The food processing and packaging industry plays a major role in ensuring that the final product is safe to consume. While food safety is a serious requirement, it also presents significant challenges for manufacturers. Frequent, high-pressure washdowns are essential to keep machines free from pathogens, yet these washdowns are often incomplete, ineffective and damaging to motors and other equipment.

Common practices such as shielding or bagging motors to prevent damage are extremely time-consuming. Direct washdown of equipment that is not properly designed to prevent water ingress can lead to premature failure. Irregular and rough surfaces can harbor pathogens that are difficult to remove. Eliminate all these issues by employing these best practices for the design of a more hygienic and productive machine.
