Abrasive Blasting in Food Service

Soda blast food manufacturing equipment for optimum cleaning. It is CFIA and FDA approved food grade, non toxic media.

Kelso cleans food manufacturing equipment for a number of clients who require a surface that is smooth, clean and approved for food processing requirements. We often provide a blast brush for food equipment prior to shipping to the end-user.

Soda blasting is commonly used in the food processing industry as an alternative to traditional cleaning systems. Food plants have many cleaning challenges such as heavy duty processing equipment, conveyor belts, plant floors and walls. Pressure washers do not effectively clean food contact surfaces, they simply act as a high impact rinse. Most scrub brushes and cleansers only partially clean the surface of equipment and require the use of harsh (and sometimes dangerous) chemicals. Soda blasting, however, uses an FDA/USDA/CFIA and Kosher approved cleaning media (baking soda) in a high-pressure machine to thoroughly clean any surface without damaging the substrate.

Sodium bicarbonate blasting is a revolutionary concept that strips and cleans all surfaces in a fraction of the time normally required and fits the needs of any HACCP/SSOP program.
