Removal of dirt, rubber, silicone and paints, release agents from injection molds and production lines, product residues
cleaning of buses, trains, airplanes
In the paper industry, glue, lime, dust and pulp are deposited in the equipment. Machine breakdowns and quality losses are the result. Plants cleaned with dry ice are faster, cleaner, and therefore more quickly ready for use again.

Principle of dry ice blasting
1) Without disassembling the objects to be cleaned, the surface is freed from various contaminants, such as adhesives, grease, incrustations, oil, graffiti, paint, varnish + rust conditional, ink, paper residues, resin, soot, chewing gum, dirt, tar, wax, binders, bitumen, silicone, release agents, rubber, burns and many more.

2) Dry ice pellets between 1.5 mm and 3 mm are accelerated to the speed of sound with compressed air. The dry ice pellets lead to sudden super cooling of the dirt layer, causing it to become brittle and flake off.
Dry ice pellets sublimate (transition from solid to gaseous state) abruptly upon impact, thus completely removing the dirt layer from the surface.
3) The material is completely cleaned by dry ice and remains undamaged. The remaining dirt can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner. The biggest advantage of dry ice cleaning is the fact that no blasting media residue is produced during blasting, as is the case with other punishing methods, e.g. sand or water.
Dry ice becomes gaseous and dissolves. Dry ice pellets are non-toxic, non-flammable, it is chemically inert, electrically non-conductive and therefore does not leave moisture.
How dry ice blasting works
Cleaning with dry ice
- Dry; Dry ice is electrically non-conductive and leaves no moisture.
- Residue-free; dry ice dissolves completely into CO₂ gas in the room.
- Gentle on surfaces; dry ice cleans with low/no abrasiveness.
- Environmentally neutral; Cleaning without toxic, environmentally harmful chemicals.
Clean better and faster with dry ice
- Cleaning without interruption of work
- Cleaning time is significantly reduced
- Gentle cleaning of surfaces
- No disposal costs of chemicals and waste water
Compared to sand, soda, glass beads or water pressure blasting, dry ice blasting is a very gentle cleaning method for sensitive surfaces because dry ice sublimates the dirt at -79 °C and cleans at high particle velocity.
In addition, dry ice blasting equipment from ecoTES cleans very cleanly by optimally dosing compressed air and dry ice quantity, individually to the desired cleaning result.
Dry ice blasting cleans gently and completely without interrupting work.
How dry ice cleaning works
Dry ice blasting equipment from ecoTES removes dirt using dry ice pellets and compressed air.
The combination of ice-cold pellets and highly accelerated pellets ensure that surfaces are comprehensively cleaned of dirt particles.
Upon impact with the surface, dry ice completely sublimates to CO₂ gas and dissolves in the room completely, leaving no residue.
Dry ice blasting is a gentle cleaning method without the use of water or chemicals.
Dry ice pellets up to 3 mm in size with a temperature of -79 °C are used as blasting media.
Dry ice pellets are non-toxic, non-flammable, chemically inert, electrically non-conductive and leave no moisture.
Dry ice blasting 100 % Innovative – Climate neutral cleaning
Environmentally neutral cleaning
Without toxic substances
Dry ice blasting does not use harmful or toxic chemicals.
Employees are not exposed to hazards from the use of hazardous or harmful substances.
Without water, without waste water
Dry ice cleans without the use of water, so there is no wastewater pollution or corrosion.
Dry ice is non-flammable and non-conductive.
No additional waste
Blasting methods such as sand, soda, glass beads or water pressure blasting produce additional waste, which must be disposed of in an elaborate, environmentally friendly and cost-intensive manner.
These problems are eliminated when cleaning with dry ice because no abrasive is left behind.
Only the resulting dirt has to be disposed of.
Dry ice production
CO₂ accumulates from processing operations in industry.
Solid dry pellets are produced from gaseous CO₂ using hydraulic dry ice pelletizers.
Often, CO₂ is no longer produced separately, but is generated by recovery plants. CO₂ extraction by burning fossil fuels has completely disappeared.
