Foam Cleaning System Cleans, Disinfects In Half The Time
A new foam cleaning system cleans barns and stock trucks in half the time and does a more thorough job of disinfecting, according to the company that introduced the new system at the recent Iowa Pork Congress in Des Moines.
The "Foam-It Clean" system consists of a two-wheel cart that carries a 15-gal. tank and a 30-ft. hose and nozzle. You need a 3 to 4 hp air compressor to power a small air-driven pump which produces the foam. The system operates at approximately 40 psi's. No electricity is required.
You simply apply a layer of foam to what-ever you want to clean and let it soak in. After 10 or 15 minutes, you wash it off with a conventional power washer.
It works better than pre-soaking with a power washer since the foam adheres to the surface better and stays in place longer than a liquid. And it's easier to see where the detergent has - and has not - been applied, notes Foam-It Clean's Dan Jacques.
The system is also ideal for applying disinfectants, Jacques notes, since the foam stays in place so much longer.
Sells for $680. Detergent sells for $12 per gal.
