In food manufacturing processes, thorough and dependable cleansing of the weigh pans used to weigh out various food products and ingredients is essential both to prevent the introduction of dust, dirt and other contaminants into the product, and to minimise the risk of unwanted ingredient transfer. Accidental transfer is particularly important when changing between different flavours for a product, and even more important when dealing with potential allergens. A pan that has been used to weigh out nuts, for example, must be cleaned scrupulously if it is subsequently to be used to weigh out ingredients for a product that will be declared as nut free.
