Complete Mobile Sanitation

Food truck commissaries and independent food truck operators alike need an inexpensive, yet efficient method to keep their fleet of food trucks clean inside and out. Most facilities are looking for efficient cleaners who can sanitize the interior and detail the exterior of the entire fleet, without compromising quality of work. As health and fire regulations remain rigid, contract cleaners have found a new method to sanitize kitchens and food trucks while meeting health codes and wastewater regulations: steam.

Dry steam has emerged as the top sanitizing agent in the commercial cleaning industry as restaurants have been consulting steam-based janitorial operations to sanitize their kitchen. Given how the equipment layout of mobile caterers are similar to restaurants, commissaries are following suit as they see dry steam as the most viable, quickest, and safest cleaning option for their trucks.

Optima Steamer, food truck applications

Recommended Model: Optima DMF Steamer

Built-in Reliability

Greatly reduce facility downtime from cleaning and increase your production efficiency. Steam requires very little to no preparation prior to cleaning or sanitizing. The Optima Steamer is pressurized and heated to 352°F, making it ready to steam for all day use in as little as 6 minutes*. Reach hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, and tackle those harborage areas without generating overspray or puddles of waste water.

Optima’s dry steam with gentle pressure can safely clean the most sensitive equipment components such as control panels, conveyor belts, HVAC coils and screens, walk-in coolers and freezers. Eliminate multiple steps of preparing, washing, soaping, rinsing, drying and cleaning up wastewater. Less downtime means more production and increased efficiency.

An Eco-friendly Solution

The danger of foodborne pathogens poses the greatest health risk challenges for commercial restaurants and mobile food truck operations. With smaller preparation, cooking and cleaning area, food truck commissaries and independent food truck operators can greatly benefit from the compact effectiveness of vapor-steam sanitation. The “superheated steam” produced by the Optima Steamer sanitizes and eliminates hazardous food-borne bacteria. With no chemicals and no wastewater run off, dry steam is the most efficient cleaning solution for mobile food facilities. Most of pathogens are known to be eliminated at 160°F. The Optima Steamer is able to produce constant hot dry steam ranging from 212~240°F at the nozzle tip, ensuring total sanitation of unwanted micro-organisms. The Optima Steamer is equipped with a moisture control valve that allows you to increase moisture level when necessary (e.g. cleaning heavy grease, icing, chocolate residues). Clean and sanitize food processing equipment and machinery more effectively than a pressure washer or heavy duty chemicals.
