The company that contacted us designs and manufactures machinery for the food industry on commission and was designing a washing tunnel for plastic milk drums.
Once emptied, the bins must be washed internally with water, then with a cleaning product, and finally rinsed with water.
The system designed by the customer included a chain that transported the drums upside down to each of the three washing stations. As the customer needed to wash 600 bins daily, exceeding 30 seconds per stop at each treatment station was impossible.
The drums need a high-impact cleaning for the inside to ensure sanitation before being reused; the outside of the bins must be cleaned with water only.
PNR Italia supported the customer in choosing the washing system for the three stations.
