IWM LAUNCHES NEW BOOT WASHERS AT Pro2Pac
Industrial Washing Machines Limited
Pro2Pac – The Food and Drink Processing and Packaging Event
18-20 March 2019
At this year’s Pro2Pac show, Industrial Washing Machines Limited (IWM) is launching a new and comprehensive range of boot washers and introducing its latest CW13 EX BT cabinet washer. In addition, visitors to the IWM stand will also be able to inspect a selection of other economical high-performance washing and sanitising machines from the company’s extensive range.
The new IWM boot and shoe washers that are being launched at the show are ideal for food manufacturing plants and are designed specifically to meet the stringent hygiene requirements of areas where the production and clean zones of a food manufacturing facility meet. The new wash stations range from simple manual versions to sophisticated walk-through models with multiple brushes, automatic chemical dispensing and access control options.
The single station boot sole washers in the range are available in three sizes and, because they combine semi-automated processes of mechanical debris removal and chemical disinfection of the footwear, they significantly reduce the transfer of contaminants into and out of production areas. To operate the washers, users simply place the boot onto the machine and press the conveniently positioned start button or automatically engage a sensor. This activates the rotation of the horizontal brush and spray jets. Gross debris is removed from the soles of the boot or shoe, and the chemical treatment is applied simultaneously to speed the cleaning process.
IWM also offers passage-style boot and shoe washers in simple and double versions that can be supplied in a range of sizes to suit the space available on the factory floor. When users enter the passage-style washers, a photocell activates the rotation of horizontal/vertical brushes and turns on the spray jets. Debris is removed from the soles of the footwear, while three separate brushes mechanically clean and wash the heels and upper sides.
Featuring solid construction and user-friendly operation, the new CW13 EX BT general-purpose cabinet washer that IWM is introducing at Pro2Pac is ideally suited for efficient batch washing of a wide range of items, including trays, machine components, change parts, weigh pans, buckets and utensils using only seven litres of water per cycle after initial fill. This new cabinet washer has been designed with the highest standards of hygiene in mind. It has an internal self-cleaning function and its interior is completely rounded, with no right angles.
The machine is supplied with standard reinforced pull-out washing trays measuring 1320 mm x 700 mm and can accommodate items up to 820 mm high. For convenient handling of heavier items, such as machine parts, smaller trays are optionally available.
At Pro2Pac, IWM’s experts will be available throughout the show to provide visitors with advice and guidance on the best washing and sanitising solutions for their own specific requirements.
