Poultry Processing Equipment Cleaning

125837058_xlThere is one thing that all manufacturing companies have in common, and it is that the customer has no idea what ordeals you must go through as the company to make sure everything turns out alright when it reaches the end user. It doesn’t matter if it’s the food industry, the oil industry, or the electronics industry, you stand by, you wait, you watch, and you make sure that there is no harmful contamination to speak of.

One again, none of your customers notice when you actually take these precautions and make the necessary changes, but you can be rest assured that they will notice if you do NOT do them. That being said, you have a lot of work to do, and a lot of considerations to make. The first thing that you will want to think about, of course, is the type of cleaning you want to do. There are several trouble spots along the line, one of which is the slaughter room – the one room most people and customers don’t like to think about.

Welcome to the Slaughter Room

The slaughter room contains some of the nastiest things you will ever see in any factory, and it could be full of anything from blood, to feces, and all manner of other nasty things. This is the room that will contribute most to your bacterial contamination problem, but it is definitely not the only one that you will want to clean. Actually, there are several others, and with that being the case, you may need to take some drastic measures in order to get the job done. So where does it start, and where does it end?

Cleaning Up

When you are thinking of doing some cleaning, you might think it is a good idea to start by wiping things down, and that might be a good start, though ultimately futile. It would take far too long for you to effectively wipe down the entirety of your slaughter room and the rest of your factory. Additionally, you would have to have nearly all of your employees working on the project, and that simply is not feasible. So what do you do? How do you handle this exactly? First of all, you need to drop the buckets, drop the sponges, and start taking a look at pressure washers.

Pressure washers aren’t new by any means. You’ve seen then, you’ve probably had your car washed with them even if you don’t realize it. If you want to employ this method in your factory, however, you are going to need a slightly different approach. You need to look at the following features to determine what sort of pressure washer you want to start using with your business:

  • Tank Size This is something rarely taken into account, but it honestly should be. The size of the tank has a lot to do with it, as you have probably come to realize. The bigger your tank happens to be, the less time you will spend refilling it, and the more time you will be able to spend cleaning the line. Always opt for a bigger tank if you can!

  • Heating Element – One of the most important parts of the entire assembly, the heating element will ensure that the water in the tank is properly heated and can be used in the manner you wish. Keep in mind however that larger tanks do take more time to heat up, even if they are more efficient. Is the sacrifice worth it? Only you can decide.

  • Power Source As always, make sure you take a good look at the power source for the pressure washer. Many of them use gas, however the USDS prohibits the emission of harmful particles into the air which is precisely what you would be dealing with when it comes to gas emissions and fumes. That said, use electric to power your power washer and make sure you have enough power to perform the cleaning.

A scalding hot pressure wash stream will be more than enough for you to get rid of the bacteria and make your facility sparkling clean once again. It’s definite must if you want to advertise your business as clean and deliver quality products to your clients. Remember, there are many USDA guidelines in place intended to help you and preserve the health of your customers. Use one of our many power washer units to achieve it.
