The installation of a Panamatic 700 unit – a purpose-designed washing machine facility from specialist manufacturer Oliver Douglas – is helping one of the South-East’s fastest developing producers of Chinese and Japanese bakery products, Sun Fung Food Products Ltd. to increase throughput to match growth arising from developments to both its geographical market catchment and a greater customer range it is now targeting.

The Panamatic 700 system, which is fabricated from stainless steel, has a large capacity wash tank – that in turn minimises the need for water changes – and the benefit of thermostatically controlled electric heating, has been installed as a stand-alone unit in a dedicated wash down area within Sun Fung Food Products’ new 15,000 sq. ft. London premises. Able to accommodate a wide range of food preparation items in the single chamber, the unit achieves optimum washing via a series of spray arms, which direct the wash process to all areas and surfaces.

“We are now able to optimise our washing procedures through a single, highly effective facility,” comments Vivien Wong, Director of Sun Fung Food Products Ltd. “Items are loaded into the Panamatic as their use is complete and, once loaded, the unit then follows a pre-programmed sequence to produce fully cleaned equipment for the next production operation.”
