Usually we used a foaming machine to ensure all surfaces are covered during cleaning. Then, leave it for 30 minutes to 1 hour and rinse thoroughly.


As for the debris, you should manually clean it  :eek_yello: . This is where the tricky and dangerous act comes in. 


We have a lot of accidents when cleaning those screw conveyor so you should implement a lockout procedure to make sure no one will turn it on while someone is cleaning the equipment.
