The use of dry steam in conjunction with a Belt Sanitation Unit (BSU) outperforms other belt washing systems in the market. It enables the belt to be cleaned and sanitized during the production process. Dry steam can be applied to both sides of the belt and the belt direction can be varied during the cleaning process. Offered as both a portable unit for use in multiple locations or as a fully integrated system built into the production line, the use of a BSU reduces chemical and disinfection usage and speeds up cleaning tasks. Dry steam is the ideal tool for use in a “dry” environment and helps to facilitate faster product changeovers as the belts are left sanitized, dry and allergen-free after cleaning, ready for immediate re-use.
