Cleaning & washdown systems

The equipment in this section is used for the mixing and delivery of liquid cleaning chemicals and water in bakeries and many other food processing premises where the removal of contaminants such as greases, fats, proteins, and other residues is essential.  Cleaning is distinct from disinfecting or sanitising and must take place before any disinfecting operations.

We supply a large range of innovative products from US company Lafferty Equipment which has been specialising in manufacturing foamers, sprayers, foggers and dilution control systems for more than 35 years.  The company's products are designed for demanding applications in the food processing, bottling, car/truck washing, agricultural and industrial sectors. 

The range of cleaning and washdown systems includes mixing stations, mobile and fixed spraying equipment and conveyor cleaning solutions and includes compressed air-assisted systems.  We also supply a range of hand and foot-operated hand sanitising equipment.

Wall-mounted sprayers and spray guns

The following units allow for mixing water and cleaning chemicals either at a wall-mounted station or at a gun (compact sprayer).  These just need a water supply to work and operate at a wide variety of flow rates.

Information on our different sprayer options can be found by clicking on the product boxes below.

Air-powered mobile cleaning stations

These units are powered by compressed air and come in a range of sizes to suit cleaning of any small-medium sized area.  There are two options - the Pressure Pot System distributes pre-diluted liquids while the Air-pump System provides integrated mixing. 

See box below for more information.

Conveyor sanitiser

These units can be mounted on a portable trolley or on a wall and use venturi action to mix concentrate to deliver a spray to conveyors.  They have adjustable arms and nozzles to ensure coverage of variable width conveyors.  The Conveyor-Mate™ 315 Sanitizer System is specialised for Clean-In-Place spray sanitising on to conveyor belts and can also be used as a manual sanitiser.  The stainless steel spray arm and nozzle assembly can be permanently or temporarily mounted to the conveyor belt housing or nearby surface.  The fully adjustable spray arm extends vertically and horizontally to virtually any position.  The unique stainless steel Spreader Nozzle™ creates a wide spray pattern that can be adjusted and rotated to ensure optimal coverage at any angle.  The included 315 Sanitiser is a venturi dilution system that uses mains water pressure (35 - 125 PSI) to accurately draw and blend chemical concentrate into the water stream.  The solution is then projected through the discharge hose to the spray arm.  Quick disconnect the spray arm and attach a wand for manual sanitizing.  Ideal for food factory conveyor cleaning & washdown.

Manual sprayers

For areas which may be hard to reach with more conventional washdown systems, backpack and compression sprayers can be used to spray detergents and disinfectants.  They require no power and produce a low impact, wet spray.
