SaniCab ® P Cabinet Washers

The Scale Bucket, Buggy, Barrel, Tote, Hose, and More — Washer

The SaniCab P is a type of Cabinet or Parts Washer designed to automate your Clean-Out-of-Place (COP) cleaning process. Simply load your dirty parts onto a removable rack, load the rack into the washer, select your cleaning program, and press start. When the wash cycle is complete, remove the rack of clean parts and repeat.

The removable racks can be customized to hold an assortment of unique parts, optimizing your productivity, and ensuring you consistently meet your desired cleaning results. These racks are designed for a wide variety of items such as weigh hoppers, piston fillers, trays, pump components, process fittings, pallets, buckets, and much more. 

Increased Productivity and Repeatable Cleaning Results

A common issue for both the Food & Beverage and Personal Care & Nutraceutical industries is the need for consistent, accurate cleaning. With the current labor shortages and an increase in production demands, automated washers can provide much-needed relief. With cleaning cycle times as short as 10 minutes, racks designed to optimize productivity, and various levels of documentation capabilities manufacturers can easily resolve their cleaning needs and also meet both FSMA and HACCP compliance.

Configured to Meet Your Facilities Needs

The SaniCab P can be configured to meet your specific application and process needs in one of two ways. With our “Configured Design Offerings”, or CDO, you can choose from the standard options available in the model key, located in the Technical Datasheet.

If your needs require specialization outside of the standard options, a custom-engineered solution known as an “Alternative Design Request”, or ADR can be created. An ADR allows for the washer to be customized based on construction, orientation, desired options, or other technical requirements specific to your facility. Either way, we can provide the right solution for you.

Quick Tips

Looking to reduce your water consumption?

The SaniCab is specifically designed around having a low sump volume, which results in less water being used each cycle. Additional water savings can be obtained by reusing the final rinse water in the next pre-rinse cycle or by including a remote holding tank to store and reuse water.

How it Works

The SaniCab Cabinet Washer  is very similar to a typical household dishwasher. At home, dirty dishes are loaded into the dishwasher via a sliding rack that is part of the machine. This sliding rack is designed to be generic, able to hold a wide variety of items. Once full, detergent is then added, the desired washing cycle selected, and the machine runs as programmed.  

Unlike a home dishwasher, the SaniCab uses Racks with 360 degrees of access for loading soiled parts. With multiple Racks, operators can unload clean parts and reload dirty parts onto one Rack while another Rack of parts is being cleaned – streamlining the cleaning process and saving time.  

While Generic Racks  are available, each process and application normally have diverse parts with varying types of soils that need to be removed. For that reason, Sani-Matic offers Custom-Designed Racks  that are engineered to meet the exact geometry of each part for optimum surface exposure and drainage. 

Once the Rack is filled with dirty parts, it is loaded into the SaniCab using a  Transfer Cart. The operator opens the Cabinet Washer door, pushes the Transfer Cart to align with the loading rails, and rolls the rack into the washer chamber. They then remove the Transfer Cart automatically locking the rack in place, close the Cabinet Washer door, and the SaniCab is ready to run. 

From the nearby touchscreen, the operator selects from a list of available cleaning programs. These cleaning programs are fully automated and require no additional steps once the Start button has been pressed. Depending on the application, cleaning programs can be as short as 10 minutes or as long as 3 hours, allowing time for the operator to perform other tasks. 

A typical cleaning program will consist of a  Pre-Rinse step, a Chemical Wash  step, and a Final Rinse  step. The Pre-Rinse step is used to remove any large surface soils. The Chemical Wash step is typically heated and introduces a non-foaming cleaner to remove the remaining soils. The Final Rinse step is intended to wash away any remaining chemical residue. Additional steps can be added if, for example, a Sanitizing  step is needed.

Cleaning programs are customized to your exact process requirements and can only be modified, or new programs created, by an operator with appropriate permissions. This ensures your process is repeatable, and your parts are consistently cleaned to your required standards. 

The SaniCab uses multiple rotating Spray Bars mounted inside the chamber to spray pressurized water onto the dirty parts. Each spray bar is outfitted with a series of spray nozzles, creating an effective, multi-directional area of coverage to clean each part as it sits on the Rack.  

While the cleaning program is running, the SaniCab’s Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is collecting wash cycle data from each sensor and event. Similar to a physical chart recorder, this data is stored for later use, but it can also connect to digital products like  SaniTrend Local or  SaniTrend Cloud to give operators the ability to better analyze the data, view trends, receive real-time e-mail/text alerts, and more!  

Once the cleaning program is completed, clean parts will typically have residual water on their surfaces. If your process requires your parts to be dry, an optional Dryer can be incorporated to dry your parts after your cleaning cycle is complete. Once the cleaning and optional drying cycles are complete, the Rack can be removed, and the next round of parts washing can begin.

Featured Options & Accessories 

Active Rack Distribution Zones

If you have parts with complex geometry or difficult to clean places, strategically placed spray balls and rotary sprays can be incorporated onto the Rack. During the cleaning process, an additional valve will open supplying water to a coupler inside the washer, activating these strategically placed spray devices to create a unique cleaning option. This allows for unique parts such as jugs, carboys, and even hoses to be effectively cleaned inside and out.

Automated Conveyorized Mesh Screen

The Automated Conveyorized Mesh Screen option replaces the manual perforated screen tray strainer with a conveyorized strainer to the sump of the washer . This option is used for applications with large soil loads that do not dissolve in the initial rinse water. The soils are rinsed off the parts during the first rinse phase of the cleaning cycle and automatically conveyed out of the chamber.

Buggy Inverter

The Buggy Inverter accessory allows buggies (with 200 – 600 lb. capacities) to be inverted and placed onto the Buggy Standard Active Rack when it is loaded onto a transfer cart for transport to the SaniCab system for automated, thorough cleaning. After being cleaned and unloaded from the cabinet, the Buggy Inverter reverts the buggy from the rack back onto the ground.

Chemical Addition Options

As a standard, the SaniCab has three (3) chemical injection ports available to connect up to three (3) loose ship, stand-alone chemical chemical injection skids. These skids include an air operated diaphragm pump and a 15-gallon chemical container.

If your facility prefers another type of chemical container or even a chemical drum, Sani-Matic also offers a loose ship, stand-alone chemical pump assembly that can be mounted to meet your facilities needs while delivering chemical to the SaniCab.

NOTE: chemical delivery skid or chemical pump must be mounted within thirty (30) feet of the SaniCab injection ports.

Dryer System – Electric

This dryer skid is a loose ship, stand-alone skid that attaches to the SaniCab, adding heated drying and cooling phases at the end of the cleaning cycle. These phases significantly reduce the amount of residual final rinse water on the parts and rack prior to unloading the rack onto a transfer cart.  

NOTE: While this is an optional stand alone skid, the SaniCab must have the necessary porting added to the top of the chamber.
