Drain Sanitation Program in Bakery

AREA OF CONCERN: HIGH COUNTS IN DRAINS IN BAKERY

ISSUE

Sterilex was contacted by a large bakery to recommend an enhanced drain sanitation program for the facility.

BACKGROUND

The standard operating procedure for drain sanitation at the plant involved scrubbing each drain nightly with a chlorinated alkaline cleaner and quat sanitizer. Drains still turned up positive for various pathogens during swab tests.

RECOMMENDATION

Sterilex proposed the following actions:

  • Utilize the Sterilex drain sanitation program weekly by using Sterilex Ultra Kleen Solutions 1 & 2 in a 15 gallon air operated tank foamer with 12” drain foam attachment. Take 30 seconds to pump Sterilex foam into the drain and several feet into the drain line.
  • Use the drain stopper to fill up the trunk line with foam on a monthly basis.

RESULTS

Results after one treatment showed dramatic improvement:

  • Program was such a success that three sister plants adopted the drain program as well as an environmental sanitation program with Sterilex technology.
