How Does Dry Ice Rust Removal Work?

Dry ice blasting alone will remove any loosely adhered rust, surface rust, oxidation, and salts (SP 6), but it will not remove the deeply adhered or pitted oxidation. Due to the non-abrasive characteristics of dry ice, it is not aggressive enough to create a profile or a white metal finish.

The Cold Jet new dry ice blasting + abrasive solution, the E-CO2 150, adds an abrasive to the dry ice blasting stream. The solution boosts its’ aggression and effectively removes deeply pitted rust and corrosion, while eliminating the issues with traditional methods of removal, such as excessive dust and waste. The solution achieves a white metal finish (SP 10 / SA 2.5 / NA 2).

The Cold Jet dry ice solutions can be utilised in a wide range of applications. Dry ice blasting rust removal is especially useful in remediation, and dry ice blasting corrosion and coatings removal may be required for a number of reasons.

Why Are the Benefits of Using Dry Ice?

Dry Ice Is Environmentally Sustainable

Using our technology for dry ice blasting for rust, dry ice is much more sustainable than other cleaning methods. Our equipment utilises materials that are inert, non-conductive and non-corrosive. There is no secondary toxic waste, moisture or residue produced when using our dry ice blasting methods. As such, our methods do not produce any harmful chemicals or hazardous waste. What’s more, the dry ice used for dry ice blasting for rust is made from reclaimed CO2 and does not add any additional CO2 into the atmosphere.

Dry Ice Blasting Rust Removal Is Safe

Dry ice manufacturing, production and blasting for cleaning is safe, as it relies purely on carbon dioxide. The process of dry ice blasting is non-toxic and non-flammable. In fact, dry ice is so safe that the use has been approved for commercial use around food by the EPA, FDA and USDA.

Dry Ice Blasting Saves Time

Dry ice blasting, particularly for rust removal, is incredibly time-efficient when compared to other cleaning methods. Dry ice blasting offers a significantly faster process that leads to minimised downtime and an increase in productivity.
