The cannabis industry presents many very specialized and potentially difficult cleaning challenges, from the laboratory all the way through sophisticated large-scale commercial manufacturing processes. The sticky resins encountered every step along the process are legend. Critical cleaning detergents can provide solutions to a wide range of hard surfaces from delicate laboratory glassware, processing tools and irrigation lines, to the extraction vessels and clean-in-place (CIP) manufacturing tanks. We use the term critical cleaning to denote situations where the level of cleaning directly impacts the value of the product or results.
This presentation covers critical cleaning basics, detergent chemistries, and helpful cleaning mechanisms. The presentation concludes with several helpful real-world cleaning studies, cost savings analysis, and before/after pictures sourced from current customers.
