Better Engineering’s commercial rack washers are batch-operation machines built to the highest hygienic standards with industry-leading capabilities. Designed to clean a wide variety of parts, our rack washer is highly versatile and ensures proper spray impingement for effective results. 

Our rack and cabinet washers comply with 3-A general guidelines for the highest hygienic standards, and are purpose-built for cleaning and sanitizing trays, pans, cages, scales, pails, buckets, and bowls used in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Rack WAshers for Sanitization

Standard racks & cabinets are sized for a 36-72 large sheet pan per batch cleaning cycle. Our rack washing systems can be installed above ground with minimal site preparation, or they can be installed in a pit, so the washer is floor-level. Racks can be loaded into the washer with a ramp or an optional automated lift mechanism. 

Detergent wash, optional heated rinse, and optional sanitizing rinse are sprayed through high-capacity v-jet nozzles placed on linear-sweeping (‘walking’) manifolds assuring consistent, high-impingement, full coverage cleaning to remove stubborn soils and contaminants. Additionally, the system features an automatic self-cleaning sequence to scour the tanks and cabinets in-between cycles to prevent cross-contamination.

BE the Difference

Our rack washer cabinet is hygienic by design. The cabinet floor slopes into a working tank covered by chip screens. Standard cycles are non-recirculated to reduce cross-contamination and uphold cleaning efficacy. Optional holding tanks can allow recirculation to conserve detergent, heat, and water while retaining cleanliness in the working tank.
