Questions About Dry Ice Blasting?
Dry ice blasting is a revolutionary method of eco-friendly cryogenic cleaning that removes baked on grime and a multitude of residues from production equipment, inhibiting the spread of harmful bacteria, such as salmonella, E. coli and listeria that can cause food-borne illness.
This groundbreaking technology removes protein residue with a high-velocity blasting stream of food-grade dry ice pellets. Pellets are made by taking liquid carbon dioxide from a pressurized storage tank and dropping it to ambient pressure to produce snow. The snow is then pushed through a die to make pellets. These pellets are non-toxic, have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are used to clean ovens, conveyor belts, moulds, dry mixers, laminators and packaging equipment. Consisting of the same substance used to carbonate beverages, they are ideal for the food and baking industry to prevent contamination during cleaning while eliminating hazardous build-up where bacteria and mould can accumulate. Nabisco, Hunt-Wesson, Uncle Ben's, Pillsbury, Frito-Lay and General Mills are amoung the food industry leaders that clean using dry ice blasting systems.
The process of dry ice blasting is as follows:
It is recommended dry ice blasting be conducted by a certified contractor or technician.
Other industries use this technique of cleaning because it is quick and performed without the need for disassembly of equipment. Dry ice blasting is also non-abrasive. It swiftly removes most contaminates without damage to switches, panels, lines, tubes, wiring or belts.
This innovative cleaning method is becoming increasingly popular and is living up to its fame of being the most time-effective, eco-friendly and non-toxic cleaning process for industrial equipment.
