CO2 Dry Ice Blasting

The challenge as we see it

Industrial plants require cost-effective equipment cleaning solutions that don’t interfere with normal workflow and facilitate peak efficiency operations with minimum downtime.

Our differentiated value

Our industrial cleaning experts at Veolia offer CO2 (dry ice) blasting services that can provide superior cleaning results, while reducing downtime. This advanced, environmentally-friendly technique allows cleaning to be done for equipment and motors without disassembly or cool-down time. The result is equipment that operates at peak performance with little or no operational interruption.

Unlike other blasting techniques that use abrasive materials that could harm equipment, CO2 blasting is gentle enough to use in sensitive environments, such as food processing plants and around electrical equipment. Other benefits of dry ice blasting services include:

  • A non-abrasive, non-flammable, non-conductive process
  • Reduction of cleaning downtime
  • Reduction of labor costs
  • A process that cleans equipment in place without disassembly or cool-down time
  • No generation of secondary waste​
  • An environmentally-friendly process

CO2 blasting is a unique process that uses soft dry ice at supersonic speeds for industrial cleaning applications.
