It allows kit to be cleaned while still in operation, minimising downtime and maximising machine use, said Polar Intelligent Cleaning Solutions.
The Rutland firm said its technology could be tailored to suit individual needs. Dry ice – or cryogenic cleaning – is not often used in the UK, said the firm.
Director Richard Wildsmith said it cut cleaning time by around 90% on average against traditional methods like steam and jet cleaning or solvents.
"The process is non-toxic, non-conductive and non-abrasive," he said of the technology aimed at fresh-food companies suffering prolonged downtime, costly wear and tear to machinery, labour-intensive cleaning regimes, high costs for secondary-waste disposal or ineffective cleaning performance.
"Firms need to re-evaluate their cleaning to improve productivity, cut costs, reduce machine downtime and maximise the life of their equipment."
The system uses compressed air to fire small pellets of dry ice at machine surfaces. The dry process works without chemicals, solvents and water.
"This is what makes the technology ideal for cleaning electrical equipment, machinery and other water- or moisture-sensitive applications," said Woldsmith.
The kit was recently used by a fruit packer to clean a hard-to-reach solenoid pack covered in netting debris, dirt and oil. It was ready to use within an hour, he said.
