Dry Ice Blasting in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Meeting strict industry requirements and delicate components can make cleaning within the Pharmaceutical industry a difficult, costly and time consuming process. Polar IceTech Ltd have been working with Irish pharmaceutical companies for almost a decade helping them reach these strict requirements, reduce costs and maximise production time by delivering eco-friendly cryogenic Dry Ice Blasting cleaning solutions.

Unlike sandblasting, soda blasting or water blasting, Dry Ice Blasting is as a non-abrasive cleaning method which effectively removes contaminants while ensuring equipment is not damaged further helping to extend the life of molds and other tools.

Dry Ice Blasting is non-toxic and is approved by the EPA, FDA, and USDA as an acceptable cleaning material. It is cleanroom compatible and ideal for cleaning difficult to reach areas within machinery.
