For fruit and vegetable processing, workers often use plastic crates or trays to transport fruit and vegetables from the farm to the cold store or to the next processing area. Stains on crates are mainly dirt, dust and sugar, and in order to ensure the hygiene of the food, workers need to clean and sterilize the crates regularly.
Manual washing of the crate is a traditional method where workers clean the crate using a high-pressure water jet or a brush, but this method is only suitable for plants that clean a small number of crates per day.
In addition, it's not easy to rinse off the detergent or disinfectant from the surface of the crate since they need to smear it to ensure that the total number of colonies on the surface is food-safe. Without a doubt, manual washing would be challenging to achieve this hygiene standard.
So it is better to use a crate washer to clean them. The crate washer is divided into four sections: pre-wash zone, main wash zone, rinse zone and dry zone. If the number of crates to be cleaned in your plant is small or only a few stains on the crate's surface, a washer with pre-wash and main wash is all you need.
Now the negative impact of Covid-19 on global business is not only due to supply chain shortages but also to increased production costs and labor shortages. In these challenging times, companies need to make savings wherever possible. The Crate washer usually requires two employees to operate, but some companies prefer to use one worker to do the work, so we designed a washer with a U-shaped conveyor belt.
