What is Dry Ice Blasting?
Dry Ice Blasting is a safe, non-destructive cleaning process that involves 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 contaminates freeze and then sheds until the surface is clear.
This allows our technicians to clean the intended area in a non-destructive way when compared with other industrial cleaning methods, such as sandblasting.
Typical Dry Ice Blasting Scenarios
Dry ice blasting is 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.
- Removal of bitumen-based products
- Clearing of stubborn paint, grease and rust
- Cleaning away unwanted coatings
How Long Does Vinci Response’s Dry Ice Blasting Services 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.
