What is Dry Ice Blasting?

Dry Ice Blasting, or Cryogenic Cleaning, is a safe non-destructive cleaning process which requires blasting a surface with compressed air and dry ice particles, usually in the form of CO2 pellets. The amalgamation of pressurised air and the presence of dry ice is a far more advanced method in cleaning as the unwanted contaminate freezes and sheds until the surface is clear. Commonly used for industrial, residential, and commercial applications from paint, smoke damage, grease, and oils to other unwanted coatings like rust, in an efficient manner.

This allows for cleaning the intended area in a non-destructive way when compared with other media blasting methods such as, sand blasting. Dry Ice Blasting can clean without surface erosion; this will have a dramatic saving in hours and the costs in relation to otherwise hazardous chemical substances.

Dry ice blasting is safe around electrical components- there is no need to cover electrical cables or appliances as this method is free-from moisture.

Typical Dry Ice Blasting Scenarios

  • Removal of bitumen-based products
  • Clearing of stubborn paint, grease and rust
  • Cleaning away unwanted coatings

How Long Does Dry Ice Blasting Take?

Speed is the name of the game when it comes to Dry Ice Blasting, which is why it’s a leading choice with Vinci Response Services. The process occurs in three stages:

Shock – The initial thermal shock when we begin the blasting process, results in a rapid freeze of the surface pollutants causing them to brittle away and fracture.

Impact – Minuscule pellets of dry ice attack the contaminants immediately breaking up the crackled coatings from the shock stage.

Expansion – A small explosion takes place caused by the instant expansion of gas due to the rapid transfer of heat and vaporisation of dry ice. Combining this with the impact of the dry ice pellets then knocks away the debris, coatings, or stains. This three-step process happens in milliseconds making the process a breeze.

We can even clean machinery in situ meaning you can still be in operation during cleaning to keep downtime to a minimum.
