Below is great information about Dry Ice Blasting from http://wickensdryiceblasting.com/process/
Explanation of Dry Ice Blasting
Dry Ice or CO 2 Blasting is a relatively new cleaning process using solid CO2 pellets (known as dry ice). Dry Ice Pellets sublimate once they’ve hit the surface to be cleaned (convert directly from a solid blast pellet to a vapor) leaving a clean, dry surface with no residue.
How Does The Dry Ice Blast Cleaning Process Work?
To use dry ice, the proper dry ice blasting equipment and dry ice blasting machines must be used. The Dry Ice Blasting process uses pellets made through a process of taking Liquid Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and expanding it to produce a snow like substance, that is compressed to make hard Dry Ice Pellets.
Dry Ice Pellets are then propelled at a supersonic speed by a compressed air gun (similar to other blasting systems). Upon impact, the dry ice creates a micro-thermal shock (caused by the extreme cold temperature of -79º C) which breaks the bond between the coating and the substrate. The high pressure air stream removes the dirt from the surface, while the Dry Ice Pellets vapourize (sublimate) before your eyes.
Reason #1: Increases uptime through in-place cleaning
The process is fast, thorough, and can be performed on-line without disassembly and without need for drying time.
Reason #2: Cleans without damaging the substrate
Dry ice blasting is non-abrasive. It quickly removes most contaminates without damage to switches, panels, lines, tubes, wiring or belts.
Reason #3: Reduces or eliminates the need for hazardous solvents
Dry Ice Blasting replaces chemical or solvent based cleaning and manual scraping.
Reason #4: Quicker and more thorough than cleaning by hand
Get a more detailed and quicker clean with CO2 by getting into tight spaced areas inaccessible by hand
Reason #5: Safe around electrical components
This versatile process cleans heavy industrial build up without damage to sensitive areas like electrical components, switches, wiring, photo electric sensors, etc
The Dry Ice Blasting process is superior to blasting with sand, glass beads and other types of cleaning methods for numerous reasons. As an Eco-friendly cleaning alternative, the dry ice cleaning method is quickly becoming favored for environmental as well as production reasons. Due to the nature of the Dry Ice Blasting process, there is no waste to be disposed of. Tremendous performance gains of little to no production downtime, quality of the clean, no clean-up, and minimized damage to equipment make Dry Ice Blasting a cost-effective cleaning option.

Waste for Disposal

You don’t want to serve draft beer thru dirty lines to your customers and your customer certainly don’t want to drink their draft beer that is poured thru dirty lines. You would be amazed what a thorough cleaning of your draft beer lines every month on average would do. I know, I’ve seen the results.
Why clean your draft beer lines?
- Bacteria, yeast, mold and beer stone will build up and quickly degrade the quality of the draft beer.
- Having proteins, yeast and mold in beer lines can negatively influence beer flavor.
- Beer stone will build up and eventually flake off on the inside of the beer tubing.
- Bacteria can result in serving cloudy off tasting beer.
- Bacteria can also lead to your beer smelling like rotten eggs.
