Advantages of Dry Ice Cleaning

Compared to other methods, what are the benefits of dry ice cleaning? This method is environmentally friendly and completely non-toxic, and it does not pose any risk of exposure to hazardous chemicals used for cleaning.

After cleaning, no waste is left behind, so we avoid additional processing costs. During cleaning, it is not necessary to disassemble the components of machines and equipment, which saves us a significant amount of valuable time. After cleaning, the equipment is completely dry and undamaged, as this method does not cause the effect of surface wear on the cleaning surface, thus extending the service life of the machine.

Dry Ice Blasting vs. Sand Blasting

Sandblasting allows for a certain degree of roughness and cleanliness of the cleaning surface. Unfortunately, its main drawback is the dispersion of dust, which can cause confusion and accelerate the wear of surrounding elements. Additionally, grinding can cause wear on the cleaning surface. Dry ice cleaning does not have these drawbacks, as dry ice has no abrasive properties and sublimes into the atmosphere itself.

High-Pressure Water Cleaning vs. Dry Ice Cleaning

Although high-pressure water cleaning is effective and is one of the most natural methods, its use is very limited. It is not recommended to clean under high-pressure water for steel surfaces (which may rust) or electrical equipment (which may cause electrical problems).

Solvent Cleaning vs. Dry Ice Cleaning

The biggest drawback of solvent cleaning methods is their negative impact on the environment and the danger to employees. Dissolved impurities require subsequent pouring and rinsing, and also require manual tools. The device being cleaned is usually stripped to protect its sensitive components from the effects of the solvent. An important drawback of solvent cleaning methods is the high cost of storage and disposal.

In the dry ice cleaning method, when in contact with the surface, CO2 particles change their physical state from solid to gas, and the only waste is the pollution itself, not the cleaning agent. This method does not use corrosive solvents, is non-toxic, and is safe for the environment, employees, and the production process.

Tool Cleaning vs. Dry Ice Cleaning

Using power tools and hand tools to clean is effective, but it is very time-consuming, and they are very invasive for the cleaned surface. Another difficulty may be the shape and size of the machine or other object being cleaned.

Dry ice cleaning technology is just as effective and does not use the cleaned surface, nor does it need to adapt to its shape. All of this combined with speed makes dry ice cleaning a more attractive method.

Drawbacks of Dry Ice Cleaning

Of course, like all others, this method is not without its drawbacks. The biggest drawback is the noise produced, which forces the use of protective headphones and irritates others nearby, although newer machines are quieter. When using dry ice cleaning, a large amount of carbon dioxide is released, which can be harmful, but working in a well-ventilated room eliminates this problem.

Overall Advantages of Dry Ice Cleaning Technology

Dry ice cleaning methods save money and time:

  • Dry ice allows machines or molds/injection molds to be cleaned on-site without having to disassemble them and transport them to the workshop.
  • Dry ice reaches hard-to-reach places, and the process characteristics ensure thorough cleaning of the cleaned surface.
  • Dry ice is non-abrasive, so it does not damage the cleaned surface.
  • In the dry ice cleaning method, when CO2 particles come into contact with the surface, their physical state changes from solid to gaseous, and the only waste is the pollution itself, not the cleaning agent.
  • Dry ice cleaning does not use corrosive solvents.
  • Dry ice particles are non-toxic and safe for the environment, employees, and the production process:
    • No secondary pollution
    • Safe for the environment
    • Safe for employees
    • Safe for the final product
    • Safe for machines

Comparison of Dry Ice Cleaning Technology with Other Cleaning Methods

Advantages of Dry Ice Cleaning

Compared to other methods, dry ice cleaning offers the following advantages:

  • Environmentally friendly and non-toxic: Dry ice is a naturally occurring substance that is completely safe for the environment and employees. It does not release any harmful fumes or chemicals, and it does not leave behind any residue.
  • Time-saving and efficient: Dry ice cleaning can be done quickly and easily, without the need to disassemble or move equipment. It is also effective at removing a wide range of contaminants, including dirt, grease, oil, and paint.
  • Safe for delicate surfaces: Dry ice is non-abrasive, so it is safe to use
