Food & Beverage Industry

Dry ice is colorless, tasteless, odorless, waterless, and non-toxic and therefore never compromising taste, quality, or safety.

The Only Food-Grade Media

Food processing and packaging equipment accumulate residues such as grease, proteins, seasoning, crumbs, and other buildups over time. These deposits compromise equipment efficiency, diminish product quality, and pose risks of non-compliance with health codes.

From effectively cleaning equipment and machinery to sanitizing surfaces and removing stubborn product buildup, dry ice cleaning ensures optimal hygiene standards and compliance with food safety regulations.

These heat plates are utilized in honey manufacturing, where residue buildup can become a stubborn, burnt-on, sticky mess. Dry ice cleaning effectively removes this residue, leaving them clean and pristine.

Dry ice cleaning is the fastest and most effective method approved for use in food industry applications by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
