Examples of cleaning applications
Below are a few application areas of the
PURETEXX PXX 2000 dry ice blasting machine
How does dry ice technology work?
3mm CO2 dry ice pellets are poured into a hopper and accelerated to supersonic speed by means of compressed air.
- By means of a gun and a nozzle the pellets are discharged with a supersonic speed of up to 300 metres/second.
- The impacting pellets generate a direct, pin-point thermal shock. The maximum cooling at a depth of one millimetre is 2° Celsius.
- The dirt layer on the object contracts and becomes brittle. Thanks to the kinetic energy of the following pellets, the dirt is removed.
- Immediately after impacting, the pellets volatilize into CO2 gas
Because dry ice pellets have a hardness of only about 2 Mohs, no abrasive damage can occur. Surfaces are protected.
