Principle of Dry Ice Cleaning

What is dry ice?

Dry ice is the frozen form of carbon dioxide (CO2) created at an incredibly cool temperature of -79°C. Unlike its gaseous state naturally found on Earth, this solid substance is both non-toxic and completely odourless.

The Principle of Dry Ice Cleaning process applies a combination
of three phenomena.


Kinetic Energy

Experience the incredible power of dry ice pellets as they impact contaminated surfaces at speeds that surpass the sound barrier

Thermal Shock

Discover the incredible potential of rapid cooling, as impurities delicately crumble away, effortlessly revealing a flawlessly pristine surface.



Once the contaminated surface is touched, the pellets undergo a remarkable transformation into a vapour, flawlessly eliminating all traces of contamination.

Principle of Dry ice cleaning

The cleaning process utilises three fundamental phenomena: kinetic energy, thermal shock, and sublimation. This highly effective method removes only residues without generating any secondary waste.

Dry ice allows for a gentle and eco-friendly cleaning of sediment and residue, eliminating the need to dismantle any equipment. This not only saves you valuable time but also significantly reduces costs.

Dry ice has the remarkable ability to halt the growth of bacteria. Additionally, the dry ice cleaning process effectively eliminates the growth of fungi and spores, while diminishing the presence of other biological contaminants. Not only is it non-toxic and odourless, but it is also suitable for all types of surfaces – from sturdy metal and wood to delicate fine wood grains, glass, and textiles.
