Washing Systems Engineered for the Pharmaceutical Industry


Cleaning and sanitizing pharmaceutical processing equipment is challenging. It requires that facilities adhere to the strictest of cleanliness requirements to comply with government safety regulations. Facilities must clean this equipment daily to prevent contamination from active ingredients, microbial residue, and other contaminants.

Manufacturers must consider the following factors when considering a cleaning system: the equipment and surfaces cleaned, the type of contaminant present, and the choice of detergent, and the temperature used. Better Engineering is a leading manufacturer of pharmaceutical parts washers. Our systems are designed to wash, rinse/sanitize, and dry pill slats, vials, bottles, totes, trays, scoops, filling equipment, and other equipment.

Better Engineering builds its sanitary line of stainless steel cleaning systems to the highest hygienic standards with industry-leading capabilities. Available systems include batch washers, bin and vat washers, rack washers, cabinet washers, conveyor/tunnel washers, and other custom-made solutions, all tailored to the pharmaceutical industry. These highly versatile systems optimize production processes and ensure the hygienic cleaning of pharmaceutical processing equipment.

All systems feature a self-cleaning work tank that can fill and empty with each stage. They are also designed with an “open architecture” for complete access (there are no hidden areas). They can incorporate robotic integration, multi-lane and adjustable lane options to accommodate various part sizes, and choice of heating – steam, gas, or electric.


Get peace of mind in knowing that your items are clean and free from any hazards.

Automated cleaning and sanitizing systems ensure repeatability of the cleaning process, increase productivity, lower labor costs, restrict hazards, and prevent product cross-contamination between batches. In addition, they provide a more sustainable cleaning solution by offering savings on water and energy resources and increasing equipment lifespan.
