Ice Blasting is similar to sand-blasting or soda-blasting in that a medium is accelerated in a pressurized air stream to impact a surface to be cleaned or prepared but that is where the similarity ends. Instead of using a hard abrasive to grind on a surface (and damage it), Ice Blasting uses soft–ice pellets accelerated at supersonic speed, creating ‘mini-explosions’ that lift the undesirable deposits from the underlying substrate.
Why is it superior to conventional methods?
No secondary waste clean-up = Less mess = Less expense.
Clean equipment in place. No disassembly or reassembly.
It is Non-Abrasive, Non-Flammable, Non-Conductive and safe to use on electrical units.
Environmentally friendly: meets FDA, USDA and EPA guidelines.
The softer media will not damage substrates like other methods can.
The service is compact to set up and this equals less manpower and greater cost savings.
This superior cleaning method leads to fewer cleaning cycles and less downtime.
This process is clean enough for the food industry and strong enough for everything else.
