Kraft Foods Cleaning with Morantz Ultrasonics

There are many uses for our Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems, but just when we thought we knew them all, along comes something new. A few months ago, I was contacted by an energy optimization company that works for many large companies including Kraft Foods Inc. Kraft had a specific part for their baking ovens that needed to be cleaned and the pressure washing/hand cleaning they were doing wasn’t working. The question posed to me was, “Can you clean them?” My answer: “I don’t know until we try”. So that’s just what we did, and as usual, our machines worked beautifully.

As a result, over the past couple of months I personally visited several Kraft bakeries to install custom equipment and train their staff on the operation of the system. The photos that follow are from Kraft’s Chicago operation (which as I was told is the largest bakery in the world!). I have no doubt as each of their ovens was literally a football field long (that’s Gridiron football for all you non US citizens reading this).

Kraft’s needs were specific and they required a machine built to their specifications. In most instances, one of our standard (or slightly modified) machine models will work for a specific application, this time we had to build a specialized system. Working closely with Kraft’s engineers, we built exactly what they needed. Below is a photo of Kraft’s new system now installed in their bakeries throughout the U.S.

Caked-on Calcium Deposits are No Match for Morantz Ultrasonics

If your company has a special part that needs cleaning, and you can send it to us, we will be happy to offer you a FREE trial cleaning. Just this week I mentioned this to a potential client and they happily sent me this steamer oven full of calcium deposits to trial.

The company who owns this steamer (and many others like this) is paying to replace them 2 or 3 times a year at a cost of several thousands of dollars.

By running the trial at our facility, we were able to determine the proper cleaning chemical, temperature, process, power, frequency and machine size needed for the job. The result was amazing!

After Initial Cleaning
Yep, amazing!
