First the eggs are taken through a washing section, where they are rotated so all sides of the eggs are cleaned with water and soap under high pressure. With the washing of eggs you have to discard fewer eggs, and therefore more eggs are ready to be packed.
This machine also sorting the eggs if they are not probably clean after wash.

The machine is a fully automatic, made for washing and disinfection of boxes, lids and trays in hospital and pharmaceutical industry. The whole system consists of 9 sections-chambers, and the machine works in steps. First step is loading of items, which can be done manually by operator, or automatically by the robot. After loading is completed, and all the items have been placed on a proper position on a chain, whole set is moved to the pre-wash chamber. Here, we are starting to wash items with cold water, and at the same time, removing the labels from the boxes, using high pressure system (180 bar). Next chamber is main wash, where the items are washed with hot water mixed with special detergent. Both pre-wash and main wash are equipped with nozzles installed on rotating pipes, which guarantee that all area is covered, and that washing results are on very high level. After this section, there is a rinsing chamber. Next on the line is disinfection, using combination of steam and ultrasound. This kind of disinfection has a lot of benefits, as fast treatment, no chemicals, no post-treatment wash… Sections 6-9 are drying sections, where in the first step water is blown away from the items by high-pressure blower, and then in next three steps evaporate under high temperature inside the chamber. Last two sections are for cooling and unloading the items. What is important to say is that step time is 55s, and the time for whole cycle is 10 minutes. Machine is equipped with CIP and thermal self-disinfection systems, which simplify maintenance and cleaning.
