The Perfect Fit for Any Dry Ice Blasting Job

Posted On June 13, 2016

Introducing the Viking Series

Wickens Dry Ice Blasting has recently introduced the new Viking series to its equipment line.  Equal in power and efficiency to other models, but with innovative designs and lower price tags, the Viking 3000 and the Viking Mini offer portability, reliability and affordability to contractors.

Slim and Strong – the Viking 3000


Build with challenging environments in mind, the Viking 3000 is only 400mm/15.75in wide making it easy to operate in small or narrow spaces. It has also been designed so there are no components sticking out from the sides that might catch in tight spots; instead all outward features are at the back of the unit. 

Like the bigger models, the Viking 3000 is still able to hold 25kg/55lbs of dry ice, allowing for approximately 30 minutes of operating time before refill, depending on the scope of use. The machine is also strong and durable, and offers versatile cleaning capabilities, being gentle on surfaces when required but also able to deliver a powerful deep clean.

The Viking 3000 is available in two power types; pneumatic power, which is perfect for contractors working in spaces that do not have a constant or reliable electrical supply, and electric power, which is ideal in factory or commercial settings where an electric supply is readily available.

Compact and Robust – the Viking Mini 

At a height of only 610mm/24 in and a weight of only 29 kg/64 lbs, the Viking Mini is easy to lift, store and bring out for frequent use.  It is the ideal dry ice blasting machine for regularly cleaning small parts, electronics, and process and packaging equipment.

Designed for use in work areas, the Viking Mini produces almost no noise.  This means an operator can carry out a cleaning job without interrupting production times. With a hopper capacity of 8 kg of dry ice, the machine can operate for up to 20 minutes before refill, depending on the pressure setting and use.

Unlike larger blasting machines, the Viking Mini does not require a high airflow compressor but instead has been designed to function using plant air supply. The lower air pressure does not affect the quality of clean – the Viking Mini delivers a quality deep clean every time.

Retailing for substantially less than other dry ice blasting machines, the Viking 3000 and the Viking Mini are the most affordable machines on the market.

The ceilings of factories and commercial properties are often overlooked in the cleaning process
– but ceilings need some attention too. Dry ice blasting is a particularly effective method for 
cleaning commercial and industrial ceilings that have corrugated steal decking and trusses.  
Blasting can be done as part of a regular cleaning routine, after a fire or in instances where paint 
is flaking off and falling into your production and process areas. It is also a great method for 
cleaning up production residue, such as grease, oil, and dirt.  
Here are three things you should know about commercial and industrial high level cleaning:
Sediment Accumulation Can Turn into a Health Issues
Accumulating dust and sediment on ceilings is more than just an aesthetic problem (though it 
can make locations look worn out and dull). The dirt and grime can also lead to health issues for 
your employees.  Dry ice blasting removes the buildup of grease, dirt, and even paint, to keep 
your facility as safe - and as clean - as possible.  Furthermore, falling dirt and debris can affect 
machinery and disrupt production lines, ultimately impacting product quality.  Therefore, 
regular cleanings can ensure a more productive workplace, and we can repaint your ceilings 
after cleaning to further improve the look of your space. 
High level cleaning can be performed with limited downtime
The biggest barrier to commercial and industrial high level cleaning is usually finding the time to 
get the job done.  Businesses understandably hesitate to interrupt production, but we are able 
to minimize your factory downtimes. Dry ice blasting is a completely dry method that is able to 
get into all of the hard to reach nooks and crevices of ceiling decking and trusses. It also 
produces no secondary waste, other than the residue removed, so the disruption to your 
business’ production is limited. We also offer the flexibility to schedule the cleaning around your 
requirements so as to make the cleaning process as efficient as possible.
Only work with professionals
Cleaning at high levels can be dangerous.  Therefore, it’s important to ensure that the company 
carrying out the cleaning has had its employees complete a “working at heights” training 
program, delivered by a certified training provider, to meet government requirements.  With 
decades of industrial cleaning experience, we pride ourselves on creating safe work 
environments for our customers and employees.
