The dry ice cleaning technology provides a complete, entirely dry (no water) and efficient cleaning process for products, machinery, equipment, or production.
The process is customisable to the working area. The cleaning technology is subdivided into dry ice and dry snow cleaning. Dry snow is used for cleaning delicate surfaces. Dry ice is crushed into smaller pieces (size from 0.2 mm to 1.6 mm) and lower pressure is used (from 1.5 bar to 6 bar).
Dry ice is used for cleaning stubborn dirt on less delicate surfaces. The particle size of 3 mm and pressure from 5 to 14 bar is used. In the most demanding cleaning processes, the dry ice particles are accelerated by means of compressed air (up to 14 bar) to the ultrasonic speeds (1300 km/h). The particles hit the surface covered in dirt, providing highly efficient cleaning with three effects.
Dry ice cleaning shortens the cleaning process, having a direct impact on costs and productivity, since the production lines and devices usually do not need to be disassembled, protected, and reassembled. In most cases, the equipment is cleaned on the spot.
Given that the process is completely dry, it can be used for all electrical and mechanical devices. These can be immediately restarted after the cleaning. The method is non-abrasive. No secondary or chemical waste is produced in the cleaning process, so the method can be used on delicate and vital device/machine components.
Dry ice has many advantages compared to other blasting media:
The dry ice cleaning process is the most environmentally friendly technology. Recycled carbon dioxide (CO2), a by-product of chemical processes, is used in the production of dry ice. Dry ice is used for cleaning purposes and it does not pollute our environment in the process.
The dry ice cleaning method, with its specific characteristics, is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution.
