Dry ice blasting is our newest capability, and we have multiple machines that allow us to quickly and efficiently complete any size job, from just a few parts to a large scale project.

The primary benefit of dry ice is the lack of any dust generated by the blast media, unlike sand or soda blasting, dry ice converts to its carbon dioxide gas form upon impact, so the only debris created is the material being removed during blasting.

What makes Dry Ice Blasting unique?

Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide, which at -109 F, cleans with three types of action: First is the impact of the ice pellets on the surface being cleaned, usually at between 60-110 psi, but can be at a lower psi or up to 200+ psi. Secondly, upon impact the frozen gas converts, or sublimates, into a gas, releasing energy that creates an explosive effect that is a force multiplier in generating cleaning action. Finally, the extreme cold striking a warmer surface, causes a thermal shock effect shrinking the surface being cleaned and loosening the debris from the underlying substrate.

Case Studies

Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting

Safe, non-toxic and meets EDA, FDA, and USDA guidelines.

FDA Food Grade Certified and upon contact can kill most bacteria, mold, mildew and fungus

No dust from the blast media.

Small, compact machinery footprint for mobile access to enclosed areas.

Safe around electrical panels, controls and most electronics.

Minimizes masking needs prior to blasting.

Speeds up surface prep since minimal prep prior to coating needed due to absence of blast dust.

Awesome use of the leftover dry ice to create fog effects and other nifty science experiment use.

Uses of Dry Ice Blasting


Cleaning industrial machinery without removing it from the plant or serious disruption is ongoing operations


Cleaning kitchen equipment in industrial and commercial food operations, both on site and at our plant


Degreasing surfaces


Surface cleaning prior to painting without water damage in commercial and industrial buildings.


Can remove many types of paint at high psi, useful for items that are large and not easily moved or sandblasted.


Brick and block cleaning, historical renovation, graffiti removal and paint preparation.
