Brilliant Blaster™

Brilliant Blaster™ overview

Dry Ice International is proud to introduce the Brilliant Blaster™ – a dry ice blasting machine designed and maintained in South Africa for specialised industrial cleaning. Engineered according to the highest technical specifications, the Brilliant Blaster™ provides both the commercial and industrial industries with a non-toxic, non-abrasive cleaning alternative to traditional abrasive blasting methods, hazardous chemicals and high-pressure hosing.

The Brilliant Blaster™ is based on cryogenic cleaning technology, using 20-100kg of dry ice per hour which, in the solid form of carbon dioxide, is accelerated in a pressurised air stream and directed at a surface in order to clean it. The method is similar to other forms of abrasive blasting such as sand blasting, plastic bead blasting, or soda blasting but substitutes dry ice as the blasting medium.

Proudly South African

The Brilliant Blaster™ is designed and built in South Africa by an experienced team of mechanical engineers and artisans, taking cognisance of harsh working environments in Africa.


The blaster is fully pneumatic with no need for an electrical supply. Therefore, it is a viable option considering the current shortage of adequate electricity supply in the country.

Double-hose system

A system with “punch”. This system is hassle-free and has been proven to be the best system available for applications with stronger cleaning power requirements.

Spares and Maintenance

Very little maintenance is required for the machine. Both services and spare parts are available locally, therefore eliminating the need for expensive imported spares and extended waiting periods.

Service Exchange Machines

The Brilliant Blaster™ may be exchanged with another machine in the unlikely event of failure, to ensure continuity on the job.


The frame and panels of the machine are built with high quality stainless steel, grade 304 which guarantees unique durability and toughness.

Lighter in Weight

Weighing at least 40% less than competitor models, the Brilliant Blaster™ is maneouverable in difficult and hard-to-reach areas, e.g. mine shafts.


“Off balance sheet” financing is available for purchase of the machine.


The Brilliant Blaster™ reduces wear and tear on mining equipment and is ideal for cleaning mining machinery, electrical installations, electro-mechanical equipment, surfaces and moulds. It is also perfect for removing coatings such as oil, grease, coal dust, carbon, soot and mould.

Fire, Water & Mold Removal

The Brilliant Blaster™ is designed and built in South Africa by an experienced team of mechanical engineers and artisans, taking cognisance of the harsh working environment in Africa.


Includes the reduction or removal of release agents, product residues, glue heads, out gassing issues, mould damage and gloss levels.


The Brilliant Blaster™ will clean printing press side frames, gripper bars, roll ends, anilox rolls, delivery units and ink pumps.


With no water or chemicals required, the Brilliant Blaster™ can be used to clean stator and rotor windings, DC armatures and pole rings, switchgear and transformers.

Pulp & Paper

The dry ice blasting method will clean motor and generator windings, dryer cans, rolls and paper machine structures.


The Brilliant Blaster™ can be used for general clean-up, baking trays, ovens, walls and paint removal. It is also ideal to clean food processing equipment to effectively decontaminate surfaces of Salmonella Enteritidis, E.coli and Listeria monocytogenes.


Range of other applications, e.g. restoration and aeronautics.
