Driven primarily by economic factors, multiple use of synthetic protective apparel has increased dramatically in the food processing industry during the last decade.
Questionable, however, is the ability of synthetic garments to be adequately cleaned and sanitized between uses by manual cleaning and sanitizing processes. The variables associated with all aspects of manual cleaning and sanitizing must be eliminated to provide a consistent and uniform process that is reliable and effective after each use.
Process automation incorporating standard, documented cleaning and sanitizing conditions eliminates human factor variables and standardizes conditions for the process to be consistently effective and to meet HACCP regulatory requirements. Protective synthetic garments comprised of PolyConversions, Inc. VR™ were studied to determine if an automated laundering process could clean and sanitize without altering the surface properties of the VR™ material and without damaging the garment’s structural integrity.
