Cleaning is an essential aspect of belt maintenance. It is important in terms of complying with food regulations as well as ensuring visually appealing baked goods. Looks are not everything, though: clean belts also guarantee product safety, for every production run.
Cleaning baking oven belts can be a dirty, time-consuming task, causing downtimes of two days or even more, when done with any of the traditional methods – chemicals, detergents, or dry ice. This spells considerable loss in production runs. Even more so, when the first batch baked right after the cleaning is usually discarded, for safety.
