The cleaning and sterilisation of processing and packaging machines are time and resources consuming.
In some areas of
there are basically new solutions to reduce the contamination of surfaces as well as to avoid contamination.
In 2003 tests to analyse the attachment of microorganism on technical surfaces were carried out. As test surfaces different “easy to clean” surfaces and stainless steel were chosen. For the detection of the surface attached microorganism the method of biomonitoring was used. In result of the tests a tendentious less attachment of E.coli TG1 microorganism on “easy to clean” surfaces was found.
In food industry the product adherence on surfaces is the major contamination reason. Within this project the product adherence is the focus of testing. The results of these tests are going to be compared with the results of the microorganism tests. Thereby we want to verify, if the results could be generalised.
Hence the following project steps are to be carried out:
