  6. 6. <ul><li>Scientific Principles </li></ul><ul><li>Thermal Effect </li></ul><ul><li>Kinetic Effect </li></ul><ul><li>Sublimation Effect </li></ul>
  7. 7. Thermal Effect Dry ice particles have a temperature of –109F. When these particles impact the impurities on the surface, the impurities are cooled down tremendously, shrink and then loosen from the surface. In most cases the surface temperature will fall below most impurities freeze point. As impurities freeze they lose their adhesion.
  8. 8. <ul><li>Kinetic Effect </li></ul>When dry ice particles exit the nozzle, they have kinetic energy. As in commercial blast cleaning the impurities are dislodged from the surface. Unlike sand, dry ice has a lower hardness characteristic and therefore greater kinetic energy can be used to break impurities from the surface without damage occurring.
  9. 9. <ul><li>Sublimation Effect </li></ul>When dry ice particles strike the surface, they immediately phase into gas from solid. The effect increases the gas volume approximately 700 times. The sudden increase in volume assists in moving the brittle fragments of impurities away from the surface.

Many other factors are considered. </li></ul><ul><li>Increasingly important to lower the bottom line to maximize </li></ul><ul><li>the top line. </li></ul><ul><li>Labor costs, workman’s comp insurance, and environmental </li></ul><ul><li>requirements are only small examples of the burden many </li></ul><ul><li>companies experience. </li></ul><ul><li>Important to find and use new technology that can relieve </li></ul><ul><li>these burdens. </li></ul><ul><li>Dry Ice Blasting is a cost effective means of reducing overhead. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>In an article for the Journal of Protective Coatings & Linings, author J.D. Hansink, stated that in the year 2000 there was 1.6 million tons of Silica sand purchased for sandblasting/coatings operations . The sand cannot be reused, and this contaminated sand has contributed to contaminated sites and ultimately goes into landfills across the country. </li></ul><ul><li>In January 2004, Wayne Davey, Chairman of Ventura County Economic Development Association stated his top 10 issues for 2004. Water issues impacting the region is one of his top ten concerns. His concern is not only the amount of water supply due to drought and population increase, but also water pollution and impaired watersheds. </li></ul><ul><li>Michael Peevey, President of the California Public Utilities Commission stated in March 2004 that his #1 goal was energy efficiency . Commercial and industrial customers can increase their energy efficiencies by 10% or more by keeping HVAC units & machinery clean and protected. </li></ul><ul><li>Tinker Air Force reported it eliminated hazardous waste disposal associated with 17,000 gallons of chemicals they no longer need to use because they are now using dry ice blasting. </li></ul>ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
  21. 21. Environmental Concerns Green House Effect – Global Warming It has been established by EPA studies that CO 2 emissions are contribute to the global warming problems of the world. Our process uses CO 2 that would otherwise be vented to the atmosphere. Therefore, our process does not add any additional CO 2 emissions. Our process uses, in essence, recycled waste product, then converts it into a usable phase. American FreezeBlast applies it as a replacement for traditional hazardous material such as solvents and chemicals.
