How Dry Ice Blasting Works

How Dry Ice Blasting Works:

1.Impact of pellets creates a kinetic energy effect. The soft dry ice is accelerated by compressed air through specially designed nozzles at supersonic speeds.


2. Cold temperature of dry ice pellets creates a thermal effect. The temperature of dry ice causes the contaminant to embrittle. This helps break the bond between the substrate and the contaminant.


3. Expansion of the dry ice pellets . Dry ice pellets sublimate upon impact, volumetrically expanding in size, removing the contaminant.


Because dry ice is non-abrasive and turns back into gas, you are left with a clean surface , no secondary waste and no damage to your equipment.
