OspreyDeepclean’s Innovative Dry Steam Technology Saves Food Production Plants Millions of Litres in Water

Hygiene systems specialist, OspreyDeepclean is launching innovative dry steam technology systems to help the food manufacturing sector clean efficiently and cost effectively using unique water saving science.

 The technology, which is the first of its kind in the UK, uses a continuous flow heating coil system to produce vapour with a strong sanitising power to safely remove micro-organisms and bacteria. Efficient cleaning capacity is produced from the steam pressure made on the surface to be cleaned and the solvent power of micro drops at a high temperature, with minimal moisture present.

 Food manufacturers are faced with achieving the very highest standards of cleanliness of

technically complex plant processing equipment and the food manufacturing site. The new technology meets the challenges of cleaning in environments such as dry food areas, where water systems cannot be used. In other sections of the plant, thousands of litres of water are currently being used to clean the production environment.

 The continuous steam system provides constant steam quality which can be adjusted by volume and dryness. Water flow and heating power can be controlled and adapted by an electronic control system. Traditional cleaning methods have mainly relied on potentially hazardous chemicals or traditional boiler systems and dry ice systems which require detergent, dry ice, filtration and bath treatment.

OspreyDeepclean’s technology is available in a range of dry steam machines for different applications. This includes the fully auditable dry steam belt sanitation unit (BSU) which cleans conveyor belts to allergen level, saving up to three million litres of water per annum.

 A second device has been developed for the packaging areas where a central steam system, much like a central vacuum, facilitates cleaning without the need for manual intervention. The sophisticated equipment can be used for the cleaning of heavy parts and automotive parts such as cylinder heads, cam shafts and connecting rods and for plastic parts cleaning. The machines start from a 3kW single phase unit and reach up to 144kW plants available in electric, oil or gas heated coils. This fully integrated system permits the whole cleaning process to become auditable using sophisticated PC software.

 Thomas Stuecken, Chairman of OspreyDeepclean said: “With our new boiler free technology, we are at the forefront of water saving science. We are currently in negotiation with the some of the largest food manufacturing companies to design bespoke, highly advanced cleaning and hygiene systems.”
