Dry ice blast cleaning.
Aero Series dry ice blast cleaning systems are said to provide
advanced, economical dry ice cleaning in an environmentally friendly
format for a variety of industries. The models include the
electric-pneumatic Aero 40, Aero 80, Aero 80-DX and Aero 80-HP, and the
pneumatic-powered Aero C100, which is said to clean twice as fast as
other pneumatic systems on the market. The company's dry ice
blasting systems use non-abrasive media that will not damage surfaces or
equipment. The media, dry ice pellets or particles, create
mini-explosions on the surfaces being cleaned, lifting away dirt and
contaminants. Unlike sand, bead or soda blasting, dry ice blasting is
non-abrasive and does not leave any secondary waste, as the dry ice
pellets or particles sublimate (convert from solid to gas) upon impact.
Dry ice blasting is also safe and non-toxic, does not create downstream
contamination, and reduces or eliminates employee exposure to dangerous
chemical cleaning agents. Dry ice blasting has been approved by the EPA,
FDA and USDA as an acceptable cleaning method, according to the company.
The Aero Series is designed with exclusive patented features.
