Product Information

Does Goodway offer technical assistance or consulting for chemical cleanings?

Yes, we have detailed procedures and technical training available. Contact us for support.

Will dry steam damage mesh belts?

No, dry steam safely cleans mesh belting without any damage to the belt material.

Can BioSpray D2 be used to sanitize freezers and other “frozen” surfaces?

Yes, unlike water-based sanitizers (which freeze near 32°F and are rendered ineffective at such low temperatures), BioSpray D2 has a freezing point of -30°F. This allows BioSpray D2 to readily flow onto and sanitize surfaces that would immediately freeze water-based sanitizers.

Will dry steam damage belts?

The system will not damage belts and will actually prolong belt life thanks to keeping the belts clean. The belt should be moving and the vacuum on before turning on the steam used to clean the belt.  This ensures the integrity of the delicate food-contact coating. We emphasize this during the onsite demo, our training materials, and especially during post-purchase implementation training for your sanitation crew.

Is BioSpray D2 flammable?

BioSpray D2 includes, among other ingredients, 58% isopropyl alcohol. When used with our BioSpray spraying systems, BioSpray D2 is rendered INFLAMMABLE.

However, when not used with our BioSpray spraying systems, care should be taken not to use the product near open flame or combusion soruce.

Where can SaniZide Pro 1 be used?

Use Sanizide Pro 1 on a wide variety of hard nonporous, non-food contact surfaces. Examples include use in healthcare, and EMS, dental facilities, veterinary, commercial business, retail business, offices, fitness centers, manufacturing facilities, educational facilities, daycare centers, funeral homes, and more.

Will the portable brushless system remove allergens?

Yes.  The belt enters our cleaning head, where soils and allergens are broken down and dislodged using dry vapor steam technology that runs the width of the belt.  From there, the soils, allergens, AND residual moisture are immediately extracted using a vacuum, leaving the belt completely clean, dry, and allergen-free.  If you are working with allergens or any changeover, we can do a free onsite demo for you where we can get a positive allergen swab on the belt before entering the belt cleaner and a negative swab as it exits to validate the technology on your production line.

How long does the CO2 tank last?

Depending on the model, and activity usage, the following can be used for total spray time

  • 5lb cylinder: 22 mins
  • 10lb cylinder: 45 mins
  • 20lb cylinder: 90 mins
Will the portable brushless system clean belts in one pass?

Generally, yes. Heavy soils may require two passes to fully clean and pass swabs.  Our fixed brushless system may be better suited for heavy soils as the system cleans during production, not allowing soils the time to harden and ensure a one-pass clean.

Why does Goodway offer three different descaling blends?

Equipment base alloys can range considerably from aluminum, brass, copper, steel, and stainless steel. Our blends ensure the alloys get effectively cleaned and remain safe to the base metals.

What is the recommended process for cleaning rollers and belts?

Our recommendation is to always clean the static parts of the conveyor first, including rollers. This can be accomplished using our industrial dry steam generator systems, the same systems that power the brushless belt cleaning systems. After cleaning static areas, then the belt surface can be cleaned with the brushless system. If rollers are getting heavily soiled, consider choosing the fixed brushless system to prevent rollers from getting soiled in the first place.

What happens to the scale when it comes in contact with ScaleBreak descalers?

The scale is dissolved into a liquid suspension so it can be flushed out of the system.

Can the fixed brushless system clean belts during production?

Yes! The fixed brushless belt cleaning system captures and extracts moisture in addition to soils and allergens.  This leaves a clean, allergen-free, dry belt every time it comes around for a rotation and allows significant production flexibility by continuously cleaning during production.

How is the amount of descaler needed and circulation time determined?

This is determined by the overall volume and severity of scale to be removed from the equipment.  Pump flow rates can also have a corresponding effect. One of our descaler calculators can help you determine this.

Will the fixed portable brushless system remove allergens?

Yes.  The belt enters our cleaning head, where soils and allergens are broken down and dislodged using dry vapor steam technology that runs the width of the belt.  From there, the soils, allergens, AND residual moisture are immediately extracted using a vacuum, leaving the belt completely clean, dry, and allergen-free.  If you are working with allergens or any changeover, we can do a free onsite demo for you where we can get a positive allergen swab on the belt before entering the belt cleaner and a negative swab as it exits to validate the technology on your production line.

What is the impact of scale fouling in equipment?

Scale can cause higher energy consumption, loss of heat transfer, shorter equipment lifespan, unplanned shutdowns.

Can the fixed brushless belt cleaning system be automated to run when we need it?

Yes. Our fixed brushless system can integrate with your systems seamlessly for optimized results and truly hands-free operation. We can accept signals to turn steam and vacuum on/off as the belt moves for automatic on-demand cleaning. Belt mistracking, changeovers, running 24/7, specific product runs of sticky products, whatever your needs, Goodway will meet them.

What is the best way to identify when preventive maintenance needs to be scheduled?

The best way is to chart your equipment performance data on a daily or at least weekly basis so maintenance can be performed before issues occur.

I am an OEM/Belt Manufacturer, or consultant. Can you help design a cleaning system?

Yes, we can. We work with OEM and conveyor belt manufacturers in implementing our Fixed Brushless onto their conveyors during the design phase. We are seeing more customers ask us to work with the OEM to implement Goodway fixed brushless systems during the design phase. This route allows for a more seamless implementation of the fixed brushless for the OEM, the customer, and Goodway. We will work with your team to define and implement the best solutions to exceed your cleaning and sanitation needs.

Our facility has purchased acid for cleanings, why are Goodway descalers better?

All Goodway descalers are blended with inhibitors, wetting, penetrating agents which create balance and offer excellent dissolvability speed, saturation rates.  

Will the JET-4 system clean belts in one pass?

Due to several factors, like speed or width, the number of passes can be determined with an on-site demonstration or consultation. Usually, smaller width belts can be cleaned with one or two passes. For larger width belts with stubborn soils or neglected belts, three to four passes are efficient. 

 

 

 

Where can BIOSPRAY D2 be used?

Use BioSpray D2 on a wide variety of hard nonporous surfaces, including food contact and non-food contact surfaces. Examples include use in commercial business, retail business, offices, fitness centers, food and beverage manufacturing facilities, educational facilities, medical facilities, daycare centers, funeral homes, and more.

Are Goodway’s descalers biodegradable?

Yes, all of our descalers are biodegradable.

Do I need a different JET-4 System for each belt?

No, the portability and customizability of the JET-4 allow you to use the same system from your widest belt down to a 10" belt.

Is BioSpray D2 effective against COVID-19 (aka SARS-CoV-2)
