Wine and Beverage Processing

Dry Ice Blasting of Atlanta's dry ice cleaning services are ideal for cleaning brewing equipment in the beverage processing industry. Our wine barrel cleaning solutions effectively clean presses, press plates and augers of crystals, salts and build-up without damage to the tolerances of machine parts or their integrity.

Dry ice blasting propels solid dry ice pellets at supersonic speeds to clean surfaces. These CO2 pellets disappear upon impact, lifting the contaminant from the surface without scratching, damaging or etching equipment - making this solution perfect for cleaning brewing equipment. Traditional wine barrel cleaning methods, such as scraping and chiseling to remove stubborn deposits, may leave surface imperfections in the equipment, in which bacterial matter can grow. Dry Ice Blasting of Atlanta's cleaning solutions do not leave imperfections susceptible to bacterial matter.

The Benefits of Wine Barrel Cleaning with Dry Ice Blasting

Unlike traditional wine barrel cleaning methods, dry ice blasting does not use water, saving on drying time and eliminating bacteria build-up. Most wineries use some form of hot water rinsing when cleaning brewing equipment. In these methods, a stream of hot, pressurized water is shot through the bung hole. This process eliminates tartrates and lees, but can leave behind bacteria hidden deep in the wood. Additionally, it uses a massive amount of water - up to 25 gallons per barrel each time the barrel is washed out.

Dry ice blasting, approved by the FDA, EPA and USDA does not require water, and does not use other harmful chemicals or solvents, making our process 100% environmentally-friendly when cleaning brewing equipment.

Additional benefits of our wine barrel cleaning solutions include:

  • No secondary waste or run-off
  • Eliminates the need to re-toast barrels
  • Colorless, tasteless, odorless gas, which leaves no residue that could result in substandard tastes
