Wash-Down Hygienic Design

Hygienic design means designing systems like Checkweighers, X-ray inspection equipment or Metal Detectors which are used in hygiene-relevant areas such as those in the food industry, so that cleaning is effortless. The aim is to prevent design flaws that could promote hygiene-related hazards. The ability to clean materials, surfaces and structural elements without obstructions is of paramount importance. Contaminants of any kind must not be allowed to settle or remain permanently; on the contrary, they must be easy to remove and the overall design must facilitate cleaning of the product-carrying areas without leaving residues.

Cleaning products and disinfectants as well as any liquids originating from food must be able to drain away freely and parts which are removable for cleaning purposes should be easy to dismantle. Systems made of stainless steel have the advantage here; specification in accordance with IP65 is strongly recommended.

Resistance to cleaning products and corrosion is required if wet cleaning is intended (wash-down – meaning the use of high-pressure steam cleaners, such as in meat processing for example). In many cases, wet cleaning necessitates a higher protection class, often IP69K.
