Cryogenic dry-ice blasting
As a health and environment focused business; over the past 37 years we have sought to use the most effective methods to restore buildings with the least impact on our environment. In recent years new innovative technologies have helped us to achieve our goals in minimising our use of harmful chemicals. The introduction of Dry Ice Cryo-Blasting technology in our business has revolutionised our ability to effectively remove soot deposits from wood, stone, concrete and brick surfaces. The system is not only 100% safe but completely eliminates the use of chemicals or the use of our most precious resource - water ! Cryo-Blasting helps us decontaminate and restore structures from harmful carcinogens, whilst still achieving our goal of the long term sustainability of our planet.
How It Works
Dry-ice blasting involves propelling 3mm CO² pellets at extremely high speeds onto contaminated surfaces.
Upon impact, the pellets sublimate almost immediately; this sublimation process leaves no residue to clean up or damaging water byproducts, so it can be used directly on all forms of electrical equipment in commercial production and medical facilities.
The pellets are relatively soft and much less dense than other media such as bicarbonate of soda or sand; the nonabrasive nature of dry-ice and the absence of secondary waste from the cleaning process makes it perfect for conservation and heritage renovation projects.
The unique properties of dry-ice make it an ideal cleaning solution for disaster restoration including mould remediation, smoke, fire, and water damage
