Dry Ice Cleaning services use a non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-abrasive, non-static, and non-explosive cleaning medium.
As a cleaning method, Dry Ice Blasting uses revolutionary technology being introduced into the Australian market.
Dry Ice Blasting is similar to sand or water pressure blasting methods. Ice pellets are blasted at high speeds using compressed air to clean the surface required. The results are instant; the ice pellets melt on impact and leave no residue. The versatility of the unit means we can get into all sorts of difficult areas to clean.
Dry Ice Cleaning saves thousands in time and money as it uses minimal staffing. The results speak for themselves.
Dry ice blasting involves propelling pellets at extremely high speeds. The actual dry ice pellets are quite soft, and much less dense than other media used in blast-cleaning (i.e. sand or plastic pellets). Upon impact, the pellet sublimates almost immediately, transferring minimal kinetic energy to the surface on impact and producing minimal abrasion. The sublimation process absorbs a large volume of heat from the surface, producing shear stresses due to thermal shock. This is assumed to improve cleaning as the top layer of dirt or contaminant is expected to transfer more heat than the underlying substrate and flake off more easily. The efficiency and effectiveness of this process depends on the thermal conductivity of the substrate and contaminant. The rapid change in state from solid to gas also causes microscopic shock waves, which are also thought to assist in removing the contaminant.
