During the operation of factories and plants, it won’t be very hard to catch a glimpse of equipment and machines encountering rust and signs of corrosion after a long time using; which is very difficult to remove. Join the Specco2 team to learn more about the dry ice blasting machine and how its superior cleaning ability can help big time in removing rust and corrosion in the article below.


During the operation of manufacturers and factories, equipment, machines, and tools often encounter rust after a long time of use. This is because metal equipment, when exposed to the right air and humidity, will lead to the formation of corrosive surfaces that usually have the color brown or reddish-brown. In addition, rainwater and reactive impurities can also cause metal surfaces to rust. This will cause the machine to operate less efficiently. When there is too much rust adhering to the surface, the equipment will be severely damaged and cannot operate as well as before, affecting the quality of work and above all, increasing the cost of repair or machine replacement.

To clean rust stains, corrosive and pitted oxidation surfaces on equipment, people often use rust remover chemicals as they don’t cost much and the results is also quite alright. However, the use of chemicals can adversely affect the health of the cleaning staff. Also, the acid in the chemical solution can accelerate the corrosion process, reducing the longevity of the piece of equipment significantly.


To solve this problem, people have gradually turned to an alternative method of cleaning rust and corrosion. It is by using a dry ice blasting machine because of its outstanding cleaning performance and great advantages. Such as:

  • Optimal cleaning and moisture-free, there’s no need to be afraid of rust anymore
  • No harmful chemicals are used, very friendly to the environment
  • Minimize (manual) labor time, shorten cleaning time
  • Non-abrasive, prolonged the equipment’s life
  • No secondary waste, reducing cleanup and disposal costs significantly
  • Effective removal of coatings, rust, and corrosion, improving machine’s productivity
  • Improves the appearance of the appliance used

The dry ice blasting machine is a superior cleaning device that uses dry ice made primarily from recycled carbon dioxide so that when in use, it will not contribute to the greenhouse effect and is considered very friendly to the environment. The machine works mainly by blasting dry ice conducting through a specially designed nozzle at supersonic speed. When it collides with the surface of the rusted device, the dry ice will break the bond between the impurities and the device surface, removing the stain in just one use and then sublimating. This phenomenon is created thanks to the combination of kinetic and thermodynamic energy and will not leave any secondary waste. Incredibly safe for user’s health and easy to use.

By using a combination of dry ice blaster and E-CO 150 (Abrasive solution + dry ice for paint removal, coating, and corrosion removal) we can remove deeply pitted rust and corrosion while eliminating the problems of traditional removal methods; such as excessive dust and waste. The solution achieves is a metal surface restored to its white finish (original state); achieving standard surface qualities such as SP 10 / SA 2.5 / NA 2.
