Dry Ice Blast Cleaning and Food & Beverage
Keeping food processing surfaces clean is a main concern within the Food & Beverage industry. Removing leftover food, grease, grime, carbon and other residue from production equipment is critical for preventing bacteria growth and ensuring safe, high quality food products. Dry Ice Cleaning decontaminates surfaces and removes everyday residues ensuring food quality and production is not compromised.
Dry Ice cleans to a superior standard, and so is ideal for pre-audit cleaning.
Approved by the EPA and FDA, Dry Ice Blast Cleaning is a rapid, moisture free process which cleans equipment in place and reduces the need for disassembly or pre-cleaning preparation.

Dry Ice Blasting kills E Coli, Listeria & Salmonella
Polar IceTech undertook research, in partnership with CAPPA and Enterprise Ireland, to prove international claims that Dry Ice Blasting kills dangerous food bacterium E Coli, Listeria and Salmonella. The independent assessment was completed on substrates in common use within the Food & Beverage industry.
The results proved that almost 100% of all three bacterium were destroyed and, equally as important, the bacteria was not transferred onto adjacent surfaces.
Why Introduce Dry Ice Blast Cleaning?
Critical to the quality of any food produced within the Food & Beverage Industry is ensuring that the food production environment and equipment is always clean.
