Dry ice blasting is a process proven for more than 65 years as a highly effective cleaning technology for a wide range of food production machines and facilities. The combination of temperature, more than 100 degrees below zero F., applied pressure, and gentle abrasive effect safely removes food and other residues from production surfaces. It also kills pathogenic organisms such as E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria. If your production facility needs an effective strategy to meet challenges related to cleanliness, production quality, and cleaning downtime, dry ice blasting by Blast it Clean could be the perfect solution.
No Harmful Chemicals
Dry ice blasting means no abrasive damage to degrade your machines, no toxic residues requiring even more cleaning, and no residual abrasive materials. Other types of abrasive blasting could damage delicate surfaces in your machines, and could leave leftover grit on your production area surfaces and floors. The dry ice blasting abrasive media, frozen carbon dioxide, disappears without a trace as soon as its work is done.
No More Waiting for Problems
Instead of waiting for your facility and equipment to get dirty with wax, grease, seasonings, crumbs, or other buildup, scheduled maintenance is the best way to keep your food production facility running in top shape. Scheduled dry ice blasting can maintain the production capabilities of food processing equipment to help you continually meet specifications for cleanliness. Minimizing or eliminating costly product quality problems related to cleanliness, and their related shutdowns and potential liabilities, can help maximize the production and profitability of your operations.
No Extended Shutdown of Production
Dry ice blasting technicians can minimize your unscheduled downtime by doing the work during your standard shutdown periods. Dry ice blasting specialists can schedule their work around yours, minimizing your production loss during the cleaning process.
No More Paying Employees to Scrub
Dry ice blasting personnel do the cleaning so your employees don’t have to. Once your experts have done the necessary production machine disassembly required for cleaning, the blasting team does the labor, leaving you with a clean machine, ready to reassemble and resume production. You will pay your employees to do what benefits you most – make your product.
