Recently Cleaning Twente acquired a new food wash bay from Gröninger Cleaning Systems. This new wash bay offers an unique service.It is the first food bay in the world with a working pressure of 200 bar.

This particular desire came from the owner Evert Sanderman who said that there was a requirement for Cleaning Twente to clean on a daily basis, many tankers with chocolate and cocoa mass. With the new high pressure food bay these stubborn
product residues can be removed faster than with the previous 100 bar installation.

In combination with steam and the proper selection of cleaning chemicals the cleaning can be carried out according to the most stringent requirements. After cleaning the food tank a disinfection step can be added to the cleaning program if specified by customer requirements. The food bay itself now is EFTCO Food
and Cargill certified The new 200 bar pressure system was manufactured in a
modified 20ft container. As a result the commissioning on site was completed very quickly. This was obviously very important, as the system down-time had to be kept to a minimum.
