid dry ice particles as the cleaning media. There are a range of intensity settings available, depending on the application, ranging from deep, powerful surface cleaning to extremely fine settings for jobs requiring light cleaning. Dry ice is non-abrasive to most surfaces and can be used around delicate components, including electronics, which would be damaged by water or solvents. Dry ice turns to a gas after contact with the surface being cleaned — clean-up time is kept to a minimum and there is no waste material to dispose of.
