The market for nutraceutical products such as dietary supplements, minerals, vitamins, herbals and nutrients has exploded as consumers become increasingly health conscious. Rapid growth has created more demand, expanding into the food and beverage arena. Huge shifts in product development and capacity are driving manufacturing, but the lingering threat of allergens, pathogens, bacteria, and other contaminants has also heightened. Equipment is expected to keep pace and sometimes cleaning slips through the proverbial cracks.
Gummie production requires the cleaning of fiberglass trays to avoid sticky remnants. Buckets, trays and racks used in soft gel and protein bar production need washing because of residue. In starting the process of liquid protein production, drums and barrels come into contact with potential contamination. Expensive scale parts and irregular shaped pieces should be cleaned on a regular basis to avoid contamination of soils, debris, and bacteria. Washing and sanitizing equipment components and containers are more important now than ever. With labor costs and staffing at a premium, having a cleaning system that provides efficient, effective performance allows a shift in focus to other priorities in a facility.
