Hi Guys..

 

I would like to seek your opinion on how I can sanitize my trolley wheels before entering kitchen area.

 

The trolley is use to transfer kitchen utensils from HACCP certified kitchen to non HACCP certified kitchen.

 

We share same cleaning facilities and storage in the main HACCP certified kitchen. 

 

I'm thinking to have foot bath to sanitize the wheels means that we will hack the floor and make the ramp for the trolley to get in and out.

 

What is your opinion?

 

Please advise.

 

Thank you

Hi There,

 

you could try a heavy duty sticky mat (used for footwear as well as forklifts) to clean the wheels or you could look at a sensor triggered spray targeting the wheels as you pass through the door way.

 

Hope this is helpful.

Hi mufar,

 

Similar to yr idea, I have used a somewhat ugly method by creating a 2-3 in. deep "angle" in the horizontal floor path which acts as a dip pool. Only partial for large wheels of course  but minimizes  worker inconvenience. Large ramps can generate some interesting experiences if heavy load. :smile:


Kind Regards,

Hi Pauldip3,

 

I think the sensor triggered spray system quite practical and workable to implement. 

 

Thanks you.

Hi Charles,

 

Yes I know what do you mean by "interesting experiences"  :smile:

 

I had the experienced before in my former employer.

 

About the sanitizer solution, which one more effective between chlorinated and QAC based if you don't mind to share.

Hi Mufar,

 

I only have experience with hypochlorite. it's usually relatively cheap.

I guess sanitizing efficiency will relate to the specific contamination / environment.

You could  try swabbing before/after "dipped"  if wish to compare.


Kind Regards,

So I am having a similar issue, we have two sides. both sides are low risk and contain wheat, milk and soy in all finished products. Side 2 also contains egg. right now I am saying that since we have 2 fork lifts one will be dedicated to each side. however there is area they mingle (the shipping area between the two production sides). my sanitation super wants to put in sprayers or a solid sanitizing dust for the lifts to run through. I am opposed to both of these, the solid due to the dust and not being able to control it well, and the sprayers because we work with flour and I dont want to introduce moisture.

 

any ideas? I liked the idea of the sticky pads and just a general wipedown.

Ecolab recommended we use Drysan duo and spray the wheels before entering production.

I don't know what your budget thud you can go with a channel in the floor to a wheel bath set up or simply use what several of our clients use and that is a spray container with wand containing drySan duo from eco.
