Hydroponic and Agriculture Sanitizing Systems

Hydroponic & Vertical Farming

Better Engineering is an industry leader in manufacturing agriculture, hydroponic and vertical farming washing & sanitization systems, and tray washing equipment used in agriculture and other related industries. BE has worked beside industry leaders for over 60 years to produce automated cleaning systems that promote sustainability, meet stringent FDA standards, and save companies money.

Your Growth Matters.

Hydroponic farmers’ needs differ vastly from traditional farmers, and their hygienic needs vary greatly. Because hydroponic plants are grown without exposure to outdoor hazards, there is no need to wash the actual produce. But hydroponic farming poses unique challenges, explicitly managing debris in containers, trays, and vertical grow towers. Our vertical farming washing & sanitization systems can filter large amounts of organic solid waste from the wash water to prevent clogging of filtration and nozzles. Given the rate of substantial waste accumulation for this application, BE’s systems convey solid waste to a collection container for disposal.

Foodborne illnesses in the farming and agriculture industry can halt all operations; if not cleaned properly, fungi from bins can infect other plants in the same container causing an outbreak and loss of revenue. BE provides superior vertical farming washing & sanitization systems washers for containers, IBCs, Macro Bins, totes, and other elements hiding bacteria, debris, and soil, breeding potentially harmful contaminants that taint the product. Produce container washers prevent these harmful contaminants from spreading out of containers, Macro Bins, reusable produce bins, buckets, totes, and other containers. 

Cleaning these items manually consumes too much water, chemistry, and labor. This process is easily automated and addressed with cleaning systems. Our cleaning systems and prioritization of food safety management exponentially lower the risk of foodborne illnesses and increase productivity and sustainability.


Keep peace of mind knowing that your items are clean and sanitized.

Sanitization in hydroponic and vertical farming is essential to keep consumers from becoming ill and kill microbial hazards, such as bacteria or fungi. As such, grow trays, and vertical farming washing & sanitization systems, are needed to ensure microbes, algae, leaves, stems, grow media, and root mass are removed.

Better Engineering's sanitary line of stainless steel cleaning systems are built to the highest hygienic standards with industry-leading capabilities.

BE vertical farming washing & sanitization systems comply with and exceed all regulatory food safety standards such as FSMAHACCP, and GMP  guidelines which help ensure your farming equipment and products are sanitized. All produce container washers feature a self-cleaning work tank that can fill and empty with each stage and an “open architecture” for complete access (no hidden areas). They can incorporate features such as automated bin flipping, multi-lane and adjustable lane options to accommodate various part sizes, and choice of heating – steam, gas, or electric. Furthermore, BE sanitizing produce container washers are cost-effective and practical and cater to the supply chain by offering solutions for growers, suppliers, shippers, processors, and grocers.


Better Engineering’s vertical farming washing & sanitization systems are built to last. Our machines offer the highest quality levels with trackable and repeatable results that don’t change over time. Our research lab can demonstrate the full potential of our washing and sanitizing systems using your containers. Mail us the items you would like cleaned, and we will test them to find the best machine recommendation for you. We guarantee that we’ll find a solution that meets all of your needs– it’s part of our commitment to customer satisfaction.
