knife and glove washers

Knife and Glove Washers

A new concept of gloves and knives sanitizing,based on the knowledge of the thermal inactivation cinematics of pathogens. This concept optimizes the time and energy consumption, apart from registering and documenting all the process. We can guarantee the washing results and the total disinfection of the gloves and knives, achieving the logarithmic reduction level previously chosen on the program, based on Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella or Escherichia coli. This is the ideal solution for the homologation in some countries as well as to get certifications BRC, IFS or ISO22000, etc.
