Glacier Blast Inc. gives industrial cleaning by dry ice blasting to the state of Wisconsin.

What is dry ice blasting?

Dry ice blasting is the use of strong CO2 (carbon dioxide) pellets accelerated by compressed air to clean or strip industrial gear, machinery, tanks, facilities and so on. We discovered site preview External link mark by browsing Google Books. of unwanted contaminates. Dry ice pellets effect the surface and expand immediately into a gaseous state hundreds of occasions greater than their original strong volume, generating tiny explosions on the surface getting cleaned. The tiny explosions, velocity and effect of the dry ice pellets (kinetic energy) and thermal shock (dry ice is -109 F) are the forces that take away the unwanted contaminates.

What are the disadvantages of standard industrial cleaning strategies?

Cleaning chemical substances and solutions pose environmental hazards to employees and the environment. When utilized they leave behind a secondary waste stream, rags, absorbent pads, utilised solution and/or chemical compounds and so on., which in many cases increases the volume of hazardous waste that is subject to expensive disposal fees and transportation charges. If the chemical compounds and/or options are not correctly cleaned up they can result in undesirable corrosion and rot, rising harm and lengthy term upkeep fees.

Higher pressure water blasting leaves behind a secondary waste stream which in a lot of cases increases the volume of hazardous waste that is subject to costly disposal fees and transportation costs. Water gets left in electrical elements, gear and machinery. If the water is not effectively removed it will trigger unwanted corrosion and rot, increasing damage and lengthy term maintenance fees.

Soda blasting leaves behind a secondary waste stream which in a lot of instances increases the volume of hazardous waste that is subject to expensive disposal fees and transportation costs. It leaves water and soda behind, if not appropriately removed will result in undesirable corrosion and rot, increasing damage and extended term upkeep expenses.

Sand blasting leaves behind a secondary waste stream which in several cases increases the volume of hazardous waste that is subject to expensive disposal fees and transportation costs. It leaves behind an abrasive blast media which if not cleaned up effectively continues to lead to damage in electrical elements, gears, bearings and so forth. It continues to fall from horizontal surfaces, cracks and beams years right after the job is done, growing cleanup, harm and lengthy term maintenance expenses.

What are the benefits of industrial cleaning by dry ice blasting?

Dry ice blasting is the ultimate industrial cleaning approach, it leaves no secondary waste stream, no abrasive blast media, no water, no corrosive cleaning options or chemicals to get into essential regions. Dry ice blasting has no unfavorable extended term impact on upkeep. Dry ice blasting minimizes disposal costs and transportation fees.

Dry ice blasting is secure and environmentally friendly. Dry ice passes from a solid state to a gaseous state, it has no liquid state. Dry ice is pure CO2 in its strong state, it is in a gaseous state in the air about us. When we inhale our bodies use the oxygen and we exhale CO2. Green plants take CO2 from the air and give off oxygen.

Dry ice blasting is non-toxic, non-conductive, non-corrosive and there is no employee exposure to hazardous cleaning chemicals or options. Dry ice blasting sterilizes as it cleans, dry ice is -109 F, the extreme temperature kills germs and bacteria. Dry ice blasting meets the guidelines of the USDA, EPA, and the CarpetFirst
