Surface cleaning in Food and Beverage Processing

Blog | 11 June 2020

We work in partnership with our customers in the food processing, brewing and dairy processing sectors to ensure their hygiene systems are robust and meet the necessary guidelines.  An important element of this work is the area of surface cleaning.  It is carried out as a wet or dry process, depending on the potential soils present, the product, the process and the type of production equipment.  Our teams of experts ensure that every hygiene system and the specific cleaning techniques involved are bespoke to the customer and their requirements.

 

What are the methods involved in surface cleaning?  John Holah, Holchem’s Technical Director, explains:

Open plant cleaning typically refers to the methods involved: Dry Cleaning, Semi Dry Cleaning, Manual Cleaning, Soak Cleaning and Foam Cleaning. Holchem’s teams work with customers to develop an individual hygiene plan that meets the needs of the business and that will in turn include specific methods of surface cleaning.  It’s a key part of the complete production process and starts with an understanding of the whole of the food or drink processing, the equipment that needs cleaning and the specific soils and residues that are present.
