Dry Ice Blasting Wood & Engineered Wood
Dry ice blasting wood services work with accelerated dry ice pellets. Dry ice pellets are blasted at the affected areas of engineered wood, where the solution is sublimating on impact; resulting in an effective clean, with no residue or waste produced. The low temperature and powerful impact of dry ice mean that all contaminants are lifted from the engineered wood surface, without further damaging any materials. The end result of dry ice blasting is the composite woods being cleaner than ever before.
Using our technology for dry ice blasting for engineered wood, 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.
BENEFITS OF DRY ICE BLASTING WOOD
The benefits of dry ice blasting for engineered wood are plentiful. Dry ice blasting wood services eliminates the manual cleaning of engineered wood presses, dryers and vents, while eliminating employee exposure to unsafe conditions. Dry ice cleaning is a safer and more effective cleaning solution for composite wood presses and ancillary equipment, – there is no disassembly of equipment required, and dry ice blasting eliminates the need for harsh chemicals and laborious cleaning practices.
The typical cleaning process for tooling for engineered wood is time-consuming, labour intensive and requires employees to work within close proximity to machines, hot residue and dust. Dry ice blasting for wood and engineered provides a no-contact cleaning solution that is faster, safer and more effective. Cold Jet are pleased to present a sustainable, resourceful and efficient solution for engineered wood composites. Other benefits include:
→ Decrease cleaning time and labour costs
→ Clean in-place
→ Increase productivity and reduce downtime
→ Non-conductive cleaning process
→ Employee safety
→ Environmentally responsible
→ Improve part quality and reduce scrap
→ No secondary waste stream

Its always a pleasure to work with Camilo and the team at Cold Jet. Excellent customer service!!!!
We recently switched to ColdJet from another supplier for our Dry Ice requirements, Cold jet have been excellent to deal with, great customer service, on time delivery and excellent quality, particularly the quality of their Dry ice storage containers is top notch resulting in a lot less wastage as compared to our previous supplier.
After purchasing a Cold Jet blasting machine a number of years ago we have had great success with improving the cleanliness of our large food manufacturing site. The effectiveness of dry ice cleaning is amazing, as are the results. The team at Cold Jet are great to deal with and we’ve had the pleasure of using their services and dry ice for the past 3 years. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking at using dry ice cleaning.
As a company, Spec Services has worked closely with Cold Jet on two projects to date. I have found the CJ team both helpful and professional in their approach and the results achieved were outstanding. Moving forward, we will use this methodology on a greater scale in 2020.
Been using Cold Jet as our preferred supplier of dry ice supplies/equipment for over 2 years now. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough for their level of professionalism, client relations and proactive attitude across the board. Will be using Cold Jet for all our dry ice requirements for the foreseeable future!!

As such, we’ve put together a ‘frequently asked questions’ section to answer all common questions to do with dry ice blasting wood and engineered wood services.
How Does Dry Ice Clean Engineered Wood?
There are three primary components that contribute to the dry ice blasting wood process. The components include Pellet Kinetic Energy, the Thermal Shock Effect, and the Thermal-Kinetic Effect. In order to better understand the cleaning practice, the process can be broken down into three stages – Impact, Cold, Expansion (ICE).
IMPACT – The impact of pellets creates a kinetic energy effect. The soft dry ice accelerated by compressed air at supersonic speeds.
COLD – The cold temperature of dry ice creates a thermal effect. The low temperature of dry ice (-78.9°C /-109°F) causes the bond to break between the contaminant and the engineered wood surface.
EXPANSION – The expansion of the dry ice pellets. Dry ice pellets sublimate on impact, expanding in size and removing the contaminants.
Why Is Dry Ice Better Than Other Cleaning Methods?
Dry Ice Blasting for Wood 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 for cleaning engineered wood 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. With a qualified professional, dry ice blasting for remediation is one of the safest cleaning options.
Dry Ice Eliminates Pollutive Secondary Waste
When the dry ice impacts the surface being cleaned, it sublimates – turning directly from a solid to a gas—and thus does not produce secondary waste. Similar cleaning techniques leave behind a residue that must be cleaned up afterwards, along with the offending contaminant. This media can become hazardous and create downstream contamination and harm the surrounding area and installations. Say goodbye to secondary wastes with dry ice blasting for engineered wood tools and equipment.
Dry Ice Blasting Saves Time
Dry ice blasting, particularly for equipment and wood cleaning, 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. A reduction in labour and the lengthy processes that typically come with cleaning mean that dry ice blasting wood services are incredibly time saving and efficient.
What Else Can Dry Ice Be Used For?
In the case of dry ice blasting for wood, the technique is extremely effective for cleaning composite wood materials. Due to the plethora of benefits of using dry ice blasting, the practice can also be used for a wide range of applications, including:
- Coating & Corrosion Removal
- Composite Tool Cleaning
- Core Box Cleaning
- Equipment Cleaning
- Historical Restoration
- Adhesive removal
- Part Finishing
- Surface preparation
- Surface Preparation
- Rust Removal
- Weld Line Cleaning
- Dry Ice Manufacturing for Airline Catering
- Dry Ice Cooling in Food Processing
Does Dry Ice Blasting Leave A Residue?
No – dry ice blasting does not leave residue or waste when cleaning wood composites. Dry ice sublimates upon impact with the surface being cleaned, which results in no secondary waste, no residue and no introduction of moisture. This eliminates extra clean-up, disposal of secondary waste streams and additional cleaning preparation, such as masking delicate sensors or wrapping electronic components before cleaning. This significantly reduces the duration of cleaning projects and the resulting shutdowns.
