With the advancements in technology and mass production, it's a shame to
think there are still cleaning methods that hurt not help the environment,
adding thousands of tons of toxic secondary waste to our landlls each year.
While traditional industrial cleaning methods can result in the disposal and
removal of "secondary waste", consisting of solvents, sand, or other meansthe
cleaning agent itself becomes a secondary contaminant that needs to be
disposed of immediately.
Dry Ice Blasting eliminates the "secondary waste" by simply disappearing, eliminating the costs or concerns of more traditional methods.
The Dry Ice Blast Cleaning uses Dry Ice Pellets created
through a process beginning with Liquid Carbon Dioxide
(CO2). The Dry Ice is obtained as a byproduct of other
industrial processes made from reclaimed CO2. It does not
produce CO2 or add CO2 to the atmosphere and therefore
does not contribute to the greenhouse eect.
Upon impact, the dry ice creates a micro-thermal shock which breaks the bond between the coating of grime and the substrate. The high pressure air stream removes the dirt from the surface, while the Dry Ice Pellets vaporize, leaving only the removed debris to be cleaned, creating absolutely no secondary waste.
Dry Ice Blasting has been approved by the EPA, FDA and the USDA.
