An automated cleaning system is essential for the seafood industry to eliminate the bacteria that causes food poisoning and to reduce product spoilage. Maintaining proper cleaning standards means a better quality product that is safer for consumers.

Seafood processors, specifically, face unique cleaning challenges because debris can be especially challenging to remove from the surfaces of handled containers. Fish scales, fat, bones, and ink residue can make their way into not easily reached crevices and can lead to pathogens and cross-contamination when not removed properly.

Our strength is our ability to assure the highest hygienic standards, even in the most demanding environments. Better Engineering machines can meet this difficult cleaning standard while saving companies money, time, and energy.

Because the salinity of saltwater can corrode metals faster, Better Engineering offers machines built with 316L stainless steel. This stainless steel option prevents metal breakdown and lengthens your machine’s life.


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

With hygienic guidelines getting more strict by the day, dedication to cleanliness standards is more important than ever.
