Food manufacturer seeks solution for cleaning batch freezing tanks

A food manufacturer who works with batch freezing tanks was looking for an easier and more efficient cleaning system. With two areas to clean — the tank itself and the filling point at the bottom of the tank — the manufacturer was looking for a way to simultaneously clean both areas. As a food manufacturer, any new cleaning solution needed to achieve 3-A certification.

An innovative, custom-designed solution was found using two PNR Italia washing heads and lance with a single water supply.

The cleaning process now occurs in two stages. Stage one uses a combination of water and detergent while stage two is a rinsing cycle using water only.

How it works

The two washing heads have been mounted onto a lance to create a single-feed washing device. One washing head is fixed and designed to clean the body of the tank. The second washing head rotates, releasing jets of water at the tank’s filling point for an aggressive clean.

The rotating washing head is manufactured from stainless steel and mounted on two rows of ball-bearings. This makes operation possible in any position.

In addition, the entire cleaning lance and two washing heads have been carefully machined, deburred, cleaned and polished to a precisely defined smoothness to avoid contamination from bacterial growth.

Now the food manufacturer has a robust and portable solution for cleaning all of its freezing tanks to the required food manufacturing standards.

This is just one of many examples where the team at Tecpro Australia has assisted users with tailored solutions designed to streamline their operations.
