A crate washer is an industrial washing system that can effectively remove stains on a crate’s surface to achieve better cleaning results. Many factories, facilities and farms need to use crates to store or transport their products – leaving them stained and unwashed is a health hazard. To ensure your facility’s products are hygienic, uncontaminated and in accordance with Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) guidelines, investing in an industrial crate washer machine is a must. But that’s not the only way a crate washing system can improve your facility. This article will look at a few ways an industrial crate washer can take your facility’s efficiency to the next level.
Another way an industrial crate washer can increase efficiency throughout an operation is by optionally adding insulated exterior walls. While not a standard feature, insulated exterior walls are incredibly beneficial in the long run. With insulated walls, heat won’t be able to escape as easily during the crate washing process, providing a reasonable reduction in energy losses. Additionally, this feature allows for even more savings on energy costs.
During the crate washing process, crates are transported using a chain conveyor throughout the industrial washing system. Another optional component you can add to increase facility efficiency is a frequency regulator, which allows operations to adjust the speed by which the conveyor moves. How can this increase efficiency? It’s simple. When crates are slightly soiled, the operator can increase the speed, so less energy and water are needed for each crate. When an operator needs the maximum amount of cleaning power, the conveyor can be slowed down.
One of the most essential aspects of crate washing is hygiene. As mentioned, the entire reason for washing crates is to ensure your facility’s products are hygienic. However, cleaning crates by hand is far from the most hygienic method. An industrial crate washing system comes standard with the most hygienic design possible to ensure crates, operators, and the machine itself are always free from cross-contamination.
Manufactured with hygienic stainless steel and a sloping design so that no water remains, facilities can clean industrial washing systems quickly and efficiently. Less water, energy and sanitation cleaning agent are needed to achieve the same results as hand washing crates, increasing efficiency and saving countless dollars on cleaning costs.
