Cleaning White Papers & Articles

  1. Principles Of Hygienic Design In The Dairy Industry

    The Dairy industry has some of the harshest operating conditions and most demanding processes in food manufacturing and processing.

  2. Principles Of Hygienic Design Food Production In Sanitary Environments

    To ensure safe food the equipment on which food processing and handling operations are conducted must be designed and constructed with sanitary design principles in mind.

  3. Handling Combustible Dusts

    Many in the manufacturing industry are not knowledgeable about combustible dusts and the potential impact of those dusts on their business.

  4. Achieving Food Sterility With Steam Infusion UHT Treatment

    UHT, or Ultra-High Temperature, treatment uses high temperature for a short time to kill micro-organisms in a food or beverage product. It is widely used in the dairy industry where products can easily lose nutritional value, flavor, and appearance as micro-organisms multiply. These organisms thrive at certain temperatures, but if they are not present in a product, it can be stored for many months without the need for refrigeration. This state is known as “commercial sterility.”

  5. Hygienic Automation Technology = Food Safety

    Protecting the consumer and the manufacturer's brand are the key aspects of hygienic and efficient automation in food production. The aims are high productivity and perfect tasting food.

  6. Feature Article: A Guide To Safe And Effective Tank Cleaning

    The primary objective of any tank cleaning application is to clean, maintain, and sanitize equipment at appropriate levels to prevent malfunctions or contamination that would alter the safety, identity, strength, quality or purity of the finished product.

  7. White Paper: Cleaning Study Of A 155 CF APE Ribbon Blender Dry Spice Cleaning
    The cleaning study, performed on April 2010, clearly showed that a robust and repeatable automatic cleaning of the Blender (including the ribbons, blades, shaft areas, discharge valve, and the blender sides) can be achieved with the use of a standard MORK CIP unit married with the appropriate spray devices.

  8. How Can A Vacuum Affect Your Reputation?

    Industrial vacuums not only protect food products from harmful bacteria and contaminants, they also elevate your plant to the next level of cleanliness so products are safe and your brand name shines.

  9. Minimizing Surface Residues With Aqueous Cleaning

    The benefits of employing aqueous cleaning in pharmaceutical manufacturing are numerous. Virtually any pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment from tablet press to a stainless steel mixing tank can achieve their defined critically clean criteria using aqueous cleaning. Typically aqueous cleaners are formulated to ensure maximal cleaning performance by using key ingredients such as surface active agents (surfactants) that are excellent wetting agents that allow the cleaning solution to penetrate into crevices while getting under soils to allow for removal. Often very dilute solutions of aqueous cleaner effectively removes even worst case substances off a variety of hard surfaces including stainless steel, glass, plastic, or porcelain.

  10. Combustible Dust And Recovery Guidelines For Grains

    The potential for explosions to occur from dust collections made of flour, sugar, cinnamon or grain particles, for example, poses a significant risk to employee safety, facility maintenance and food purity. Traditional plant maintenance methods like sweeping and blowing down with compressed air only make the situation worse by spreading the explosive dust around and making it airborne. This actually increases your chances of a combustible dust explosion.
