Pallet Washing System

Posted by Cherry's Industrial Equipment Corp. (booth # S654)

Summary of Innovation

Pallet Washers are not new to the industry; they have been around for quite some time. The models that have been in the industry tended to be modified version of parts washers and didn't take into consideration that the item being washed was something that could come into contact with food or medical supplies. We took a step back from our standard pallet washer offering and looked at ways that we could make them better suited for the food manufacturing industry. What we are now offering is a system that is modular so companies could easily determine what options they would need and something that had buffer zones between the wash, rinse, and dry so that there would be minimal contamination between the modules.

Innovation Statement

The innovation behind our latest pallet washing system is that it is module so additional features can be added in the future, it has buffer zones between each module eliminating cross contamination, and it is leak proof so it can be installed anywhere in the facility.


Due to regulations in the food industry like FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) more companies than ever are using plastic pallets for hygienic purposes and in order to keep the pallets hygienic they need to be washed on a regular basis.
