12/01/2018 - The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has recognized Coulson Ice Blast’s technology, which utilizes crushed ice cubes as a blast media, as an “alternative, less toxic blasting material“ for industrial cleaning purposes.
Coulson Ice Blast is the manufacturer of the IceStorm90 ice blasting machine. The technology is similar to Dry Ice Blasting, but uses crushed H2O ice cubes instead of dry ice, thus reducing the safety risks, environmental impact, and media costs associated with industrial cleaning.
“We are thrilled that OSHA has recognized our patented technology as a safer and environmentally friendly alternative”, says Foster Coulson, head of Coulson Ice Blast. “I believe this is a testament to our Ice Blasting technology and to its overwhelming adoption and support in the marketplace.”
Coulson Ice Blast’s IceStorm90 industrial cleaning machine was launched in 2017 and was highlighted by R&D Magazine as “one of the 100 most technologically significant new products of the year.”
