Dry ice-blasting is used as a method of cleaning strongly contaminated machines and machine parts. This blasting method is based on the principle of using dry ice pellets which are a propelled onto a surface at very high speeds using a dry ice blasting machine, in order to clean it.
Dry ice-blasting works based on three effects:
- Pellet kenetic energy
- Thermal shock effect
The advantages are:
- Very fast and effective, even in the smallest nook and crannies
- No harmful chemical additives are used
