Messer and its partner Easyclean have developed a new blast cleaning process with multiple benefits.
In France, Messer and Easyclean have developed ‘cryo-soft blasting’, a new blast cleaning process using a mixture of dry ice and various abrasive materials.
The new process is three to four times more effective than conventional cryogenic cleaning, and uses 40% less dry ice and compressed air.
Unlike conventional ‘soft-blasting’, there is no abrasion, and user convenience is enhanced as a result of reduced dust emissions.
Furthermore, the process is completely dry, so there is no liquid waste to dispose of.
Successful tests have already been carried out for the removal of paint and welding beads, and the process has been proven to clean wooden shutters without altering the structure.
