    Utensil Spray Washing Machine Detergent used in automatic tray-washing machines will efficiently remove
    such soils as protein deposits, vegetable debris, baking soils, electrostatic dust, etc. from aluminium, timber
    and plastic food processing trays. Utensil Spray Washing Machine Detergent contains unique redeposition
   agents to stop soils adhering to trays during cleaning. The product neutralises electrostatic charge on plastic
   trays so eliminating contamination by light dust during use. Corrosion inhibitors are incorporated into Utensil
    Spray Washing Machine Detergent to protect the machine's metal surfaces. A further use for Utensil Spray
   Washing Machine Detergent is for the washing of surgical instruments which will efficiently remove all stains
   and soils such as blood, bone marrow, dried tissue, etc. Because Utensil Spray Washing Machine Detergent
  is a specially formulated non-caustic detergent containing corrosion inhibitors, the product is safe to use on all
                instruments containing aluminium or alloy components, even at boiling temperatures.

                                      CLEANING PROCEDURE
     Utensil Spray Washing Machine Detergent is injected into the utensil washing machine, tray-washer, or
  dishwashing machine automatically by control equipment supplied on free loan by GWP Group of Companies.
    The recommended concentration for Utensil Spray Washing Machine Detergent is between 0.25% to 0.5%
      depending on hardness of water and types of soils to be removed. Water analysis and recommended
      concentration is determined individually by your GWP Group representative. Recommended detergent
