In the food processing industry, many facilities rely heavily on high-temperature dry steam to remove grease, food residue, oily byproducts, and harmful microorganisms from food handling equipment and surfaces. Conveyor belt systems rank among the most important components of food production lines and keeping their surfaces and components clean is critical for protecting the quality and integrity of food products.
While these systems can be cleaned by hand, it tends to be extremely labor-intensive and often delivers inconsistent and unreliable results. With manual and automatic steam cleaning methods, dry steam effectively sanitizes surfaces and quickly dissolves grime build-up for a deep clean without the use of harsh chemicals.
This eBook discusses the benefits of steam cleaning in the food processing industry, with an emphasis on conveyor belt sanitation.
