Everyday food industry deals with the challenge of maintaining hygiene standards and cleanliness. The equipment utilized in this industry needs to be perfectly clean in order to maximize the production capacity and to reduce the chances of accidents occurring due to poor maintenance.
Food processing and packaging equipment gets dirty with grease, wax, proteins, seasonings, crumbs, glue and other buildup. This prevents the equipment from operating at peak efficiency.
Unfortunately, traditional methods like wire brushes, sand blasting, solvents and high pressure are timeconsuming, ineffective and usually involve significant amounts of water and resulting waste.
The cleaning method Dry Ice Blasting, which uses harmless dry ice pellets, is preferred at many levels in the food and beverage industry. Dry ice blasting is an approved method of cleaning by the FDA.
