Remove rust, scaling paint, corrosion and food particles with no chemical residue.
Dry-ice blasting can be used to clean processing equipment to effectively remove rust, scaling paint, corrosion and food particles. This process can decontaminate food processing surfaces of Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria such that these microorganisms are not detectable using conventional microbiological methods. It may also be used to clean equipment without disassembly and without producing fire or electrical hazards.
The EPA recommends dry-ice blasting as an alternative to many types of solvent-based cleaning. Dry-ice blasting can clean numerous objects with differing, complex geometrics at once. Due to the blast media sublimating without residue, dry-ice blasting finds use in the food processing, pharmaceutical, semiconductor, manufacturing and aerospace industries among others.
Compared to other blasting-cleaning methods, dry-ice blasting produces fewer waste products, no water run-off and leaves no chemical residue as dry-ice sublimates at room temperature.
