Maintaining proper cleanliness can be a great challenge for most businesses, but few are more hard-pressed to do this than the food industry. Food preparation equipment must be kept perfectly clean to minimize the chance of accidents happening or contamination from germs. If Calgarians are treating themselves to a tasty night out, they want to be sure that whatever’s going into their mouths was cooked and served using only clean equipment! Here are some reasons why dry ice blasting has become the preferred method of cleaning on all levels of the food industry.
Dry ice blasting cleans equipment using harmless dry ice pellets. This cleaning method is 100% approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. The pellets are non-hazardous, and can be safely used in areas where food preparation takes place. Equipment lined with grease, wax, or crumbs prevents your business from operating at peak efficiency. Dry ice blasting can help increase your equipment’s maximum working potential.
Dry ice blasting is useful for cleaning food preparation equipment of all shapes and sizes. Walls, floors, and piping are more obvious targets for dry ice blasting, but ovens and fryers are also easily cleaned through this method. Dry ice blasting is also used to clean sensitive electrical components such as wiring, panels, and motors. The small dry ice pellets are especially good at getting into tightly spaced areas like bulbous welds or crevices in conveyor lines. Dry ice blasting equipment is mobile, so there is no need to move the targeted equipment outdoors.
Dry ice blasting removes the need for the use of abrasive cleaning agents, avoids damage to equipment surfaces, and allows it to operate at its maximum efficiency. The pressurized dry ice pellets gives the targeted area a deep cleaning, hitting all the nooks and crannies that are tricky to reach by hand. It also has the added benefit of removing microorganisms that can contaminate food and cause illness. All this means food businesses can save on labour and other cleaning costs.
Although the name might be a little intimidating, dry ice blasting is actually a safe and effective method of cleaning, especially for the food industry.
