The Herbold Hot Wash System from Herbold Meckesheim USA, Smithfield, R.I., initially designed for PET bottles, now processes a variety of other items, including thermoformed foils, trays and foil used in the packaging industry.

Every Herbold Hot Wash System is custom configured to best suit the needs of the application using a variety of components, which may include multi-chamber separation tanks, friction washers, turbo washers, mechanical and/or thermal dryers, etc.

Typically, systems are used in-line as part of a continuous process. However, the hot wash process can take place offline, allowing users to adjust dwell time in agitation tanks to achieve the desired level of cleanliness.
