Many workshops and factories use abrasion blasting to smooth a rough surface or to remove surface contaminants. The most common methods are to use compressed air to blast a surface with fine particles of sand, metal, glass, and other materials depending on what abrasion level is required.
The use of Dry Ice as the blasting media has been on the rise, At Abdullah Hashim Industrial Gases & Equipment providers (AHG), one of our standard products is Dry Ice which is the solid form of Carbon Dioxide (CO2).
Dry Ice blasting involves propelling pellets at extremely high speeds using compressed air. Dry ice pellets are soft and less dense than other blasting media. When dry ice pellets hit the surface of whatever is being blasted, the dry ice immediately sublimes and immediately cools what is touched.
The force of the dry ice hitting and the difference in temperature of the surface compared to what is underneath allows for the top layer such as dirt, rust, and other contaminants to be blown off easily without affecting the original surface.
Following certain safety precautions, due to the involvement of Carbon Dioxide, ensures that the procedure is safe, these precautions include:
