Snack Food Processing Container Washing Equipment

 Douglas Machines Corp. is a leading manufacturer of washing and sanitizing equipment used in the commercial snack food processing industry.

Douglas Machines Snack Food Processing Equipment

For 40 years, Douglas Machines has worked alongside snack food and baking companies involved in the production, importation/wholesaling, and retailing of snack foods including chips, candy, chocolates, cookies, crackers, jerky, tortillas and more.

Snacks come in a variety of types and consistencies with different ingredients. Because of this diverse mix, sanitation and container cleaning can be difficult.  Dependent upon the product; dough, flour, fillings, meat and toppings can stick to cracks, nooks and crannies in containers.  It is an open invitation for unwanted allergens and pathogens to hide, while cross-contamination spreads.

Purchasing a Douglas Machines washing and sanitizing system eleviates the inconsistency of manually washing containers that have difficult soils and debris that must be removed.  With fewer workers involved in the cleaning process, it frees labor that may be shifted to another area of need in the facility.  

The Snack Food Industry trusts Douglas with their container washing needs because we provide maximum productivity, decreased energy, chemical and water costs, increased shelf life for equipment, tools and utensils, and reduced manpower for regular washing.
