Coffee roasters, grinders, and packaging equipment become clogged with burnt-on coffee grounds.
Cleaning coffee roasters by manually scraping with hand tools is time consuming and labor intensive. Hand cleaning typically takes eight to ten hours to clean one roaster. This method may also include adding water, which leads to the potential for bacterial growth and extended drying time.
Dry ice blasting cleans coffee roasters and packaging equipment in considerably less time, without creating secondary waste or adding water. Using dry ice blasting, a roaster can be cleaned in just two hours.
It also safely cleans food-grade surfaces, does not add foreign material or allergens, and reduces the risk for microbial growth and cross-contamination.
