Decarbonising your car engine is essential for car maintenance, especially if you want your car to be in its best working condition.
Category: Car Maintenance Advice
Car engine decarbonisation removes excess carbon deposits from the cylinder head, combustion chamber and piston chambers.
If too much carbon builds up in the engine, it may lead to inefficiencies that reduce performance, damage or even cause the engine to stop working altogether.
While you may have warranty packages that cover engine failure, always remember that prevention is better than cure.
There are two types of car engine decarbonisation - mechanical and chemical.
For this technique, the workshop will physically scrape off carbon deposits found in your engine. In the hands of a well-trained and experienced mechanic, this process is successful, but with an incompetent one, it can be disastrous.
This process is a less invasive method that utilises alcohols and terpenes added to the conventional fuel supply. These chemicals dissolve the carbon deposits formed in various engine parts, and the carbon gets ejected via the exhaust.

Dry ice blasting
Dry ice blasting, dry ice cleaning and CO2 blasting are common terms used for this technique. But they all mean the same thing.
Using a 'Velocity High-Pressure Dry Ice Machine' to blast compressed cold air into specific, hard-to-reach, or sensitive cleaning areas means removing carbon/dirt/residual deposits without damaging delicate parts.
One of the advantages of this method is that the dry ice sublimates entirely to CO2. Hence there will be no residues such as abrasives or wastewater.
