The machine structure, which has been tested for years, is completely made of stainless steel, and is designed for durability and ease of maintenance and cleaning.

Specially embossed hinged slat chains ensure that the crates are carried along safely and at a distance, so that the crates are handled gently when the crates are jammed.

Special, individually adjustable clip nozzles ensure a consistent cleaning result for all surfaces of the crate.

Long-life LED lights in the entire interior of the machine ensure optimal illumination for function control of the machine and work safety during production, cleaning and maintenance.

Largely dimensioned safety glass windows, as opposite to the black-box crate washers, ensure transparency and easy access to the machine.

In order to avoid the ingress of coarse dirt into the service water, a long-life cyclically rotating filter belt ensure a continuous removal of the dirt. The lye service life is extended and the machine cleaning is effectively facilitated.

For drives and pumps, we only use energy-efficient quality products from leading manufacturers. This also guarantees a seamless supply of spare parts worldwide.

For filtration of the solids and suspended matter from the process water, we use high quality ”state of the art“ stainless steel filters. They also filter the washing lye during the automatic backwashing - the ultimate alternative to the conventional disposable filter elements.
