Dry Ice Blasting Services Michigan

Michigan Dry Ice Blasting Experts

Strength H2O Industrial Solutions is an industry leader and specializes in dry ice blasting cleaning services.  Unlike pressure washing, high pressure hydro blasting, and chemical cleaning, ice blasting uses no toxic solvent and is nonabrasive. Also, with other cleaning methods, the cleaning agent becomes a contaminant and must be disposed of as a toxic waste.

 

Ice Blasting is successful in removing coatings, sealants, adhesives, grease, paint, soot and more. It is the preferred method to clean in and around electrical components. In addition, it can be used inside a business and the business doesn't have to close.

Dry Ice Blasting Michigan Process

The Michigan dry ice blasting process begins (co2) particles that are propelled to supersonic speed impacting and cleaning the surface. These particles are accelerated by utilizing compressed air produce by an industrial air compressor. The Dry Ice Blasting process can be broken down into 3 basic steps, those steps are: 

 

Step 1 – Transfer of Energy
Dry ice blasting Michigan is dry ice pellets being propelled out of the blasting gun at supersonic speed and impact the surface they are cleaning. Without causing abrasion, the energy transfer knocks off the contaminant. In addition, the force of this impact is the force of this impact is the principal method of cleaning.

 

Step 2 – Tiny Thermal Shock
With the cold temperatures produced during by the dry ice pellets hitting the contaminant surface it creates a tiny thermal shock between the surface contaminant and the substrate. Snapping and blistering of the contaminant occurs advancing the eradication process.

 

Step #3 – Gas Pressure

The final step of dry ice blasting Michigan is the dry ice pellet exploding on impact and warming and converting to nonhazardous CO2 gas. In addition, the gas expands quickly beneath the contaminant surface. Most importantly, the dry ice evaporates only leaving behind the contaminant.

Why Clean With Dry Ice Blasting?

As a replacement of using abrasive media to grind and potentially damage a surface, ice blasting uses dry ice accelerated at high speeds, that lifts the undesirable item off the surface. Benefits of using:

  • Only thing left to clean up afterwards is what’s been removed from the surface.
  • Safe For Indoors & Tight Spaces
  • Non-toxic & Cost-Effective 

 

Decreased Downtime through Cleaning In-Place

Typical cleaning procedures require that equipment be disassembled and moved to an assigned area for proper cleaning. That is not the case with dry ice blasting. Equipment can be cleaned in-place and hot in most situations. Because of that, many time-consuming, labor-intensive steps which were required with other methods such as sand blasting can be eliminated including Disassembly, Reassembly, Cool Down, and even transportation. 

 

Faster Cleaning Process

With dry ice blast cleaning Michigan, equipment runs more efficiently and potential leaks are revealed possibly preventing major system failures.

 

Equipment Damage Elimination

Michigan Dry ice blasting typically eliminates equipment damage. Cleaning methods such as sandblasting leave an aggressive and abrasive effect on the surface. They can actually remove part of the surface, changing the surface structure considerably. Dry ice is non-abrasive to surfaces and does not change a surface’s structure. It lifts the contaminants away. 

 

Reduction or Elimination of Cleaner Solutions

Dry ice blasting utilizes no solvents, but instead uses nonhazardous CO2 pellets. Making it simple to comply with environmental regulations or to improve worker safety. There are no issues pertaining to toxicity with CO2 blasting.

 

Waste Disposal Reduction

With most all other cleaning methods, the cleaning agent becomes a secondary contaminant and must be disposed of with the primary contaminant.  However, with dry ice blast cleaning because the CO2 pellet vaporizes, the only waste created is the contaminant itself.  

 

Increased Safety

Dry ice blasting pellets are non-toxic, non-hazardous creating advantages to the environment, your employees, and production facility.

Michigan Dry Ice Blasting Services for Production Facilities

Dry Ice Blasting is particularly effective at cleaning industrial and production equipment. Unlike other types of media blasting, Dry Ice Blasting generates no additional waste or secondary contamination. Upon contact with the surface to be cleaned, the dry ice pellets transform directly from a solid to a gas (no liquid phase) in a process known as sublimation, leaving no residue behind. This also makes it ideal for situations where moisture is not an option. It is nonabrasive, nonconductive, and nonflammable. This method is especially effective at reaching hard to reach places reducing the need for disassembly of the equipment.

Faster And Better Clean

Ensure the machinery within your production facility is always functioning properly by immediately removing dirt, soot, grease, or oil buildup. This will also extend the life of your machine’s electric motors and reduce the chance you’ll need to replace the machine itself. Our technicians have over 30 years of experience performing dry ice blasting services for production facilities in the Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana area.

Choosing Dry Ice Blasting Services Michigan

Our Michigan dry ice blasting for production facilities reduces the downtime your company must take to perform a full clean or remediation. If you were to manually clean everything within your facility, you’ll have to shut down your production for at least one week. This approach will only make you lose money and take up valuable time. Dry ice blasting is a proven method that’s quick, safe, and economical. 

Important Benefits

  • Clean in-place; no cool-down required
  • Eliminate wear and tear
  • Environmentally responsible
  • No secondary waste
  • Non-abrasive process
  • Reduce cleaning downtime

Michigan Dry Ice Blasting Applications

Below are the applications that we often work with when performing our Michigan dry ice blasting for production facilities. There are several other applications that we have worked with as well. 

  • Conveyor Belts, Chains, and Rollers
  • Cooling Fans and Chiller Components
  • Motors / Electrical Boxes
  • Pipes, Hoses, and Overhead Ducting
  • Paint Ovens 
  • So Many More...

Ice Blasting Is A Perfect Non-Toxic Solution

Adhesives

Adhesives are easily removed in comparison to other cleaning methods as the lowered temperature serves to weaken the adhesive bond. Abrasive methods most often produce heat and can therefore fail with some adhesive removal.

Fire Remediation

Dry Ice blasting is highly effective in removing toxic residues, soot, and associated smells after a fire. Independent blasters often work with major insurance companies over a large geographic area to quickly clean fire and smoke damaged locations.

Food Manufacturing & Processing Equipment 

Build up of surface contaminants such as oils, grease, proteins, packaging glue and more, that prevents equipment from operating at peak efficiency and in a sanitary and compliant condition. Unfortunately, traditional manual cleaning methods are time-consuming, not fully effective, require disassembly, and often involve significant amounts of water, chemicals, and resulting waste water costs. 

 

Ice blast cleaning can be effectively used on food contact surfaces, adjoining equipment, support equipment (such as forklifts), and on reducing built-up dirt and loose paint chips in your facility itself. It is effective in confined spaces, such as storage bins, silos, tanks, and other hard to reach areas that must be kept clean and dry.


Cleaning of the surface of products will remove mold, mildew and other fungi, as well as stopping odors at the source by eliminating unwanted organisms. Dry Ice cleaning is 100% ecologically safe, USDA rated, biodegradable and harmless to humans, animals and marine life.

Dry Ice Blasting Cleaning Applications

Many business owners have considered using this process for cleaning purposes, but are concerned with the effect the thermal shock will have on the parent metal. Also, many studies have shown that the temperature decrease occurs on the surface only, so there is no chance of thermal stress occurring in the surface being cleaned.  Common applications are:

  • Automotive
  • Contract Cleaning
  • Food & Beverage
  • Plastics & Composites
  • Adhesive Removal
  • General Equipment Cleaning
  • Mold Cleaning
  • Surface Preparation
  • Mold Redemption
