The Process of Cleaning
Cleaning is the process of making something clean. Effective cleaning is an essential process in food manufacturing, it is essential to control the physical, chemical and microbiological contamination on the food contact surfaces, equipment and hand-contact surfaces.
In order to clean effectively, regardless of the method employed, one or more sources of energy is required; Movement (Elbow grease or turbulence); Temperature; Chemicals. Often all forms of energy are employed to execute a thorough clean.
The use of detergents combined with physical and thermal energy removes the dirt and may remove some microbes. However, many micro-organisms and in particular their spores can survive this treatment, so a more lethal approach is required – Disinfection.
