Making parts washing in the food industry safer for employees, safer for the environment and a sustainable business investment.

Every food business relies heavily on equipment in their processes. This makes parts washing a necessary step in maintaining and servicing activities. While a lot of emphasis is placed on the safe use of lubricants in the food industry, other products used in the engineering workshop are not given the same focus. It is time to change this as solvent parts washer products potentially pose a significant hazard to the health of your employees and then there is the issue of disposal and cost of the Hazardous Waste.

Smartwasher uses an innovative solution to ”self clean” parts, it’s perfectly harmless in the Food Environment & it has a NSF A1 Rating. Join us as we chat to CRC Industries about this solution and how it can support your sustainability drive.
