How is dry ice blasting used in Food & Beverage?

Posted by The Cold Jet Team on Apr 1, 2020 4:14:50 PM

Food processing and packaging equipment accumulates grease, carbonized residue, seasonings, proteins, harmful microorganisms, biofilms, adhesives, labels, and many other contaminants that traditionally take significant time to clean.

Dry ice blasting provides a dry in-situ cleaning solution that is non-destructive, sustainable, does not use water or chemicals, and does not produce secondary waste. The process enables facilities to eliminate or reduce costly shutdown time for cleaning. Hard to reach corners and crevices are also easily cleaned with dry ice blasting, which results in an improved overall clean in your plant.
