Dry ice: gentle and effective at the same time

The procedure

Fine dry ice granulate is blown onto the surface to be cleaned at high speed. Dirt (grease, release agents, coatings) become hard and brittle due to the cold (-79 degrees Celsius) and flake off.

The material

Dry ice is CO2 (carbon dioxide) in solidified form. CO2 is an odorless, non-toxic gas. In the beverage industry, for example, it is added to beer and mineral water in order to keep the fresh taste longer and to extend the shelf life. CO2 is also used in the food industry or in airplanes: Here it is used to cool meat and sausage products.

Production: Liquid carbon dioxide is fed from a tank into a special machine and relaxed. This creates dry ice. This medium at a temperature of -78.5 ° C is then pressed through a die - the result: dry ice pellets the size of a grain of rice (about 1.3 or 3.0 mm).

The advantages

  • The paintwork and the original underbody protection are retained (provided that the paintwork or underbody protection is not loose, for example if it is infiltrated by rust);

  • Electrical and fuel lines are not damaged and therefore do not have to be removed;

  • The ice-cold pellets sublimate completely after blasting, ie they completely dissolve in gas and go back into the atmosphere from which they were originally obtained. Only the removed dirt remains - this significantly reduces waste and saves time.
