We’re only a week away from our next webinar featuring a topic that, despite its simplicity, causes more misunderstanding, confusion, and the creation of silly, misguided rules than anything else in this industry: cleaning and preventative maintenance. While regular cleaning and preventative maintenance is vitally important to the longevity, efficiency, and effectiveness of your post-harvest equipment, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the points we will cover in our live-streamed webinar.
Know what’s what. What does “cleaning” even mean? And what does your governing body (federal, state/provincial or local authorities) have to say about it? The labor costs associated with proper cleaning can be a very reasonable cost of doing business, or they can potentially spiral out of control. Factor in the tedium that cleaning can represent, and the morale-smothering nature of arbitrary rules in the form of clunky, non-sensical SOPs and the like, and it’s pretty easy to see the value in understanding the basics.
70% Iso? 90% Iso? Which cleans best? (Trick question, by the way.) We’ll delve into the categories of cleaners, wash-bay workflows, tips and tricks, and how your company can get out of its own way.
And just like changing the oil or replacing the brakes in your car, industrial machinery requires preventative maintenance, too. Are you budgeting the down-time and capital costs required to keep your hot rod running strong? Your post-harvest equipment is an investment in the future and profitability of your company, and deserves to be taken care of!
