We pride ourselves in always striving to provide the best and most innovative industrial steam cleaners and industrial conveyor belt cleaners, but we’re particularly proud of our new dry ice blasting equipment.
Dry ice blasting uses the solid form of carbon dioxide, also known CO2 blasting, is a method of cleaning in which a pressurized air stream of the CO2 is directed at a surface in order to clean it.Essentially, small dry ice pellets are literally blasted at high speeds onto surfaces or equipment in order to transfer kinetic energy and create a sublimation process producing shear stresses due to thermal shock. This dispels dirt and contaminants from said surface leaving it clean afterwards.
Dry ice blasting produces a high temperature, low moisture vapor, which contains only 5% to 6% water and is much less dense than the air we breathe. This results in minimal surface abrasion, which means no need to worry about damaging or affecting the integrity of the surface you’re trying to clean.
The cleaning industry generates more than $168 billion in annual revenue around the world and for good reason. People don’t want to get themselves or customers sick or risk contaminating their goods, products, or services due to uncleanliness. In fact, each year, one in six Americans gets sick by consuming contaminated foods or beverages, according to the CDC. One of the most popular uses for dry ice blasting equipment is in the food processing environment.
It can be incredibly difficult to reach all the various parts of food processing equipment to ensure that all areas are being properly cleaned, but with dry ice blasting, those concerns vanish. In addition to being able to practically reach every part of a surface, dry ice blasting has been proven to effectively decontaminate surfaces of Salmonella enteritidis, E. coli, and Listeria monocytogenes.
This is just one of the important areas where our dry ice blasting equipment can be a real game changer. No matter what your business though, chances are that keeping clean is a big part of it and this type of unique equipment can help you do just that.
