JEROS – Industrial washers with high hygiejne standards

For 60 years, JEROS has ensured high standards of hygiene, consistent wash performance and improved workflow with your environmentally friendly and fully automatic industrial washers.
This is fully in evidence at Stryhns Gruppen in Gråsten, Denmark, where job satisfaction shines through.
A demanding environment. That is how Per Stenger, technical manager at Stryhns Gruppen in Gråsten, Denmark, describes the conditions in the washing hall, where the spray water creates high humidity, making demands of the washer:
“Previously we had a traditional, manual industrial machine, which was nowhere near as efficient or environmentally friendly. I had investigated various suppliers without any luck, so when a colleague showed me their machine from JEROS, I immediately saw that was what we needed,” says Per Stenger.
He continues: “Now we get the right chemical dosing and a disinfecting end rinse, so we ensure hygiene and also save on water and time.
The quality is consistent, and JEROS’s machines are the only ones on the market that can tolerate the environment in which
we work.”
Stryhns in Gråsten has the electropolished model 8160 in stainless steel, with the operating panel located in a separate IP65 fused box on the wall, so the machine can withstand the damp environment.

IMPROVED WORKFLOW
From light lids to heavy machine components. Per Stenger explains that there is a lot of variation in the highly complex equipment, but the complexity no longer presents a challenge.
“The machine can be set according to the weight of the items, which means that small items do not get damaged or stuck during washing. The machine simply does its job, so we don’t really see the technical
department.”
This ensures an optimal working process that can keep up with the production flow, but the improved ergonomic conditions also increase job satisfaction.
“The specially designed trolleys for each individual line in the washing hall increase efficiency considerably. Previously we put everything in a single box, but now we can systematically put things on the trolley and very quickly see whether we’re missing anything,” explains Per Stenger.
He continues: “Every day we clean pipes with bends and components of processing machines. They can now be washed both externally and internally via nozzles in the rack, which automatically connects to the washing and rinsing water when the trolley is pushed in.” Among other things, this means that the components do not require a lot of moving,
and in this way JEROS has minimised the employees’ manual processes and the risk of items being damaged or lost during cleaning.

MINIMISED WASH DOWNTIME
An automated washing process ensures low consumption of water, chemicals and electricity, but also reduces daily wash downtime. This is vital in a competitive working day with high production levels:
“The capacity of the old machine was limited, so we weren’t able to use it for all equipment. That meant we spent a lot of unnecessary time on manual washing.
JEROS’s machine has a larger washing compartment with an open front, so we can handle more equipment in a single cycle,”
explains Per Stenger.
“This is unique for JEROS, and combined with a minimal downtime the effect is significant. A wash takes three minutes, while complex components are done in six to eight minutes. You couldn’t possibly do it quicker by hand if you wanted to ensure consistent hygiene performance,” says Per Stenger.

FULLY AUTOMATIC WASHING SOLUTION
Hygiene and consistent results are vital.
That is precisely why Per Stenger is excited about the JEROS, which guarantees high levels of performance with every wash. The washing process is carried out at 52°C, and an end rinse at 85°C ensures that the items are disinfected. This eliminates listeria and salmonella, while the fully automatic washing solution also removes the risk of cross-contamination.
The phasing out of manual washing has also reduced wastewater. The machine uses just 16 litres of water per wash, and the automatic chemical dosing guarantees a correct quantity of soap:
“Obviously it’s important that the machine is environmentally friendly. We want to maintain sustainable production, with minimal consumption of chemicals in the washing process,” says Per Stenger.

SIMPLE CLEANING
Per Stenger describes the 8160 as “a small, smart machine”, and flexible washers that can be installed in awkward spaces without
presenting a challenge to daily cleaning is precisely what JEROS is known for:
“The washer is simple to clean; if you remove the basket, you can get at all the filters. JEROS has given us optimal ergonomic conditions, consistent hygiene and a high level of job satisfaction.
