Residues made history by mould washers
07 March 2013
The problem of cleaning tenacious residues from the moulds used in cheese manufacturing has been solved by the new range of purpose-designed cheese mould washers from Industrial Washing Machines (IWM).The compact and energy-efficient machines are available with throughput capacities of up to 800 moulds per hour and can accommodate moulds of almost any type.
The washers are based on the company's range of tunnel-type tray washers.The mould washers, however,have up-rated pumps and a specially designed jetting system which ensure that even the most convoluted moulds with intricate perforations are cleaned completely.For the smaller user, IWM also has a special version of its Edi13 ALTA cabinet utensil washer that is suitable for low volume washing of cheese hoops and moulds.
The machines clean the moulds using a process that involves a sustained hot water and detergent jet wash, high temperature hot water rinse followed by a coldwater rinse.The machines can be customised as required.
