Tote cleaning solution

16 September 2019

A provider of fresh prepared food needed a fast and effective solution for cleaning and sanitizing its 200l tote Eurobins, as well as small and large Tonelli mixing bowls. 

The company needed a solution that would ensure superior washing of the whole of the bins (including the wheels), every time. The company also wanted to maintain and potentially improve its high standards of hygiene without incurring excessively high costs for energy and detergents.

It contacted Industrial Washing Machines Limited (IWM) for a solution, and the company suggested a version of the new EC20-30 single-stage cabinet-type bin washer. This  machine, which is the latest addition to the EC20 range, is said to offer versatility. 

It is compatible with Eurobins as well as Vemag skips and buggies, and it accommodates 200l and 300l bins without the need for operator adjustments. What’s more, the machine can also accommodate the small and large Tonelli mixing bowls that are widely used in food preparation processes.
To deliver its cleaning performance, the EC20-30 fully inverts the bin or bowl and washes the inside with a high velocity rotating spray manifold, while the outside is washed simultaneously with a full surround jetting system. The 15 kW pump fitted to the machine ensures that the washing actions are both vigorous and thorough.
The machine was considered the best solution for this application because its flexible control system provides a high level of automation yet allows the wash cycle to be optimally matched to the user’s requirements. Running costs and environmental impact are minimised by re-circulating the wash water from a heated tank via an efficient rotary filtration system that reduces the need for water changes. This also reduces the cycle time allowing the machine to wash up to 20 items per hour. As standard, the machines are configured for a cold rinse, using a solenoid-controlled supply of fresh water from the mains.
