Make it truly clean with dry ice blasting

Choose Airgas Dry Ice for the best in dry ice blasting

Safer and cleaner than other popular “blasting” methods, dry ice blasting is a highly effective method for removing unwanted materials from equipment and surfaces. But not all blasting machines and pellet providers are the same. That’s why Airgas Dry Ice has built the infrastructure to support your dry ice blasting product needs along with the strategic relationships to provide a complete dry ice blast cleaning offering.

Why clean with dry ice blasting?

Instead of using abrasive media to grind and potentially damage a surface, dry ice cleaning uses dry ice accelerated at supersonic speeds, creating “mini-explosions” that lift the undesirable item off the surface. Common applications:

  • Food and beverage equipment cleaning
  • Disaster remediation
  • Commercial cleaning
  • Historical conservation & preservation
