Dry Ice Blast Cleaning, which is also known as CO2 Blasting and sometimes Cryogenic Cleaning, offers a safe, effective and fast way to complete maintenance of industrial equipment and machinery. We have completed dry ice blasting projects for many industrial applications including printing presses, paper mill equipment, heat treatment furnaces, insulation manufacturing equipment, filtration manufacturing machines and industrial ovens.
The dry ice blasting process cleans even in tight angles, around bolts, wiring and plumbing components without damaging their surface integrity. Most importantly, dry ice blasting offers an environmentally safe cleaning method that is EPA, USDA and FDA approved. Dry ice blast cleaning industrial equipment has been our specialty since starting this service. Our green cleaning service creates no secondary waste, so all that needs to be cleaned up after ice blasting is the particulate removed from the substrate being cleaned. Below are pictures of two dry ice blast cleaning projects we completed involving industrial machinery.
Objective: Dry ice blast clean vacuum furnace to remove contaminants and paint. The customer needed the furnace cleaned before painting on a new coating of surface protectant.

Objective: Dry ice blast clean paper mill machines including large rollers of buildup. The customer needed the rollers to be cleaned of the buildup and leave a smooth surface after dry ice blasting.

Buildup on printing equipment can impede optimum operating efficiency. Ink and grease deposits disturb printing press alignment, block vent slots and slow print speed. Nitrofreeze® Dry Ice Blast Cleaning removes problematic buildup to improve the performance of printing equipment.
Dry Ice Blast Cleaning rids printing equipment of ink and grease buildup more efficiently than traditional cleaning methods. Hand-scraping and wiping with chemical solvents are more labor intensive than dry ice blasting, which can clean printing equipment up to 80% faster. Additionally, dry ice blasting can clean areas around print equipment, hard to reach places and sensitive electrical components difficult for hand cleaning. Grippers, rollers, drums, ink trays, glue pots, side walls and feeders can all be cleaned using dry ice blast cleaning while presses are online. After hitting the surface to be cleaned, dry ice sublimates harmlessly into the atmosphere contributing no secondary waste. Dry ice blasting is an EPA, USDA and FDA approved cleaning process.
Objective: Dry ice blast printing presses in a label manufacturing facility. The customer required that the work stations be cleaned of ink and grease buildup.
