Dry ice cleaning of SÜDSTRAHL


In the dry ice cleaning process, dry ice is used as a blasting abrasive. Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide (CO2) and -78.4 °C cold. Due to this extreme coldness of the dry ice pellets, the dirt is shock-frozen in seconds, causing mirco-cracks in the contamination. The pallets are accelerated enormously by dry ice cleaning devices in combination with compressed air and penetrate through the cracks into the pollution. Due to the pressure of the accelerated abrasive and the resulting cold shock detach the dirt particles from the surface to be cleaned. After dry ice cleaning, only the removed dirt remains, as the dry ice completely sublimated into CO2-shaped gas into the environment.



Cleaning with dry ice - your advantages

Dry ice cleaning is a particularly gentle process for sensitive objects or surfaces and can extend their service life. In addition, the blasting process can be adapted to the properties of the workpiece to be cleaned by adjusting the pressure, the amount of ice and the size of the ice grain. In abrasive procedures with hard abrasives, such as sandblasting, the surface is roughened to remove the dirt and, in contrast to dry ice cleaning, damaged. Dry ice cleaning is one of the most environmentally friendly cleaning methods. No chemicals are used and no harmful vapours are produced. In addition, there are no residues of the abrasive that need to be disposed of. Furthermore, cleaning with dry ice is recommended for industries where abrasives, in which sand or water cannot be used or are even prohibited by law, suitable. Due to the temperature of the dry ice, this cleaning method is antibacterial and suitable for the care sector and the food industry. Additionally, the dry ice is odorless, non-flammable or conductive.


Another advantage of dry ice blasting is its low cost, which can be achieved as follows:


  • Fast effective procedure that does not require system downtime
  • Mobile cleaning method, no disassembly of the item to be cleaned and access to hard-to-reach areas
  • Hot tool can be cleaned directly without cooling (cleaning time can even be shortened)
