Compact and portable high performance Ice Blaster.
No dampness, no waste water, no wear, no erosion, no chemicals.
KÄRCHER’s original ice blasting machine, the IB 15/80, is designed for high performance cleaning and restoration of a wide variety of objects and surfaces. The new, lighter and more compact IB 7/40 offers many of the benefits of the larger machine but can be run from a much smaller compressed air supply, therefore making it ideal for use with in-house compressed air systems.

About Ice Blasting
Ice blasting uses dry ice pellets to clean surfaces, tools, moulds and machinery without causing damage to the substrate or the environment. The dry ice pellets are injected into a jet of compressed air, accelerated to speeds in excess of 150 m/s and then fired at the surface to be cleaned. The abrupt cooling of the surface causes a thermal shock and produces fine cracks in the top layer. The dry ice pellets penetrate these cracks, lift the contaminant from the surface and return to the atmosphere as CO 2 gas leaving only the contaminant behind. Ice blasting uses no chemicals, leaves no wastewater, is environmentally friendly and can be used in areas where cleaning with water is prohibited or inconvenient.
