Dry ice cleaning is a modern method of surface cleaning, which, in some cases, gives additional effect of desinsection and disinfection. The carbon dioxide (СО2) also called the artificial ice is the reactant for such kind of cleaning.
«Dry ice» is the solid phase of carbon dioxide (CO2). It is a non-toxic and non-flammable substance without smell, flavor or color. Dry ice does not conduct electricity. It is low temperature (-79 °C) and changes from solid to gas state when heated. These characteristics give an advantage to this unique way of surface cleaning with compressed air and dry ice granules. The method of cleaning with dry ice is also called cryogenic blasting.
Dry ice cleaning is widely used in the food industry, electric-power industry as well as building, polygraphic and pharmaceutical industries.
In the food industry, dry ice processing is particularly relevant for cleaning: installations for processing fats, freezing and high-temperature chambers, equipment for the production of bread and flour products, chocolate molds, filling and mixing equipment, drying machines, conveyor belts etc.
For cryogenic blasting our Company uses high-quality Belgian equipment called Cryonomic . Cryonomic is the leader in the field of cryogenic technologies.
