What is washdown?
In the food and beverage industry, washdown refers to the process of cleaning manufacturing and processing equipment, and sanitary areas using a high-pressure spray of hot water and/or chemicals. This is an essential process because it kills bacteria and other contaminants to sanitize the surfaces that food products may come in contact with.

What is a steam mixing washdown station?
Our WD2010 steam mixing stations carefully and thoroughly mix steam and cold water to provide “instant” hot water on demand. Using the proportional flow water and steam control valves, the operator can adjust the washdown station to deliver the desired hot water temperature as indicated on the dial thermometer located in the mixed water discharge. By depressing the ergonomically designed fail-safe trigger of the hand-held spray nozzle or the optional spray lance, the operator can direct a steady flow of hot water from a fine spray to a solid jet.
