A brewing facility in northern Mexico used to stop production every day for 30 minutes to perform off-line cleaning. The cleaning procedure consists of adding foam, waiting five minutes, rinsing the foam with water, and running a mechanical cleaner to remove biological and fungal growth caused by unpasteurized beer spillage. Once per week, the brewery had to stop production for 1–4 hours for a more thorough cleaning.
ChemTreat recommended our innovative FillerScrub™ technology, which can be fed during production to help prevent microbiological and fungal growth, reducing the need for frequent off-line cleanings.
After applying the ChemTreat technology, the plant no longer needs to stop production every day. Off-line cleanings have been reduced to 1–2 hours per weekend, saving approximately 3 hours per week while preserving product quality by avoiding biological contamination.
Increased throughput at the facility means other plants no longer need to pick up the slack.
