Envision a pit crew where both speed and quality are required. Precise coordination and efficacious design of equipment and tools enable the pit crew to accomplish tasks in a fraction of the time it would take you or me.
THE SUCCESS OF ANY FOOD PROCESSING FACILITY RELIES HEAVILY ON THE FOLLOWING FORMULA:
OPERATING LINE TIME =
TOTAL TIME AVAILABLE
PLANNED DOWN TIME
UNPLANNED DOWN TIME
Sanitation is essentially a changeover during which a deep cleaning is conducted to remove microbial contamination.
The sanitation cycle can be broken down into five separate steps:
Puremed Canada’s Rapid Changeover Objectives
Our team will distinguish between external procedures (those which can be conducted while equipment is operating), internal procedures (those that require equipment to be shut down) and unnecessary procedures. A few examples of how Puremed can substantially shorten the sanitation cycle time and institute practices that ensure the work is performed correctly:
Total productive maintenance (TPM)
The importance of food safety
TPM is integral in achieving rapid changeovers and error-proof cleaning and assembly. TPM is a cross-functional approach to improving overall equipment effectiveness, defined as uptime, performance and quality. TPM creates joint ownership for maintaining and operating equipment.
Operators and Puremed Canada’s disinfection teams both assume the responsibility for equipment care while maintenance personnel have extended responsibility for simplifying operating procedures and design for cleaning.
