Vintage Tractor Cleaning

Collectible and historic equipment can now be cleaned with dry ice blasting techniques that remove 100+ years of paint, grease, and coatings. Antique machinery can be in part indestructible, and still require great care to be taken around engine components that can’t be replaced.

In some instances, we use abrasive media (like crushed glass or garnet) mixed into our dry ice pellets through a second blast tank in unison with the first. We drip the media in at a very low rate to penetrate the adherent (paint, epoxy) so that the dry ice can get below the surface and expand; lifting the adherent from the substrate.
