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 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.

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

The loosening of coarse dirt in our turbulent soaking bath before the nozzle intensive cleaning is, in practice, still the best solution for the best and most gentle cleaning results for crates with complex compartments and high-quality printing.

For maximum energy saving, the soaking bath in stainless steel sandwich construction is equipped with a 30 mm Styrodur® insulation.

The cyclical quick emptying of the immersion bath during the production ensures an uninterrupted cleaning process and a permanently good cleaning result.

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.

Extensive automation is one of our core competencies. Our automatic CIP internal machine cleaning makes a significant contribution to this. Cleaning agents, pressure, temperature and cleaning time can be configured individually via the process control system of the machine. Dismantling of the individual parts of the system is not required. This saves valuable working time.

* optional

All units such as pumps, sensors and filters are installed in a service-friendly manner in spacious, easily accessible technical rooms of the machine. Large swing doors supported by gas springs allow easy access. The ease of use and servicing for the operating personnel couldn't be easier!
