The Sanitouch system does not wash eggs in recycled egg wash water. It uses brushes and a slight stream of heated, sanitised fresh water to clean the eggs, not high pressure sprays. Uses 80 litres an hour maximum.

Operation of the Sanitouch Egg Washers and Graders:-
1/ In the standard models the eggs are hand placed on an infeed ramp. Automatic feed models are available with automatic and semi automatic in-feed systems.
- Sanitiser, manual load, manual unload, the basic system.
- Sanitiser with candler, manual load, manual unload (the most common system).
- Sanitiser with candler, semi auto load, manual unload. An upgrade to speed loading.
- Sanitiser, candler, digital grader, manual load manual unload. Add Digital grading, no more transfer between washer and grader
- Sanitiser, candler, digital grader, semi Auto loader, manual unload. The fastest lowest labour system
- Prices depend on the models and options, and the exchange rate.
2/ The eggs are taken into the washer by a plastic conveyor. The conveyor moves the eggs along a track which rocks the eggs from side to side as they roll along the track.
3/ The eggs pass under the first set of brushes where the coarse nylon brushes scrub away any soil.
4/ At the same time a spray of temperature controlled water at 45 degrees C wets the eggs, this water is not recycled. The small machine above will use approx. 20-30 litres per hour.
5/ An automatic medicator injects a chlorine based egg sanitiser into the wash water to ensure bacterial control on the surface of the egg.
6/ The eggs pass through the wash section on the conveyor to the drying section.
7/ The dry section has fine nylon brushes which disperse the water and allow evaporation of the water.
8/ At the same time, a blower ensures a flow of fresh cool air to assist with the drying of the egg.
9/ The eggs arrive out of the washer onto a receiving tray for hand repacking onto trays.
10/ The eggs may continue on to an attached grader or automatic egg packer.
Due to the vagaries of exchange and freight rate, and the number of combinations in the system, it is not possible to give a fixed price here. Contact us with your requirements to get an up to date costing.
