Wet cleaning in food manufacturing involves a multi-step process to clean food contact surfaces and processing equipment. It ensures the hygiene and safety of the production environment, which is crucial in maintaining food quality.

The wet cleaning process typically consists of three main steps:

Rinse: At the end of the production process, areas and equipment must be rinsed to remove residual food particles. This is done using pressurised water to remove coarse dirt from equipment, walls, and floors.

Foam: The next step involves foam cleaning. This is done using a foam system with an automatic dosing unit that adds the right amount of cleaning chemicals to the water. The foam, created with air pressure, is applied to all surfaces in the production area and then left to work. After a certain period, the layer of foam is rinsed.

Disinfect: The final step involves post-treatment with a disinfectant. This antibacterial product is sprayed over the equipment and, if needed, the walls and floors to eliminate or neutralise microorganisms. Depending on the type of disinfectant used, an additional rinse with clean water may be necessary to ensure the complete removal of the disinfectant.

Wet cleaning is integral to maintaining hygiene and food safety standards. It removes food residues, bacteria, and other microorganisms, reducing the risk of contamination. A thorough and regular cleaning routine helps to ensure the food product’s quality and consumers’ safety.
