Avoid harmful bacteria buildup on your packaging machine by following sanitation requirements. Machine designs should not allow moisture collection and other harmful particulates. A particular emphasis should be put on points of product contact where the exposed product can be compromised.
Washdown machine design and sanitary machine design are not the same.
And the design you need depends on what type of product you are packaging and its accompanying health and safety requirements.
Understanding the difference between the two designs will not only help guarantee your line passes inspection and the delivery of a safe product to consumers, but also can save you money on your machine purchase.
