Sanitizing food preparation surfaces after cleaning them is Food Safety 101, right?


The extra sanitizing step usually involves mixing a chemical solution at the correct dilution rate, applying the sanitizing solution to the cleaned surfaces via a sprayer or foamer, ensuring the sanitizer stays wet on the target surface for the correct dwell time, rinsing the surface thoroughly (although there are non-rinse sanitizers available for the food industry these days,) and finally waiting for the surface to dry again.

What effect would it have on your bottom line if your cleaning process cleaned AND sanitized in one pass?!


Dry Ice Blasting sanitizes as it cleans


Dry Ice Pellets are extremely cold, which cleans, disinfects, sanitises and decontaminates in one pass.


Because Dry Ice is super cold, (-79˚C,) Dry Ice Blasting instantly kills and removes bacteria (such as Salmonella, E-Coli, Listeria,) from the surface of an object, disinfecting, sanitising and decontaminating all in one pass. And, because the cleaning process is totally dry, you are not introducing moisture which promotes bacteria growth.

The Cold Jet system has been shown to be effective in cleaning and disinfecting various food grade surfaces. It has a distinct advantage over conventional cleaning and disinfection techniques in that there are no chemical residues left behind after treatment, and no chemical wastes to treat and dispose of. As it stands, the Cold Jet system could be used now to disinfect food processing operations, preferably after an initial removal of gross debris. 

If you are looking to optimize a cleaning process at your food production plant, Dry Ice Blasting as a cleaning and sanitizing method is a great place to start.
