12 Considerations of Customized Dunnage Washing Programs
Tote, bin, pallet, container, and dunnage washing is vital to many industries including automotive and other manufacturing sectors.
In fact, dunnage washing is really just as important as cleaning the parts during the manufacturing process. Otherwise, you are putting new, clean manufactured parts into a dirty container – and you end up with contaminated parts.
Dunnage washing between uses ensures that parts are delivered to their end destination in pristine, clean, dry condition. It also helps extend the life of your storage containers – which reduces shrinkage costs in the long run.
Why Dunnage Washing Must Be Customized
But dunnage washing is much more than just rinsing off containers. Dunnage comes in various shapes, sizes, and materials all of which require specialized attention to achieve optimal cleaning results.
Similarly, dunnage dirt and contamination come in many forms – including chips, dust, shavings, soluble coolant, dirt, oil, grease, dust, and other contaminants. The right cleaning method and products must be chosen specifically for the type of dirt or debris that is being removed.
Additionally, different manufacturers will have different specifications as well as differing regulatory requirements – including ISO and environmental compliance.
For this reason, it is essential to choose a dunnage washing partner who has the knowledge and the experience to customize a dunnage washing program specifically for your facility’s unique needs.
