Innovative & Safe Dry Ice Blaster for In-Place Cleaning


Kärcher Industrial Products has introduced a dry ice blaster - a highly effective and mess-free method for in-place cleaning that eliminates the need to disassemble or move machinery before it is cleaned.

The new IB 15/80 Dry Ice Blaster uses compressed air to propel tiny dry ice pellets at supersonic speeds so they flash freeze and then lift grime, paint, rust, reins, mold, asphalt and other contaminants from off a broad range of surfaces. Moreover, the pellets quickly dissipate into the air so there is no messy wastewater, solvents, sand or other media to dispose of, only the soiled contaminant that is easily swept up or vacuumed.

Other cleaning media, such as sand or glass beads, are often too abrasive etching or pitting the surface. Dry ice can be regulated so it is non-abrasive, using micro-thermal shock (the dry ice temperature is -78°C to lift the contaminant off the surface. Consequently, it is safe to use on virtually any surface, from plastic and rubber to all metals and even wood.

Dry ice blasting is growing in popularity because it completely eliminates the need to disassemble or move machinery before it is cleaned. The labor savings are significant and dry ice blasting cleans in crevices that cannot be reached by hand or via other cleaning methods.

Dry ice blasting is extremely environmentally friendly. The CO2 pellets are non-toxic and non-hazardous making them safe for the environment, equipment, the workplace and, especially, employees. It is also safe to use in a kitchen, as there is no captured air or gas introduced into the process to create a pathogenic risk.
