What is a crate washer
At Limex we develop crate washers, but what exactly is a crate washer and for what purpose is it used? The crate washers we develop are used by companies that require high standards of hygiene in their processes, for example in the food sector. In that industry, it is absolutely essential that all processes are as clean as they possibly can be, to give viruses, fungi or bacteria no chance to survive. Our crate washers clean all crates hygienically, resulting in maximum shelf life and food safety for your products.
The advantages of using Limex’ crate washers
A crate needs to be not only visually clean, but also microbiologically. A crate might look ‘clean’ to the human eye, but there can still be viruses, fungi or bacteria present on the surface. Our crate washers ensure that the crate is really thoroughly cleaned. Our crate washing techniques have been proven to work against and eliminate viruses like CGMMV, ToBRFV and TVX. And in our own research lab we make sure to keep up to date with the latest developments in the world of viruses, to which we respond by adapting our machines and systems according to the latest knowledge. Our Limex crate washers have a capacity of cleaning between 150 and 4,000 crates per hour, with a focus on reduction of the usage of water, energy and chemical consumption. Another advantage from an economical point of view: our Limex crate washers retain a high residual value because of the extensive trade in used machines, so it’s an investment that keeps its value over time.
Here at Limex, we focus on a high degree of product hygiene and the protection of crops against viruses, bacteria and fungi with the usage and development of our crate washers. Improving production hygiene reduces product waste and results in a higher output while keeping the input of the process on the same level (raw materials, energy or labour).
