Food & Beverage Solutions

Food safety, worker safety and regulatory compliance — these are three of the most important goals in every food processing and manufacturing facility. Cleanliness is essential to achieving all of these goals, while improper cleaning can result in costly product recalls, health and safety risks and a loss of confidence in your brand.

Nilfisk’s complete cleaning solution for food facilities delivers the cleaning results you need to exceed compliance requirements and ensure food and worker safety, while also reducing costs and improving productivity.

Wet, dry or dangerous — whatever your cleaning challenge, Nilfisk can solve it.

Prevent cross-contamination and improve workplace safety

Food facility cleaning programs understandably tend to focus on food contact surfaces. But the areas adjacent to food contact surfaces — floors, walls, and the exteriors of equipment — are just as important because it’s very easy for contaminants in these areas to transfer to the food. In addition, slippery floors are a leading cause of slip-and-fall incidents.

Nilfisk’s complete cleaning solution addresses all of these areas:

  • High pressure washers remove food particles from conveyor belts and other food contact surfaces, and also clean the walls, loading docks, and the exteriors of equipment.
  • Industrial sweepers remove dust and other dry debris from the floors, while also preventing that dust from dispersing into the air and creating a cross-contamination risk.
  • Industrial scrubbers clean floors with water and detergent. They also dry as they go to minimize the risk of slips, trips and falls.
  • Industrial vacuums clean floors, collect trim from packaging machines and remove dust from walls, overhead pipes and equipment.

Protect workers and facilities by controlling combustible dust hazards

The food products industry accounts for almost one-quarter of all combustible dust fires and explosions. These incidents typically occur when dust has been allowed to accumulate on overhead pipes and surfaces.

Nilfisk’s NFPA 652-compliant industrial vacuum cleaners will help you protect your facility and your workers by meeting all regulatory standards for the safe collection of combustible dusts.
