Cleaning and sanitizing processes are important in food safety. Damage to a brand’s reputation and the potential legal fallout demand strict adherence to good manufacturing practices. For proper food safety, any surface or material that comes into contact with food and foodstuff must be properly cleaned and sanitized per recommended procedures. It is also critical that non-production equipment such as overhead structures, shields, walls, ceilings, refrigeration units and HVAC systems are routinely cleaned and sanitized.
High-pressure washing equipment significantly reduces labor while cleaning more effectively compared to low-pressure alternatives. High-pressure washdown systems also reduce water consumption and the time required for proper cleaning. Equipment dependability is an important application factor; that is why Cat Pumps is viewed worldwide as the high-pressure pump of choice in food processing cleaning and washdown.
High-pressure central cleaning systems allow a central pump to run multiple guns in various locations in the food processing plant. The central unit needs to produce enough flow to cover peak demand. To improve system efficiency, Cat Pumps offers factory-programmed Variable Frequency Drives (VFD). A VFD receives feedback from sensors placed in the system that automatically adjusts the system flow based on demand. When no flow is required the system shut-down, saving the cost of wasted electrical power. Energy savings are significant, often realizing an economic payback for the VFD in fewer than 12 months.
With field-proven dependability in applications worldwide, Cat Pumps provides the most dependable high-pressure pumps and systems for central cleaning washdown systems.
