Cleaning process equipment with water and chemicals can be time consuming and a potential risk for both the operator and the company. The operator because of the exposure to harmful chemicals and the company because water can be trapped and create an environment for the growth of bacteria or even destroying components and equipment causing expensive production stops.
Dry ice is in principle recycled CO2 (Carbon dioxide) and has a widespread use in the food industry. Either for cooling (meat etc.) or for producing the bubbles in Soda water and beer.
INTELblast is offering dry ice blasting technologies for both industrial cleaning where a machine that can operate 24/7/365 is needed and smaller machines that only use a minimum of compressed air and which is small enough to easily store.
The solution for many food processing companies is the IBLmini. No need for a large compressor as it easily can work with the compressed air which is found in many factories. The consumption of dry ice is exceptionally low (average only 15-20 kg/hour), which makes the dry ice blasting affordable.
The IBLmini is often used in connection with the normally scheduled cleaning. Deposits that are removed from equipment will fall to the floor and removed with the general sweeping or washing of the floor
