This project involves industrial level cleaning of sensitive equipment and production lines in a bakery out of New York City. Bakery management was thrilled to learn that The EPA recommends dry ice blasting as an alternative to many types of solvent-based cleaning in food processing industry. Cryotech experts have managed to clean the entire production lines without disrupting the food production process.

Dry ice blasting is preferred cleaning choice in food processing equipment and the Food Standards Agency documented the process to effectively decontaminate surfaces of Salmonella enteritidis, E. coli, and Listeria monocytogenes such that these microorganisms are not detectable using conventional microbiological methods.It may also be used to clean some equipment without disassembly and without producing fire or electrical hazards. The EPA recommends dry ice blasting as an alternative to many types of solvent-based cleaning.

The cleaning process is also used in other manufacturing settings, such as cleaning production equipment on automated weld lines, leaning composite tooling, cleaning industrial printing presses, cleaning molds and equipment used in foundries,and to clean equipment and tooling in onshore and offshore environments in the oil and gas industry.
