Food Manufacturing Equipment Cleaning

Dry ice blasting for the food manufacturing industry allows installed and in-place equipment to be cleaned without the need to break it down and remove it from a production line. Bakery ingredients, grease, and oil can all removed without contamination. Dry ice blasting is safe to use around electrical panels and it will not short-circuit motors or switches. Dry ice cleaning has been effectively used in AIB inspected facilities. Our team currently services the Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana area.

Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting Include:

The number one benefit of dry ice blasting is that the food-grade CO2 will not contaminate your food or equipment. You won’t have to purchase another machine or throw out your food. Once our dry ice blasting job is complete, you can continue with your food production process in a safe manner. Our methods are also FDA, EPA, and USDA approved. That’s how you know, and we know, that our food-grade CO2 will leave your machines and food unharmed. Even molds that you design will not be damaged because our methods are non-abrasive. Our dry ice blasting is effective on hot, cold, plastic, and even metal surfaces. This cleaning method doesn’t require us to take apart any of your food manufacturing equipment.

  • What is dry ice blasting?

    Dry ice blasting is similar to sandblasting, bead blasting, or soda blasting where a media is accelerated in a pressurized air stream (or other inert gas) to impact and clean a surface.

  • How does the process work?

    Unlike other blast media, dry ice has a temperature of -109°F (-78.3°C). Because of the temperature difference between the dry ice particles and the surface being treated, thermal shock occurs during the process of dry ice blasting. This causes a breakdown of the bond between two dissimilar materials.

  • What happens to the contaminate?

    Contaminants can be dry, wet, hard or soft. Dry contaminates will break up into small chips and can be swept up or vacuumed. If the particles are large enough, they do not become airborne. If the contaminate is wet, such as grease or oils, the stream will move or push the liquid away much like a high pressure water stream would, except that the surface where the contaminate was will be dry and clean. To prevent redeposition, the operator should work in a methodical way, from the top down.
