Crate Washing Delivered on Location – a Cost Effective Solution
Compact, efficient and easy to use, the new mobile crate washers from Industrial Washing Machines Limited (IWM) offer a complete and cost-effective solution to the problem of providing automated washing facilities for trays and crates in locations where these facilities are needed only intermittently or for relatively short periods.
Typical applications include washing field crates on farms during the harvest season, providing additional washing capacity in food manufacturing plants to cope with peaks in demand, and the provision of temporary washing facilities in plants where the main facility is being upgraded or replaced. The mobile washers would make an ideal piece of equipment for contract hire companies to lease out, companies or operators with multiple sites that may require temporary washing facilities or agricultural syndicates.
Immediate despatch to almost any location
IWM’s mobile crate washers are available in two versions: trailer mounted and palletised. The trailer-mounted versions can be easily towed by a car, van or tractor, and are also readily manoeuvrable by hand. The palletised versions are suitable for immediate despatch by courier to almost any location in the UK or overseas.
Effective Crusader washing technology
Both versions of the machine are based on IWM’s proven and effective Crusader washing technology, which is optimised to ensure thorough and dependable cleaning of even heavily soiled crates and trays.
Efficient and easy to clean filter system
The machines wash by sustained jetting with hot water and detergent, with maximum economy being achieved by recirculating the wash water and detergent via an efficient but easy to clean filter system. A fresh water rinse is used, with rinse water recovered to the wash tank to reduce water usage from the mains.
Ease of use and ease of maintenance in mind
Like all IWM machines, the new mobile crate washers have been designed with ease of use and ease of maintenance in mind. The washing cycle is fully automated, and an intuitive control panel provides access to all key operating parameters. All user-serviceable components, such as filters, are readily accessible, and care has been taken to eliminate dirt traps, which means the machines are fast and easy to clean.
Suitable use for indoors and outdoors
IWM’s new mobile crate washing systems have an IP66 ingress protection rating and are, therefore, equally suitable for use indoors and outdoors. Once in position on site, they are ready for use in minutes, requiring only connections to a suitable electricity supply and a source of mains water, plus provision for drainage of wastewater.
