As a washing equipment manufacturer, IWM (Industrial Washing Machines Ltd) is always at the forefront of the industry. We work alongside companies that demand the most efficient and cost-effective washing and sanitising solutions. These sectors include the food, automotive, engineering components, pharmaceutical industries and cosmetics industries.
In fact, we regularly supply washing equipment to customers that require high care washing systems. As a result, helping them to consistently satisfy even the most challenging quality and reliability standards.
Industrial Washing Equipment in the Food Sector
When it comes to washing equipment, we are experts in meeting industrial cleaning requirements.
High-temperature rinse systems, sanitising sections, and effective allergen control technology, are just some of the key features of IWM machines.
Ensuring consistent high temperatures and/or precise chemical concentrations throughout the washing cycle is particularly important for the food sector. This is because you can only destroy harmful pathogens at 82+ degrees Celsius.
Health and Safety
What’s more, to remove allergens from cooking utensils, the temperature and washing liquid need to be accurately controlled.
For instance, if a food production environment where wheat is present in some products is also used to process gluten-free food, the utensils used need to be thoroughly cleaned after each batch to ensure that no traces of gluten, which is a common allergen, remain.
This is essential for the health and safety of end customers and also from a compliance perspective. And with stringent regulations such as Natasha’s Law coming into force, food producers will need to take even greater care over allergen handling.
Reliable Hygiene Solutions
For all applications, especially those in the food and beverage sector, we supply machines that are efficient, reliable and durable.
Customising Your Machine
You can individually customise the machines to wash items to agreed specifications. Therefore, your machines will always be able to meet quality assurance and compliance needs.
Industrial Machines Lasting Decades
With their unique fully stainless-steel construction, IWM products provide years or even decades of service. This is providing you properly maintain and care for your machine and adopt a regular cleaning schedule.
When a company installs a new machine, IWM puts it through a stringent FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) procedure. This is a process that evaluates the equipment during and after assembly. It verifies that it is built and operating in accordance with design specifications. The FAT procedure ensures that the components and controls are working properly are that all of the facilities provided by the machine are fully functional from day one.
To complement and augment the FAT procedure, IWM now offers temperature validation and certification, as well as very precise chemical concentration and dosing assessments. Since these operational aspects need to be regularly checked and documented to ensure that the machine user is consistently achieving critical control points, this service is usually offered as part of a regular service agreement. This has the added benefit of ensuring that the machine continues to operate efficiently and effectively for many years to come. Validation and certification services are, however, available separately if required.
Bespoke Hygiene Systems
As standard, IWM provides comprehensive operation and maintenance manuals but the company can also supply an extensive range of additional documentation tailored, if required, to meet the needs of specific industry sectors. This can, for example, include :
- training certificates,
- detailed service reports,
- material and component documentation,
- specialised health and safety information.
We build our washing and sanitising machines to the highest standards. We base this them on customer-led specifications and stringent acceptance criteria. This may seem like a daunting task. However, the documentation and certification side of the business is fast becoming as important as the machinery itself!
