Cold Jet History
We've been pioneering the research and development of dry ice blasting and setting the standard for quality, performance and reliability in the field for more than 20 years.
Since our inception in 1986, we've been recognized as the leader in dry ice technology, earning certification from the Canadian Standards Association, the German TUV and the Japanese HPGCL. And in the US, our dry ice blast systems meet all USDA, FDA and EPA guidelines.
Founded on the idea of creating cost-effective, environmentally responsible and technologically advanced dry ice solutions, Cold Jet remains committed to satisfying the growing worldwide demand for advanced dry ice solutions in new and innovative ways. And our past is driving our future. Take a look.
Cold Jet officially opened its doors in Loveland, Ohio with just 25 employees, 1 production facility and the desire to turn a great idea into an even better product.
After putting in a lot of overtime, the world's first patent-protected and industrially certified commercial dry ice blasting product is completed.
Cold Jet produced large, integrated dry ice pellet making and pellet blasting systems. Expensive ancillary equipment was required for the operation to work.
The U.S. Air Force awards Cold Jet a contract to develop dry ice blast cleaning and paint stripping systems.
The pellet making and pellet blasting systems were separated so the customers could buy dry ice on an "as needed" basis.
The patented coatings removal process, FLASHJET®, earns the FAA's approval.
To keep up with increasing demand, international locations capable of supporting RDS product installations in the U.S., Europe and Japan are developed.
Aerospace technology was applied to the product, ancillary equipment was all but eliminated, blasting performance was improved, units were downsized, noise was reduced and prices were cut in half.
Based upon proprietary technology and materials, a family of low-pressure, low-volume blasting nozzles is created.
The powerful P3000: 4-cylinder Pelletizer hits the market.
The AeRO series Radial Feed product line and the P325 mini-Pelletizer makes its debut.
We take Europe by storm with Cold Jet Europe bvba in Brussels, Belgium. And we acquire Alpheus in California to expand our product offerings.
