Open plant Cleaning (OPC)
Food processing under appropriate hygienic and sanitary conditions requires the cleaning and disinfection of work surfaces. The surfaces of installations and machinery, whether horizontal or vertical (floors, walls, tables, machinery, etc.) and whether in contact with food or not, are described as open surfaces.
Proper cleaning and disinfection is a very important measure to control microbiological contamination, to avoid the presence of pathogens and to extend the shelf life of the products.
Foaming detergents shall be used for cleaning OPEN SURFACES. The application of detergents in the form of foam increases the contact time between the product and the surface, thus optimizing the action/time ratio in cleaning. For this type of application, CHRISTEYNS offers alkaline detergents, chlorinated detergents and neutral detergents.
