Food processing sanitation is a key element in protecting the public from germs, pathogensand harmful bacteria that can lead to serious illness. The food industry uses strong cleaning and sanitizing lines and programs to eliminate each kind of bacteria and virus. Traditional sanitizing is a two-stage process: first, the initial cleaning with water and detergents; second, disinfecting with the aid of harsh chemicals such as chlorine, iodine, quaternary ammonium salts, acid and formaldehyde-based substances. Adopting an effective cleaning and sanitizing program is crucial to eliminating pathogens from surfaces and equipment. With Menikini industrial steam machines this type of processing becomes faster and easier as dry steam reduces system and line down times and saves chemical costs. Menikini machines also guarantee total sanitizing and killing of microorganisms because of the heating shock.
