The systems are designed to optimise the interaction of chemicals (cleaning agents), mechanics, temperature, water quantity and cleaning time in accordance with Sinner’s circle. Food is stored safely.

This makes it worthwhile even for small and medium-sized companies.

Crate washers from PHT require little water and detergent – with 100 per cent cleaning performance. The design of the crate washers, their module sizes and the adjustment options are decisive for this. The module sizes and zone lengths are perfectly harmonised.

Coarse pre-rinsing and individually adjustable soaking times also ensure reduced media consumption. There is also no need for hygienically questionable separating curtains. These measures contribute to sustainability and minimise the ecological footprint of the cleaning processes.
