Print Industry FAQ

How Does Dry Ice Clean Printing Equipment? 

There are three primary factors that contribute to the dry ice cleaning process. The factors 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 (bacteria, dirt, paper) and the surface of the equipment.

EXPANSION – The expansion of the dry ice pellets. Dry ice pellets sublimate on impact, expanding in size and removing the contaminants.

How Can Dry Ice Blasting Be Used?

Dry ice blasting is the method of using carbon dioxide, in a pressurised form, to provide effective, sustainable and non-abrasive industrial cleaning.
