The use of ultrasounds in the food industry

For years now the overall vision of the safety and quality of the food industry has undergone an enormous change, often prioritising cleanliness over production capacity. This is due to the fact that old trends were characterised by allowing a lack of hygiene in the interests of production speed and sales, and this concept has gradually disappeared over time.

It doesn´t matter is it a restaurant, factory or any other type of company linked to food, they must all fulfil the hygiene and health safety parameters that are being established around the world.

Spain is no exception to these changes, therefore at Ultratecno, we offer the best ultrasound machinery that makes it possible to eliminate any kind of dirt in production lines and the utensils of your company, regardless of the amount of dirt exposes or the depth of incrustation.

How do they work?

Our ultrasound equipment uses the appropriate frequency to eliminate this waste, and can be accompanied by different complementary vats, either for rinsing or drying.  With this cleaning technique, hooks, paella pans, frying pans, oven trays and even production machinery components become very easy and efficient to clean. But a doubt arises, it is really necessary to use this machinery? The answer is yes, and we will tell you why.

The importance of using ultrasound machines

Traditional cleaning methods only superficially remove debris, on the other hand, the ultrasound equipment is very effective on surfaces and orifices, helping to fully eliminate grease, rust and oil.

The specialized cleaning machinery for the food industry uses cavitation for perfect hygiene, which consists of the combination of specific non-harmful chemicals and ultrasound. This makes it possible to completely eliminate dirt, while also not leaving any chance of microbial contamination within the processes or utensils used in the industry. This advanced machinery creates small vacuum cavities or “bubbles” that hit against the surface breaking the cell wall of bacteria and eliminating them. This cutting-edge technology results in significant savings as it prevents the use of abrasive chemicals and possible pollutants that can generate problems when it comes to complying with industrial hygiene standards.

As always, a picture is worth a thousand words. We have provided an example of the cleaning of a production line with our ACM-200E model:
