Well-functioning drag-through cooling, but a higher germ count… Now what?

18 December, 2019 Ton Winters

You do everything you can to clean your product as well as possible. After each treatment (the picker, the picker, etc.), you clean your product. However, at the prescribed measurement/control point, the bacterial count is still too high. Very frustrating, and it can cause problems with inspection and with the shelf life of your product. Now what? Find out how you can solve these problems immediately.

Drag through cooling: possible cause of your problem?

The increased total germ count may have something to do with your drag through cooling. It may cool your product well, but the total germ count on your product can increase significantly because of it. How is that possible? This has to do with the large quantities of products that are transported through the cooling system. Bacteria may not multiply, but they keep adding up. Research showed that already after one hour of production, the quality of the cooling water was worse than the sampling on neck skins at the end of the ready-for-use department.

Cleaning after the drag through cooling is the solution!

With Undine® you can clean your product one last time on the cooling shackles from the in and outside after the drag through cooling. This way, the contaminated water from the drag-through cooling is removed of your product. This ensures that your product meets all requirements and leaves the facility perfectly cleaned. You save €12.50 every hour. Depending on your production hours and days, this can be as much as € 37,500 per year. You can fill in the improvement on your shelf life yourself.

Favourable water consumption Undine®

The inside/outside bird washer with Undine® uses a maximum of 2100 litres per hour, depending on your line speed. Conventional inside/outside bird washers never achieve the same cleaning results and generally use more than 6000 litres of water. In addition, you can use the water that Undine® uses to refresh the water in the drag through cooling system. After all, this water is still way cleaner than the water in the drag through cooling.

The Undine® technology

Water and air are mixed under pressure in the Undine® mixing chambers. This results in thousands of microscopic droplets with extreme cleaning power. But that’s not all, this also saves you up to 70% on your water and energy consumption and it will greatly reduce the number of damaged products.

Other applications of the Undine®

The Undine® technology can be applied in all facets of poultry slaughterhouses. Not only can you use it to thoroughly clean your product, but also conveyor belts, shackles and crates. In short, with Undine® you can clean your poultry slaughterhouse from A to Z perfectly. Take a look, for example, at how we applied the Undine® at the poultry slaughterhouse GPS-Nunspeet. We have improved hygiene enormously and at the same time achieved water savings of 230,000 litres per day. We know which solution is suitable for you!
