As mentioned before, besides being used to clean molds in industries, dry ice machines are also used to clean and sanitize electronic devices such as electronic boards, In this article, Specco2 will guide you to clean electronic equipment safely with a dry ice blasting machine

When will you need to clean electric equipment

After a long period of use, your electronic device will be susceptible to dust, grease and other dirt. Especially in the production environment, factory, it is inevitable that electronic equipment gets dirty.

Therefore, after a certain period of time, usually 6 months or 1 year, you will need to re-clean the electronics in the factory to make them as clean as possible.

The principle of dry ice blasting

A dry ice blasting machine is definitely very easy to use. Firstly, pour a sufficient amount of dry icepour 2-3 bowls of dry ice at the size you want into the hopper and use a suitable nozzle to blow over the engine parts that need cleaning; including hard-to-reach surfaces and crevices. Secondly, dry ice stored in the hopper will be accelerated by compressed air from air compressor or from factory compressed air source and blasted out through the nozzle at supersonic speed; aiming at the designated surface and dislodging all the contaminants, dirt, and other substances.

The whole process will be rapid, abrasive-free, moisture-free, chemical-free, and most importantly, environmentally sustainable as no secondary waste is left behind post-cleaning.

How dry ice blasting clean electric devices and equipment

Dry ice blasting for electronics cleaning is an alternative cleaning solution that is not only sustainable, but outperforms traditional methods thanks to its equipment. equipped with modern machinery using the most advanced technology.

This electronic device cleaning method is mainly used to remove stubborn dirt, paint corroded surfaces, clean composite tools, repair and refinish parts and prepare device surfaces. bag. The dry ice machine will work using MicroParticles particles commonly known as dry ice (made up of recycled carbon dioxide).

These dry ice can be designed according to size and shape, are guided through an air compressor and ejected by a nozzle at supersonic speed and sublime instantly upon impact, contact with the surface of the electronic device to be cleaned.

As a result, stubborn dirt on your electronics will be completely blown off the surface to be cleaned. In fact, the process is extremely quick and only takes a few seconds to see the results.

I3 MicroClean


The i³ MicroClean is a compact, lightweight, single-hose low pressure, electric blasting system that utilizes dry ice block with low flow rates of 12 cfm and blocks of ice at variable air pressures from 20 to 140 psi (1.4 to 9.7 bar).

I3 MicroClean advantages:

  • Efficient: Efficiently uses dry ice providing as much as 45 minutes of cleaning before reloading.
  • Designed for Precision Applications: Safely clean delicate surfaces and complex cavities.
  • Flexibility: Adjustable blast pressure allows for flexibility in order to optimize performance.
  • Low Noise Operation: The MicroClean requires less air pressure to operate effectively, resulting in a quieter operation.

I3 MicroClean 2

I3 MicroClean 2 is an upgraded successor from its predecessor – the I3 MicroClean with the following benefits:

  • Super efficient: This machine is designed to reduce overall consumptive usage by more than 25% compared to I3 MicroClean.
  • Easy control: You can adjust, save and access user-defined burst parameters for greater efficiency thanks to the 7″ LCD display.
  • Using less air pressure, it also produces less noise.
  • IoT Capabilities: Remote Monitoring with SPECCo2 CONNECT.
  • Absolute cleaning ability: Deep clean on all terrain surfaces.



Because of its excellent cleaning capabilities and efficiency, a dry ice blasting equipment is a long-term investment. Especially in electrical applications that need meticulous, dry cleaning. It will not only assist industries and factories save time, but it will also boost production efficiency, conserve resources, and be ecologically beneficial.
