Dry ice blast cleaning is a relatively new cleaning process using solid CO2 pellets (known as dry ice). Developed by the aircraft industry to clean everything from electrical components to petroleum waste, blast cleaning uses compressed air to propel dry ice particles that create an impact flushing action.Read More…
At Advanced Dry Ice Cleaning Solutions we understand and appreciate the value of you the customer and your business. Every step is taken to ensure that you get the best quality of work. It our mission to provide you with reliable, quality commercial and industrial dry ice blasting and cleaning.
Dry Ice Blasting is used in a variety of general maintenance applications. Equipment, floors and walls can be cleaned in preparation for service work, prior to painting, or to reduce operating temperatures and to eliminate fire hazards. It’s also a fast, safe method used for grout cleaning between tiles in office buildings and public washrooms.Read More....

Dry ice cleaning (also known as dry ice blasting, dry ice blast cleaning, and dry ice dusting) is similar to sand blasting, plastic bead blasting, or soda blasting where a medium is accelerated in a pressurized air stream to impact a surface to be cleaned or prepared. But that's where the similarity ends. Instead of using hard abrasive media to grind on a surface (and damage it), dry ice cleaning uses soft dry ice, accelerated to supersonic speeds, to lift the undesirable contaminant off the underlying substrate.
Dry ice cleaning uses compressed air to accelerate frozen carbon dioxide (CO2) "dry ice" pellets to a high velocity. A compressed air supply of 80 PSI/50 scfm can be used in this process. Dry ice pellets can be made on-site or supplied. Pellets are made from food grade carbon dioxide that has been specifically approved by the FDA, the EPA and the USDA. Carbon dioxide (CO2)is a non-poisonous, liquified gas, which is both inexpensive and easily stored at work sites.
This is a dry process - electrical parts and generators can be immediately put back into service used without waiting to dry. Radioactive contaminate removal doesn't require large storage containers for contaminated water. Mildew and mold removal are far more complete with less chance of regeneration because of water vapor or moisture. Dry ice blasting removes more algae, sea slime, and mussels on boat hulls, than water blasting, which allows the organic matter to reattach sooner.
