Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting is an excellent cleaning method for machinery or installations which cannot be allowed to come into contact with water. Unlike wet cleaning, the surface remains dry at all times, so damp or aggressive cleaning agents cannot cause damage. This technique also causes minimum disruption to normal operations. Peeters has the equipment and the knowhow you need for perfect dry cleaning!
The method uses dry ice. The dry ice blasting machine mixes this dry ice with a stream of air and projects it with great force against the surface being cleaned. The jet of compressed air accelerates the dry ice in the hose and the operator sprays it onto the surface using a spray gun and nozzle. Dry ice contains no water. It consists of pure carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide pellets (-79°C) change instantly from their solid form into an odorless and colorless gas.
Dry ice does not become liquid. Since it transforms directly from solid to gaseous form, it leaves no residue behind. This makes it particularly suitable for use in electrical environments. You do not need to dismantle machines and no blasting residue enters the machinery. There is a minimal amount of waste which consists only of the dirt itself.
