Our solutions for your completely hygienic secondary packaging process

Crate cleaning system

Sophisticated drive technology for total cleanliness

In returnable bottle systems, crates as well as bottles go through a cleaning system. Here, thorough cleaning is just as important to operators as ease of repair and adjustment. As with the bottle cleaning system, a drive technology with simple speed control, synchronous mode, and flexibility is extremely important. Our solutions meet all of these requirements and, thanks to an appropriate surface load, are highly resistant to cleaning agents and disinfectants.
