Watch On-Demand

The common perception in food production facilities is that every internal area must be spotless to meet food safety regulations. To be spotless, requires equipment to withstand aggressive cleaning processes with caustic chemicals and mass volumes of water. In reality, there are areas within every facility that are considered dry zones where equipment does not require cleaning and remains free from moisture or exposure to outside environments.

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • What does Food-Safe mean
  • Typical wet and dry zone environments throughout a facility
  • How to select the right product for each area in your facility
