Using IWM Equipment Vs Manual Cleaning
Manual cleaning is time consuming and requires a lot of scrubbing/scouring and can also be inconsistent. The mechanics of IWM machinery work by utilising the appropriate flow motion (velocity), temperature, detergents and contact times. The pumps are designed to suit the relevant capacity to obtain a turbulent effect ensuring effective cleaning on the surface of containers/items being washed. Tank cleaning requires large volumes of detergent, which must be circulated rapidly and balanced with the right chemicals and flow. IWM design team ensures a right fit machine to suit the customer’s needs.
The dirt that is found on the surfaces of dairy equipment needs to be removed. It consists of deposits stuck to a surface and its composition, in this particular case, is based on milk components that are utilised by bacteria ‘hidden’ in the dirt. IWM systems adapted to achieve good cleaning and sanitation results specific machinery covers dairy activities such as cleaning containers/storage for pasteurised milk products, whey processing, ice cream, butter and dairy spreads, fermented milk products, long life milk products to name a few. Whatever your need IWM will have a washing machine to suit.
Environmentally Friendly Contributions
Limiting waste, energy efficiency and environmental impact have all contributed to significant changes in the use of reusable containers and packaging.
As in the food industry in general the dairy industry has to follow the process to obtain a bacterially and physically clean to a high standard. This is undertaken by:-
- Loosening of product residues by scraping, drainage and high pressure jetting system
- Pre-rinsing with water to remove loose dirt / bulk debris to prevent further detergent wash and rinse systems from being unnecessarily contaminated
- Cleaning with appropriate chemicals/detergent
- Rinsing with clean water
- Disinfection by heating or with chemical agents (optional); if this step is included, the cycle ends with a final rinse, if the water quality is good.
