Potato processing hygiene with cleanable Dolav plastic pallet boxes

15 October 2015

Potato processing hygiene is greatly helped with cleanable Dolav plastic pallet boxes. 

McCain chose the perforated 740mm tall Dolav Ace to allow air flow around the potatoes when in cold store and now also uses the solid-wall Ace. McCain’s Dolav boxes are easily kept clean to food-hygiene standards and reused in a continuous cycle from potato washing and grading plants to factory. The Dolav Ace has been confirmed by technicians at the food and drink industry scientific, technical and advisory services, Campden BRI, as having ‘hygienic design’.

New at BP2015
Seen for the first time at BP2015, is the 1250mm tall Dolav Ace. Within its 1125 litres it holds 1150Kg to a max 5000 Kg stack load. This offers food processing sites more capacity per box within the 1200 x 1000 mm pallet box footprint. The SH-1250 has the same hygiene quality, long-life durability and perforated or solid walls and base as the standard Dolav Ace. Both can be seen on Stand B22 at BP2015, Harrogate 12-13 November
Built tough and easy to clean
The Dolav Ace plastic pallet box is designed and injection moulded in one single piece, with three integral runners, to be strong and hygienic as this eliminates cavities. The Dolav is also hygienic due to the smooth, clean lines with rounded internal corners. That is essential for easy, effective and routine cleaning of equipment in direct contact with potatoes, meat, fish, fruit and vegetables and during food production.  The Dolav Ace has been abuse tested by TÜV SÜD and performed best vs. competitor boxes in the same tests.

Recycling EoL Dolavs into wheelie bins
End-of-life Dolavs can be ground up and their HDPE recycled into making wheelie bins. With Dolavs, EoL can be after 20-30 years or more. Their recycled HDPE then starts anew as wheelie bin containers to help recycle household waste for many more decades.
