Food & Beverage: Vat Wash

Food and Beverage Vat Wash

Thoroughly Clean Vats, V-mag Buggies, Bins and Carts

Many food manufacturers manually clean large product containers, such as vats or buggies, which requires a significant amount of time, water, chemicals and labor—an expensive process.

Sani-Matic’s automated Vat Washers are designed to thoroughly, and more efficiently, clean all product contact surfaces, as well as the exterior surfaces of large vats, bins, plastic combos and V-mag buggies.

The containers are loaded onto an inverting door carriage and lifted into the cabinet where a high-impact rotating spray manifold ensures consistent, full-coverage cleaning. The Vat Washer’s unique dual reservoir design utilizes a pre-rinse process to conserve detergent, water and utilities.
