Experience a cleaner clean with a fraction of the waste
Food processing and packaging equipment accumulates grease, carbonized residue, seasonings, proteins, harmful bacteria, biofilms, adhesives, labels and many other contaminants that traditionally take significant time to clean.
Dry ice blasting for the food industry provides an in-situ cleaning solution that is non-destructive, sustainable, does not use water or chemicals and does not produce secondary waste.
Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting for Food & Beverage Processing Equipment
Dry ice blasting is a dry cleaning process that does not produce secondary waste or residue
Dry ice cleaning offers an effective, dry, sustainable and non-destructive cleaning method that can be performed in-place, which eliminates or reduces costly shutdown time for cleaning. Hard to reach corners and crevices are easily cleaned with dry ice blasting, resulting in an improved overall clean in your plant.
Not only does dry ice cleaning remove contaminants, but it will also result in log reductions in bacteria counts and will remove biofilms without water or chemicals* – all while significantly reducing cleaning time, labor and overall costs.

*Dry ice blast cleaning is not considered a sanitizer.
Because of how effective the dry ice blasting process was on the inside of the barrels, we plan on repeating the blasting process at least once a year. With the wood now very clean and rejuvenated, implementing a more formal wood tank management plan, and increasing the production of our wood aged beer, we’ll have better quality, more delicious beer.
