Dion Dellar, Reliability Supervisor, Orlando Wines SA

Just sending a quick email about the Hotwash that you sold us. We have
finally used it for our first major overhaul of our fillers. We managed to
get two fillers and one corker stripped and overhauled during a recent
shutdown. The Hotwash has vastly improved the standard to which we clean
parts and the time it takes to clean the parts.

In the past we normally have 4 x TA’s cleaning all parts by hand which would
take about 4 days. We managed to have all parts cleaned in one day which
enabled us to complete two filler overhauls (filling heads & lifting feet)
of which one filler contains 100 filling heads and the other has 72.

As you will see from some photo’s attached the heads and feet have cleaned
up really well and the added bonus of 90 degree temperature, we now
sterilise our heads at the same time.

We have set up our Hotwash with pallet tank at the back which we pump
caustic in and out of to recycle as we need to rinse in citric acid as the
stainless components can start to corrode so we are using the Hotwash to
rinse as well.

We are extremely happy with the reliability of the machine and are
particularly impressed with the performance of the unit. We would highly
recommend a Hotwash machine to anyone who has a workshop that needs to
improve their parts cleaning productivity and reduce costs.
