New cleaning system increases food safety and hygiene at Lerøy Aurora Salmon
With a new System Cleaners solution, Lerøy Aurora Salmon has optimised and adapted cleaning to match a very tight production plan.
At the Norwegian company Lerøy Aurora Salmon 300 tonnes of salmon are processed every day and at times in the high season production only stops for 2.5 hours per 24-hour period. This provided a great challenge for the cleaning team, which used a purely manual system and therefore had difficulty in carrying out the task in the earmarked time.
- The solution was to automate part of the cleaning and set up a central System Cleaners installation, says Niels Peter Clausen, director at System Cleaners.
Specifically this translated into a central installation combined with 31 remote-controlled satellites and automatic cleaning of the conveyor belts.
Remote-controlled satellites improve hygiene
A standard solution will normally comprise one satellite in the premises, which requires connection to hot, and cold water, 3 chemical connections and compressed air, thus 6 pipes down from the wall.
- On the face of it this is not an optimum, hygienic solution. By moving the individual satellite to a machinery floor and providing the cleaner with a remote control, we now have just one pipeline down into the production plant to the hose reels, explains Niels Peter Clausen.
