Food processors can now save money by using dry ice cleaning equipment for their food service facilities. You see, dry ice cleaning is similar in concept to bead, sand, and even soda blasting in that it effectively cleans surfaces. Fortunately, dry ice cleaning uses solid CO2 microparticles or “pellets” at high velocities to impact the surface and clean it.
Using traditional cleaning methods can be time-consuming and costly, which can make having downtime seemingly impossible. However, using dry ice cleaning methods can help promote food service facilities to save time and money. So, here are four benefits of dry cleaning for foodservice facilities.
There Is No Secondary Waste
Using dry ice as a cleaning method helps enhance sustainability efforts. This is because dry ice sublimates upon impact with whichever surface is being clean, which means there will be no secondary waste, moisture, or residue. Fortunately, this helps eliminate any additional cleanup, cleaning preparation, or disposal of secondary waste.
Water isn’t used during the cleaning process, which means equipment can still be used while it’s online and operating. Dry ice is nonconductive, so food processors may also use dry ice cleaning on electrical equipment.
Dry Ice Ice Nonabrasive
Dry ice can clean sensitive electrical equipment due to it being soft media. So, if you own a circuit board, you can use dry ice to clean without worrying about it getting damaged.
Dry Ice Can Improve The Safety Of Workers
Using dry ice as a cleaning method can help eliminate workers’ exposure from using toxic materials. Depending on the equipment that needs to be cleaned, dry ice can also help avoid repetitive motions of hand-cleaning, scrubbing, or any cleaning that involves sanding, pounding, or scraping, which can benefit workers’ overall physical strength and safety.
Using dry ice can help reduce any times of needing to shut down your facility. This is since dry ice can clean equipment that’s hot and online. So, cleaning equipment in less time than the average traditional cleaning method actually helps facilities get more production cycles from existing equipment.
