Dry ice blasting also is well known as dry ice cleaning, which is so popular now in many fields, especially in many manufacturing departments. The raw materials of dry ice blasting machine are mainly the dry ice pellets which can be made by the dry ice pelletizer with different diameters. This new cleaning method is quickly expanding around the world. The dry ice blasting machine uses small dry ice pellets and shoots them out of a jet nozzle with compressed air to clean the surface of the objects.

How dose the dry ice blasting machine work?
When the dry ice pellets are jetted to the surface of the objects, the dry ice pellets will become gas quickly, which has 800 times greater volume and spreads out underneath the material which speeds up its removal. Paint, oil, grease, asphalt, tar, decals, soot, dirt, ink, resins, jet exhaust tars, and adhesives are some of the materials removed by this procedure. When using the dry ice blasting machine, only the removed material must be disposed of, as the dry ice sublimes into the atmosphere.
The great advantages of the dry ice blasting/dry ice cleaning
1.Saving money with the dry ice machine
Traditional cleaning methods include water spray cleaning, sandblast cleaning, steam cleaning, and high-pressure cleaning. Compared to these cleaning methods, dry ice blasting can greatly reduce cleaning costs. Because the main raw material of dry ice is carbon dioxide gas, it is very convenient to use in life, so its cost is very low. In terms of electricity consumption, the only power-consuming equipment required for dry ice blasting is air compressors. Dry ice cleaning is the direct cleaning of oil, dust and impurities on the equipment, without any residues of chemicals and other substances, greatly saving the cost of cleaning.
2.Extend the service life of your dry ice equipment
The main raw material for dry ice blaster is dry ice pellets. Dry ice is expressed in the form of solid particles at low temperature, which is extremely volatile at normal temperature, and the volatilization of dry ice is different from the volatilization of other articles. The evaporation of dry ice is directly volatilized into carbon dioxide gas by solid particles. In this process, the dry ice volatilization will not produce any moisture, so it will not cause any damage to the machine during the dry ice cleaning process, effectively extending the service life of the machine.
3.No downtime required when dry ice cleaning
The process of dry ice cleaning is very simple, no need to dismantle the machine, avoiding the need for shelter, cooling, disassembly, and drainage as in traditional cleaning methods. Dry ice blasting can significantly reduce the time required for cleaning compared to traditional cleaning methods.
