Food safe and pharmaceutical environments demand different applications of case sealers and erectors. While end of line machinery can be placed in a variety of environments, there are different options that can be taken to ensure that your machine will last as long as possible. In environments that need to be cleaned regularly, not all machines are suitable to being exposed to water or cleaning solutions. It is important to make sure that your machine can withstand washdown procedures.
The intensity of washdown protection on your machine is dependent on your processes. Although end of line machinery is often placed away from intense washdown environments, there are still procedures that require the machine or the floor around it to be cleaned to reduce chances of possible contamination. Not all washdown machines are made the same as it can range from full stainless-steel packages to special machine coatings such as the Enviroguard packages offered by Wexxar Bel.
When choosing the right protection package for your machine, consider not only their application but also the environment and packing procedures to ensure maximum longevity for your machine.
