Many industrial construction and related projects require cleaning and decontamination carried out in robust ways, and one of the top methods for doing so is known as dry ice blasting. Unfortunately, however, there are a few misconceptions out there about dry ice blasting - some of them are relatively harmless, but others might stop clients from having the proper information on this important process, and could negatively impact a job as a result.
At Redi, not only are we here to offer an unmatched selection of industrial construction services for Wyoming and nearby clients, including dry ice blasting for any of your needs, we also provide basic information and expertise to ensure our clients stay informed throughout any of our services. What are some of the most common myths out there regarding dry ice blasting, plus proper information in each of these areas?
We're not sure where this particular myth came from, but it's incorrect in more than one way. For starters, dry ice blasting costs less than many other similar cleaning methods that might be used, especially if the process is done correctly. It's also important to note that dry ice blasting uses up less energy than many other methods - this helps reduce overall costs as well!
Furthermore, there are many situations where using dry ice blasting will actually save money on a project. For instance, heavy buildups of grease, dirt, and other residue can be cleaned off quickly and efficiently using dry ice blasting - this helps to reduce the amount of time that needs to be spent on a job, thus saving money in the long run.
Again, this is an incorrect assumption - though in this case, we can at least understand where the misconception comes from. It's true that dry ice blasting involves a powerful blast of dry ice (solid CO2) particles through a hose to remove contaminants, but that process does not damage even delicate surfaces.
In fact, dry ice blasting is completely non-abrasive, so you can use it on many electronic parts and other equipment without worrying about any potential damage. While there are certainly some limits in terms of what materials dry ice blasting can safely be used on, these are few and far between.
Another common misconception is that dry ice blasting can be unsafe, especially when it comes to health and safety. On the contrary, dry ice blasting is actually quite safe - there are no toxic chemicals used during the process, plus any leftover material from the job can be quickly cleaned up afterwards.
In addition, because of its non-abrasive nature, dry ice blasting is suitable for use in food processing areas, as the lack of any potentially-harmful particulate means that it won't contaminate food products.
On the other side of the mythical coin when discussing dry ice blasting, some people might assume that this is an easy process to carry out without any special training or knowledge. This could not be further from the truth - dry ice blasting requires a skilled professional who is knowledgeable on the subject and able to correctly use the equipment involved.
At Redi, we ensure that our technicians have all of the necessary training and experience to carry out a dry ice blasting job in the most efficient, effective, and safe manner possible. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with reliable services that get the job done correctly the first time.
Finally, there are some who mistakenly believe that dry ice blasting isn't really effective when it comes to cleaning and decontamination - but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, dry ice blasting is highly effective at removing even heavy contaminants such as grease, oil, dirt, mold, and more with minimal effort.
