CO2 Dry Ice cleaning is safe, non-toxic, non-flammable non-conductive, and approved for industrial use by the Department of Agriculture, the FDA and the Environmental Protection Agency. CO2 Dry Ice cleaning is a safe and environmentally responsible cleaning method during major outages or general maintenance schedules.
Labour costs, workers' compensation, and environmental requirements are only a few examples of the burden many equipment operators experience in cleaning machines. Carbonic International brings new technology to the Middle East that alleviates these problems.
You can dry ice cleaning straight onto an electric panel/motor, or engine and running machinery; even greasy kitchens and printing presses can be cleaned in a flash. Best of all there is no mess or water to clean up
The disposal of cleaning residues like grit (sand), glass or plastic beads, water or crushed walnut shells is becoming impossible due to strict landfill disposal requirements and hazardous waste controls.
Think about the removal of lead based paint from a one square foot area; this may require as much as ten pounds of sand to remove as little as two ounces of paint. This results in over ten pounds of lead contaminated waste requiring controlled disposal. CO2 pellets as the cleaning media eliminates waste disposal problems because it uses Zero Residue Technology (ZRT).
Carbonic International's method is non-abrasive, eco-friendly, has no contamination or health risk problems and waste disposal of toxic substances is non-existant. more
Carbonic International's solid CO2 pellets at -78°C are propelled through a high pressure self contained unit to clean the contaminated surface. more
Carbonic International FZCO's Dry Ice Cleaning can be used to remove oil, paint grease, asphalt, tar, decals, dirt, ink, resins, and adhesives to name a few. more
four stages of dry ice cleaning
- Tiny dry ice pellets at -78°C are propelled from a compact, self contained unit at supersonic speed through a dry ice cleaning gun using specially treated compressed air.
- The dry ice pellets hit the surface (to be removed or cleaned) creating a thermal shock wave.
- Upon impact they sublimate into gas breaking the surface-substrate bond.
- The resulting tension dislodges the surface material without damaging the substrate while the harmless CO2 gas from the sublimated dry ice is absorbed back into the atmosphere. There is no water, sand, grit, chemicals, solvents or other toxic secondary contaminants to discard with this eco-friendly technology.
