Whiting Systems, a manufacturer of automatic truck, bus and train wash systems, designed its new SmartWashout internal trailer washout system with refrigerated transporters and produce haulers in mind.
“The new SmartWashout is made of all stainless framework, offers a highly innovative self-centering software system to perfectly ensure proper cleaning and disinfecting of the refrigerated trailer,” said Dave Speer, senior vice president, Whiting Systems. “The SmartWashout unit has the ability to operate as a 2020 MultiGun. The touchscreen has the options displayed ‘SmartWashout’ or ‘MultiGun.' By making the MultiGun option, the unit will control the appropriate valving and process to have the capacity of running four handheld pressure wash guns at the same time. These can be plumbed and dropped into wash bays and shop areas.”
Russ Whiting, president and CEO, said SmartWashout has been adopted by several food distribution companies, whose staff offered advice during the research and design phase.
Whiting Systems developed the SmartWashout with data logging for carriers that must implement procedures to ensure equipment and vehicles are in appropriate sanitary condition while making sure previous cargo does not make food-grade loads unsafe.
Whiting said the design and Pure Hard Surface disinfectant chemistry meet all Food Safety Modernization Act requirements.
“Everything designed into this unit was to better assist in safe food delivery and reducing downtime," Whiting said.
