Unparalleled ease of cleaning

The patented Planex® System is designed and developed to make cleaning operations outstandingly fast and effective. This is an important consideration for any machine, and one that is absolutely essential for a dryer that customers from all around the world have selected for its versatility and ability to be used in multi-product assets. Ease of cleaning, in fact, means that all the operations involved in washing the interior of the dryer, removing the internal parts, inspecting the unit and cleaning the exterior are simple and straightforward.

Perfect results

The fully accessible chamber interior, with no hard-to-reach zones or areas that could trap product residues, ensures that the entire dryer can be perfectly cleaned. To make the washing operation even more effective, the dryer is equipped with an efficient C.I.P. (Clean-in-Place) system with retractable rotating washing head.

Equipping Planex® System with the C.I.P. washing unit not only guarantees perfect cleaning, it also provides significant savings: the agitator’s off-centered position enables it to rotate during washing, thus reducing the amount of liquid needed.

Internal parts removal

Fast, easy and straightforward

Thanks to its special structure, the agitator can be readily disassembled into removable sectors, thus making cleaning operations even more effective.
This is an exclusive feature that makes Planex® System a one-of-a-kind dryer: in conventional systems, the agitator is made of a single structure and removing it requires the use of bulky equipment and long system downtimes.
The force of innovation stays also in the details: technological excellence, for maximum efficiency.

Complete and safe

The big front-opening hatch provides full access to the entire drying chamber.
Other advantages include the agitator’s off-centered position and the ease with which the paddles can be removed.
This allows the operator to have more room to work, making it even faster and easier to carry out swab testing.

External cleaning

Fast and effective

The exterior of Planex® System is also easy to clean. The entire machine is housed in a sealed external casing (cGMP particle-free configuration) which encloses the insulation and all electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. In addition, no support to the machine is present in the clean room, as the drying chamber is flange-mounted on the wall. In this way the chamber exterior can be cleaned quickly and effectively, avoiding product accumulations in slots or junctions.

These features, combined with the partitioning approach, permit clean room installation, so that the clean area can be pressurized and kept separate from the technical area.
