Sanitization Washers

Cleaning & sanitizing systems built specifically for food and pharmaceutical industries.

Systems that will help you meet industry cleaning regulations

Clean and sanitary equipment is imperative in the food and pharmaceutical industries to prevent cross-contamination and reduce the growth of viruses, fungi, and harmful bacteria. These industries have the strictest cleaning regulations set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure consumer safety and are subject to cleaning validation.

Equipment must be designed and constructed in such a manner to meet specific sanitary design principles. Better Engineering specializes in cleaning and sanitizing systems built following these principles for hygienic applications.

BE’s line of sanitary washers includes conveyor washing systems, rack washers, large container/vat washers, and turntable-style washers. Systems offer wash, rinse, sanitize, and dry modules and are designed to clean high volumes of equipment, utensils, and components on a 24-7 basis. This line of machinery follows hygienic design principles referenced in 3-A General Requirements to deliver optimal functionality in a food processing or biomedical environment. 

Our sanitary washers feature stainless steel construction, sanitary spray and dry manifolds, sloped floors, continuous welding (TIG), “open” architecture for maximum access, rounded corners, and system filtration. These machines meet all regulatory food and safety standards set by FSMA, HACCP, and GMP, providing verifiable and repeatable results.

Applications for these washers include cleaning and sanitizing:

BETTER CLEANING & SANITIZATION!

The Cyberjet “SAN” line embodies the most advanced concepts in aqueous conveyor washing technology and is designed specifically for food and pharmaceutical applications. All systems generally conform to 3-A machine standards and offer a full range of wash, rinse, dry, and sanitizing options.

The C-24-SAN, C-36-SAN and C-48-SAN model lines consist of six principal modules and numerous options/accessories, which are designed around a 24″ wide conveyor (parallel chain or belt conveyors). There are three spray modules, and three drying module from which to choose. Typically, systems will have a least two modules for a wash/rinse sequence and often have four or more modules for sequences such as wash, rinse/sanitize, fresh rinse, and dry. The customer can choose any number of modules and put them in virtually any sequence.

The Cyberjet “SAN” line is built to the following high standards: stainless steel, modular construction, generally designed and built to 3A standards, powered vertical access doors allow complete access to spray and dry chambers, sanitary pumps with 3-A conformance, all spray chamber and tank floors are sloped to virtually eliminate standing water, extra protection against solution crossover, and more.

Sanitary Rack Washers

Cleaning & Sanitizing Systems to Prevent Cross-Contamination.

SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR FOOD & PHARMA INDUSTRIES.

Better Engineering’s rack washers are batch-operation machines built to the highest hygienic standards with industry-leading capabilities.

These units are generally in compliance with 3-A general guidelines for sanitary designs and are purpose-built for cleaning and sanitizing trays and pans used in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Standard racks & cabinets are sized for a 36-large sheet pan per batch cleaning cycle. They are installed above-ground with minimal site preparation. 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.

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 for conservation of detergent, heat and water while retaining cleanliness in the working tank.

V-1000 Series Vat Washers

Cleaning Containers of Various Sizes.

SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR FOOD & PHARMA INDUSTRIES.

Better Engineering’s “V” Series are batch-operation machines built to the highest hygienic standards with industry-leading capabilities. The series generally complies with 3-A general guidelines for sanitary design; these washers are purpose-built for automated cleaning and (optional) sanitizing of trays and pans used in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Units are designed to accommodate containers of various sizes, as large as 30″ L x 30″ W x 38″ H. They are installed above-ground with minimal site preparation. The drawbridge-style door mechanism allows containers to be rolled onto the door when lowered by operator. Detergent wash, optional heated rinse and optional sanitizing rinse are sprayed through v-jet nozzles positioned on rotating manifolds (with the option to upgrade to linear-sweeping manifolds) assuring consistent, high-impingement full coverage cleaning to remove stubborn soils and contaminants. Additionally, the system features an automatic self-cleaning sequence. V-1000 washers can be upsized to accommodate larger containers, as well.

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 for conservation of detergent, heat and water while retaining cleanliness in the working tank.

Turntable Washers

Cleaning & Sanitizing Systems to Prevent Cross-Contamination.

SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR FOOD & PHARMA INDUSTRIES.

Better Engineering’s sanitary turntable washers are batch-operation machines built to the highest hygienic standards with industry-leading capabilities.

These units are generally in compliance with 3-A general guidelines for sanitary designs and are purpose-built for cleaning and sanitizing trays and pans used in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Standard units are equipped with a 40″ diameter turntable and 40″ inside vertical clearance (IVC). They are installed above-ground with minimal site preparation. The roll-in door exposes a portion of turntable for ergonomic loading of larger volume containers by the operator.

Two styles of cabinet doors available: roll-in door or vertical lift door:

  1. Roll-in door: the door rolls into the cleaning chamber thereby minimizing the overall footprint
  2. Vertical lift door: two (2) pneumatic cylinders actuate the door vertically upwards to provide full access to turntable and wash chamber clean-out

Standard cycles are non-recirculated to reduce cross-contamination and uphold cleaning efficacy. Optional holding tanks can allow recirculation for the conservation of detergent, heat, and water while retaining cleanliness in the working tank. Additionally, the system features an automatic self-cleaning sequence.
