Steam cleaning in food processing

There is no need to emphasise the importance of cleanliness in food processing plants. To eliminate bacteria, viruses and Grime from surfaces and equipment, it is imperative to adopt an effective cleaning and sanitisation program. Steam Australia's steam cleaning equipment provides the necessary cleaning and sanitisation to accomplish this goal.

Traditional sanitising is normally a three stage process: first foaming detergents and other chemicals are used followed by rinsing with high pressure water before finally sanitising with the aid of chemical products. Most sanitisers are not equally effective against all types of micro-organisms. These organisms can also develop a tolerance to these sanitisers.

When using sanitizers, great care must be taken not to leave any residues on the surfaces treated, as these may contaminate the food. It is also essential to keep your facility as dry as possible since bacteria proliferate quickly in stagnant water. The low moisture content of the steam leaves little if any water moisture behind to stagnate.

High temperature can play a major role in the elimination of bacteria. The high temperature produced by the Steam Australia's equipment eliminates all kinds of pathogenic micro-organisms. Any new strains of bacteria that may appear as a result of long term exposure no longer have resistance to any type of sanitiser.

The use of saturated steam technology simplifies the sanitising process, reduces the risk of chemical contamination, and leaves the surfaces clean and dry. It is a quick, safe, economical and environmentally sound method of sanitising surfaces in the food and packaging industry.

The cleaning ability of steam is second to none. Steam will easily clean all nooks and crevices where cleaning by hand cannot reach.

Cleaning with Steam is also ideal for cleaning in food environments where water cannot be used. Vapor steam is dry, safe and will not wet the surrounding areas.
