Dry Ice Blasting Applications:

Asphalt & Bitumen Removal with Dry Ice Blasting

Keep your materials flowing consistently and efficiently by cleaning pavement equipment with dry ice blasting.

Letting asphalt product build up and accumulate on equipment creates quality concerns and shortens wear part lifespan.

Cleaning asphalt, bitumen, and tar from paving equipment, trucks, or tanks with traditional methods such as pressure washers, chemicals, or chisels can be very time consuming and harmful to the environment.

Cleaning with dry ice blasting provides a safer and faster alternative, which is completely dry, non-toxic, and does not create a secondary waste stream. Keep your equipment in optimal working order while promoting environmental initiatives, even when operating in colder temperatures.

See what other Cold Jet customers are saying

It’s at least twice as fast, if not faster. With dry ice cleaning, as soon as you hit the build-up, it flies off. The drivers of the trucks love it because it’s much cleaner and they have less problems, such as the nozzles clogging. It’s cost effective, the clean-up is so much easier, it’s safer and it’s environmentally friendly.

When you come in with something non-abrasive, they absolutely love it because they know that, when you’re blasting a tough piece of debris, you’re not damaging their equipment.
