Client Case History: Blast-It-Clean

By Jay Dillon, Blast-It-Clean, and Douglas Burson, Sphere Marketer & Analytics


Keeping your food production facility clean is a huge concern. Between the equipment and the facility itself, there are many places that food particles can get stuck. While this might not seem harmful to production, you know leftover food particles make the perfect home for bacteria. Even worse, you’ve learned that many ways of cleaning are not thorough or efficient enough for your needs. You’ve done your research and have heard about dry ice blasting, but how will you know if it’s the best cleaning method for your facility?

How It Works
Our team uses rice sized pellets of dry ice at temperatures near -109 degrees Fahrenheit, or -78.5 degrees Celsius. These particles are softer than sand meaning they don’t damage the surface they’re cleaning. It’s such a gentle method it can be used to clean the dust off of books!
The dry ice explodes at a high velocity against the material needing to be removed. It shrinks and loosens up the material for easy removal. Ice penetrates the surface, warms – and then converts back to carbon dioxide gas. The loose material is disposed afterwards simply by vacuuming – leaving no additional waste other than the material removed from your surfaces.
