Cleaning with dry ice

Cleaning – blasting with dry ice is a modern ecological, non-abrasive method of industrial cleaning.

The cleaning process uses three basic factors: kinetic energy, thermal shock and sublimation. At the end of the process, only the removed dirt remains and no other secondary waste, as is the case with it. during sandblasting. This makes the dry ice cleaning method effective, gentle on the materials being cleaned, and at the same time environmentally friendly. With the help of dry ice, you can ecologically and gently remove deposits and dirt or surface rust without necessarily disassembling the cleaned equipment, thus saving time and considerable financial costs.

Dry ice is known to inhibit the growth of bacteria, the dry ice cleaning process stops the growth of mold, spores and reduces contamination by other biological substances. In addition, it is non-toxic, odorless and suitable for all surfaces – from metal, wood, concrete to fine wooden structures or glass and textiles.

The dry ice cleaning process uses a combination of three basic factors


Kinetic energy

The impact speed of dry ice pellets on a dirty surface can exceed the speed of sound.


Thermal shock

After a sharp cooling, the dirty layer becomes brittle and gradually detaches from the cleaned surface.



When the pellets come into contact with a polluted surface, they change their state, and with their explosion they perfectly remove the pollution.

What is dry ice?

Dry ice is a solid state of carbon dioxide CO₂ with a temperature of -79 °C.

Carbon dioxide is found in nature in gaseous form. It is non-toxic and odorless. It is used to carbonate drinks, giving them a fresh taste and extending their shelf life. Among other things, dry ice is also used in the food industry for cooling food or in the health sector.

The following accessories are required for dry ice cleaning:
