DRY ICE BLASTING: FOOD PROCESSING
Hygiene in food production is taken very seriously. The need for food manufacturers to comply with industry regulations has never been more strict. Daily cleaning routines along with regular deep cleans are important but not as vital as dry ice blast cleaning.
The use of dry ice blasting in the food industry has become a main focus for Ice Blasting Solutions we regularly ice blast conveyor lines, degrease chain gear, remove salt and grease build-up in nut production. For the per food sector a large amount of fat is used in their process and we have successfully cleaned and removed this including all of the above.
When you choose dry ice blasting/ cryogenic cleaning, no clean up is needed and all bacteria is killed immediately with no chemicals used, making it the most effective and eco-friendly cleaning solution.
HEAT EXCHANGER UNITS
Above you can see the before and after effects of how a member of our ice blasting team has removed sugar which had been burnt and stuck onto heat exchanger units. The task was to clean 7 of these units which was completed in one day. We achieved dramatic results and our success is easy to recognise in the photographs.
DRY ICE BLASTING BENEFITS:
– Non Abrasive: no damage to the substrate
– No mess: sublimes into the atmosphere
– Superior clean: Traditional cleaning methods are more costly and damaging
– Health & Safety: Safe around electrical components
– No downtime costs: Equipment & machinery can be cleaned whilst still in operation
Examples of Dry Ice Blasting in the Food Processing Industry:
– Oven cleaning
– Electrical components
– Conveyor line cleaning
– Packaging line cleaning
– De-greasing of chain gear
– Fat deposit removal
