Food processing and packaging machines get dirty and contaminated over a period of use with grease, wax, proteins, seasonings, crumbs, glue and other material build-up, preventing the equipment from operating at peak efficiency.
Traditional manual cleaning methods are not only time-consuming and inefficient but also involve significant wastage of water and resources.
Dry ice blasters from Cold Jet Australia deliver a superior cleaning process that can reduce cleaning time by up to 80%, eliminate secondary waste and result in significant reduction of overall cleaning costs.
Dry ice blasting is a proven method as documented by the Food Standards Agency to effectively decontaminate food processing equipment surfaces of harmful Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria.
Dry ice blasting is recommended for cleaning slicers and dividers, electrical components and motors, radial feeders, pack-off tables, labellers and gluers, ovens, conveyors, mixers, baggers, palletisers, proof box grids and food moulds among others.
Dry ice blasting is a non-abrasive cleaning method and does not damage sensitive equipment.
Key benefits of dry ice blasting in food manufacturing environments:
- Reduces cleaning time
- No secondary waste is generated
- Reduces water and sanitation costs
- Non-abrasive cleaning
- Eliminates re-lubrication
- Reduces production downtime caused by conventional cleaning
- Food-grade dry ice approved by FDA
- Dry ice cleaning effectively used in AIB inspected facilities
- Environmentally responsible process
