Decontaminate food production surfaces



FSA Report on dry ice blasting for decontaminating food processing areas

Equipment and facilities get dirty with grease, wax, proteins, seasonings, crumbs, carbon residue, glue, ink and other build-up, preventing equipment from operating at peak efficiency and shortening asset life. Traditional cleaning methods can be time-consuming, ineffective and can involve significant amounts of chemicals or water, resulting in residues, moisture build-up/mold and secondary waste.

Cold Jet dry ice cleaning is a non-abrasive, non-conductive, environmentally responsible cleaning method successfully used in the food and beverage processing/packaging industries. Dry ice cleaning can clean food processing equipment without the need for scrubbing, water clean-up or the use of harmful chemicals that could contaminate food. As the dry ice sublimates on impact, there is no secondary waste created, and most equipment can be cleaned in place without time-consuming disassembly. Additionally, the dry ice is food grade quality, can decontaminate surfaces of bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria, help eliminate cross-contamination caused by nuts and other allergens and remove protein residues on food processing equipment.

Cleaning with Cold Jet Dry Ice Blasting in the Food and Beverage Industry Will:

  • Reduce Cleaning Time
  • Eliminate Secondary Waste
  • Reduce Water and Sanitation Costs
  • Clean Hot and Online
  • Provide a Non-abrasive Clean that Won’t Damage Equipment
  • Eliminate Relubrication
  • Reduce Production Downtime
  • Be Environmentally Responsible

**Note: Food Grade Dry Ice is approved by FDA and dry ice cleaning has been effectively used in AIB inspected facilities
