Dry ice blasting, just like many other forms of media blasting mostly referred to as “sandblasting,” works by using compressed air and dry ice. We at nexAir provide answers to your questions: What is dry ice blasting? Why is it practical, and what are the benefits of using dry ice blasting?
What is Dry Ice Blasting?
Dry ice blasting is a non-damaging method of cleaning and getting rid of unwanted materials like paint or dirt on surfaces. It’s widely used industrially and commercially with dry ice as the cleaning agent. Dry ice is carbon dioxide in its solid form at a temperature of -78 degrees Celsius. It entails cleaning a surface with dry ice pellets and compressed air.

- A Non-Abrasive, Non-Conductive, and Dry Process: Dry ice pellets vaporize immediately. Once they touch the surface to be cleaned, they turn to gas, leaving no residue. Dry ice cleaning is a dry process, so pieces of equipment that are easily damaged or broken can be cleaned easily. The reduction in the value of such equipment is avoided since surfaces are treated gently. With nexAir KnowHow, staff will be trained on how to carry out the cleaning process gently.
- No Waste Disposal: Cleaning with dry ice leaves no waste products, only the remains of the original unwanted materials and contaminants are removed after the cleaning process.
- Personnel Safety: Staff are not exposed to harmful chemicals and by-products. Dry ice blasting is completely non-toxic and does not produce any harmful by-products nor does it contribute to green house effects making it also environmentally friendly.
