39- Can Dry Ice Blasting be used on Buildings?

Yes. Dry ice blasting can be used to remove soot and dirt from buildings and thus restore surfaces.
The method is often used for factory buildings where it is crucial to recommence production as quickly as possible.
Because dry ice vaporizes on contact with the building surface, dry ice blasting can be used to clean the insides
of buildings without the need to move equipment, machinery or furnishings. Where traditional
cleaning methods – involving the use of water and chemicals – are used, it is often necessary to dismantle
and move equipment to protect it from damage.

40- Can Dry Ice Blasting be used in the Pharmaceutical Industry?

Yes,. the pharmaceutical industry sets high hygiene standards. Dry ice blasting is therefore the ideal
cleaning method. It is a clean and dry process that effectively and quickly removes coatings and deposits
from molds, conveyors, containers, mixers and other production equipment. Steam and water-based cleaning methods
can produce health risks. Firstly, steam can provide a breeding ground for bacteria and other micro-organisms.
Dry ice blasting is a dry process that eliminates this problem. Secondly, cleaning with water and steam can
increase the risk of accidents with electronics. As dry ice vaporizes on contact with the surface being cleaned,
there is no secondary waste material. Because dry ice blasting is a non-abrasive process, molds used in production
will not be damaged.

41- Does Dry Ice Blasting have any Environmental Consequences or Benefits?

Dry ice is completely non-toxic. In contrast to cleaning methods that use water or high-pressure hosing,
there is no emission of polluted water to the environment. The dislodged coating can be swept or vacuumed
up and disposed of as appropriate. Dry ice blasting produces no toxic fumes from solvents and other chemicals
during cleaning.
