If there was ever an industry that can benefit from the benefits of ultrasonic industrial cleaning equipment, it is the food industry. When you look at this industry from top to bottom, meaning preparation, slaughtering, production, packaging, and service, every stage along the way offers a chance for contamination.
In addition to the contamination factors, there is also the impact that dirty equipment can have on the taste of a final product. The first thing that comes to mind here is coffee, where improperly descaling machines can lead to several issues. Coffee can and will taste bitter if the machine is not descaled properly. You may also find that the machine itself begins to produce a nasty, acrid smell. This, of course, can also lead to problems with the machine itself.
Benefits of Ultrasonic Cleaners in the Food Industry
Anyone that has worked in any aspect of the food and beverage industry, from a rancher to a coffee barista, knows that food and dirt can get into the smallest of crevices. This is not the end of the world when you are a construction worker. However, it can lead to massive problems in the food industry, which can ultimately force a business to close.
For that very reason, ultrasonic cleaning solutions are the best, safest, and most cost-effective solutions for the food industry.
Let’s go back to our example using coffee machines and urns.
In the hotel and restaurant industry, even a small urn can cost four figures. While a restaurant may only have a few of these urns, a major hotel operation will have dozens of them. High-volume coffee makers are an even larger investment, with 10-gallon brewers running upwards of $4,000 for common brewers. For restaurants, shops, and hotels that also have espresso machines, well, now you are talking about an investment in the $7,000 to $10,000 range for a quality machine.
When you invest that kind of money, you want to put out an incredible tasting product, which you cannot do if your equipment is not cleaned properly. Improper descaling, as mentioned above, can create a bitter taste and eventually cause the machine itself to break. The same can be said for espresso machines, with the added problem of keeping the frother properly cleaned.
The nature of ultrasonic cleaners is ideal for this application. Descaling a coffee boiler can sometimes take days, a process that is reduced to just hours when using ultrasonic cleaning machines. All those small parts where germs and residue can hide… well, they are immaculately cleaned thanks to the imploding bubbles created by the sound waves in the ultrasonic cleaning process.
Now, we only used coffee makers as an example, but imagine how beneficial this same cleaning process would be for sausage makers, butchering equipment, breweries, meatpacking plants, restaurant cooking equipment, etc.
