Dry Ice Blasting Project Results




Gulf Coast Industrial Plant - On-site,



Project Cost:



Our Dry Ice blasting remote services were able to increase efficiency by 30 percent. Our mobile compressor units were able to access the client site reducing downtime and placing machinery back in service quickly saving valuable time. 

Project Description:

Dry Ice blasting services use dry ice pellets as an abrasive medium to remove build-up and debris without using water run-off that must be environmentally contained. This is an effective and cost reducing procedure for industrial plant machinery.

Dry Ice Blasting Cleaning Services for Heat Exchangers, Boilers, Tanks, Reactors and Piping Clean-Co System's Dry Ice Blasting (or CO2 blasting) is a fast, easy and cost-effective cleaning method that uses high-velocity dry ice (or solid CO2) pellets to clean surfaces without damaging equipment or creating new waste streams.

Because of the temperature difference between the dry ice particles (-109°Fahrenheit / -78.3°Centigrade) and the surface being treated, thermal shock occurs during the dry ice blasting process. This breaks down the bond between the substrate and the contaminant to be removed from it. The dry ice vaporizes on impact, so no secondary waste stream is created.

A number of industries worldwide have discovered the advantages of this precision cleaning process. Applications range from heavy slag removal to delicate semiconductor and circuit board cleaning.

Dry ice blasting lets you:

  • Remove adhesives, lubricants, paints, and other substances from products and equipment without damaging the substrate
  • Clean assembled components and equipment, eliminating teardown/rebuild time
  • Reduce hazardous waste streams by replacing chemical solvents
  • Improve maintenance of sensors and computer components, tooling, hot ovens, conveyor rollers, spray booths, and more...

Manage downtime by cleaning your equipment in place. Dry Ice Blasting is a dry, nonabrasive, nonconductive cleaning process that leaves no residual media to clean up.
