The CO2 pellets are non-toxic, sublimate on impact (they return to their natural gaseous state in the atmosphere), and do not require disposal. The cleaning action takes place by “impact waste removal”; with the impact, the pellets penetrate the surface below the slag to be removed, shatter and create a high-speed flow of dry ice particles which, exploding at the point of impact, create a flow that lifts the contaminant from the piece removing it from the inside towards outside.
EFFECTS OF THE PROCESS
Mechanical dry ice pellets with a diameter of 1.5-3 mm are thrown at high speed on the surface to be cleaned.
There is no damage to the substrate, as there is no cutting or abrasion action. Since CO2 (dry ice) sublimates, the only residue is the removed debris.
Thermal the impact of the pellets on the surface causes thermal shock at -78° makes the encrustation friable and separates it from the surface to be cleaned so that it is easily removable.
Kinetic When dry ice hits the surface to be cleaned, it changes from a solid to a gaseous state: this causes an expansion of the volume of carbon dioxide by about 700 times and consequently an explosion of encrustations from the surface to be cleaned.
Fungistatic In the transition from solid to gaseous state, carbon dioxide exerts a bacteriostatic and fungistatic action, slowing down the proliferation of microbiological flora and ensuring optimal conditions also from an hygienic point of view.
Sublimation A further and important feature of dry ice is its ability to leave no residual moisture on the products it has been in contact with. In fact, by sublimating, it produces an atmosphere saturated with carbon dioxide which, being a dry gas, tends to reduce the moisture content in the environment without leaving any trace of water on the treated surfaces. For this reason cryogenic cleaning is recommended both in the food sector and in the cleaning of electrical systems.
ICE BLAST has no abrasive effects and therefore it is extremely delicate with surfaces
