Pennine Foods Invests in High Efficiency Washdown System

ChemFlowJanuary2015Q2 washdown systems are now under great demand from food manufacturers striving for maximum efficiency. Q2 has a range of cleaning and disinfection systems providing high efficiency washdown to clients including sites within 2 Sisters Food Group, Tulip Ltd, Kerry Group and Cranswick plc.

Steve Castledine, Hygiene Manager for Pennine Foods, Sheffield (2 Sisters), comments: “Using our Q2 System definitely makes our clean far easier and faster, and the system has reduced each gun’s water usage by 64%. The transition from our previous system was easy, and there have been no issues to date. From start to finish, the backup and support was just great!”

Pennine Foods’ water, power and chemical usage has decreased majorly since the Q2 System was installed, along with a more efficient medium pressure rinse method. Overall, savings made were greater than Pennine Foods had anticipated.

One key reason for Pennine’s chemical savings is the ChemFlow Centre, which doses chemical and water according to demand, helping Pennine use no more chemical than needed, at the most accurate dosage possible.
