Crate washer: with Undine® faster and better cleaning

29 June, 2019 Ton Winters

Crate washers are essential for food safety and indispensable in the food industry. You can treat a product as hygienically as possible. If you put it in a dirty crate, you still have a problem. But normal crate washers are often unable to clean crates properly. Moreover, they use an enormous amount of water and energy. In this article you will discover how you can clean crates much better and at the same time save up to 70% on your water and energy consumption.

What are crate washers?

Crate washers are machines that clean crates. Crates used in the food industry can get very dirty. Think of a crate in which chicken meat has been marinated for a week. It is of course very important that these crates are properly cleaned.

But conventional crate washers are often unable to clean crates properly. As a result, crates often have to pass through the machine several times in order to be cleaned properly. Or the crates have to be cleaned manually again. In the worst case, crates cannot be cleaned at all. In addition, traditional crate washers use an enormous amount of water and energy. A water consumption of tens of thousands of litres per hour is common. And of course all this water has to be heated as well. The Undine® technology puts an end to all these problems.

The Undine® crate washer cleans faster and better

The Undine concept is simple, the effect is enormous. Water and air are mixed under pressure in the Undine® mixing chamber. The result is an excellent cleaning method with extremely low water consumption. The Undine® technology cleans even the dirtiest crates perfectly with much less water and energy. Below you will find six of the advantages of the Undine® crate washer:

1. Extreme cleaning power

The Undine® crate washer cleans much better and faster than conventional crate washes. The radius of the Undine® is much more powerful. This is due to the Undine® technology whereby water and air are mixed under pressure in the Undine® mixing chamber.

2. Extreme high Return on Investment (ROI) 

The Undine® crate washer has an extremely high Return on Investment. In practice, the investment in Undine® pays for itself between three months and two years. This is partly due to the enormous savings on water, energy and personnel costs.
