When choosing a dry ice blasting machine to clean mold, parts, or equipment. You might want to look for a small dry ice blaster, not too heavy like conventional dry ice blasting machines. So how different are the small dry ice blasting machines compared to the heavy ones? Besides, is it difficult to find a small dry ice blasting machine? Let’s find out with Specco2 with this article below:
The difference between a small dry ice blaster with other equipment
The first difference between a small dry ice blaster machine and the conventional one is in size and weight. The conventional dry ice blasting machines are very large in size, more than 140kg for one machine.
Therefore, the use of large equipment will be extremely difficult and only suitable for cleaning medium to extremely large items
Meanwhile, small-sized dry ice cleaning machines will be easily moved by wheels and are usually under 70kg in size. Small dry ice cleaning machines will be more suitable for cleaning small-sized equipment and items such as electronic circuit boards, etc.
Where can you find a small dry ice blaster?
In Vietnam or in Southeast Asia, if you are looking for a small-size dry ice blasting machine, you can contact Specco2. Specco2 is confident to be a distributor of dry ice cleaning machine as well as dry ice production equipment to suit your needs.
