Production industries,packing plants,foodstorage...Food industries are deeply concerned about cleaning anddisinfecting roomsto fight againstdifferent sourcesof contamination.Cleaning and disinfection in food industriesaims toremove dirt(wasteorcontaminationof treated productsmadebytools ormachineryused inindustrial processes)and to eliminate risks of microbiological and chemical contaminations and infections.
90% of infections occurring in food industry take place during processing and food packaging. To reduce contamination, it is essential to follow a procedure for regular cleaning and disinfection. These methods of cleaning and disinfection in food processing industries, if properly followed, will eliminate bacteria, viruses, yeast, and fungal spores.
IBL Specifik recommends the use of steam to clean and degrease surfaces and production tools. Steam under pressure and very high temperature (185°C and 10 bars for the Steambio 19000) has a biocide and detergent action which dissolves fat and eliminates the microbial biofilm. For large horizontal and vertical surfaces which need to be disinfected, we advise to use a foam washing machine. Its disinfecting foam, its integrated compressor and its unlimited water supply enable a very quick and easy cleaning and disinfection using one single operator.
