Manual Cleaning

Question:
What is immersion manual cleaning?

Answer:
Manual cleaning can be done in-place on manufacturing equipment or at a sink or washroom where disassembled pieces of equipment, tools and utensils are brought for cleaning. Often brushes, abrasive pads, scrapers, buckets, spray bottles, or other appropriate equipment is used for manual cleaning. A good manual cleaning procedure will specify any pre-rinsing, the cleaner concentration, the order which parts of a particular piece of equipment should be cleaned and the rinsing procedures. The advantage of manual cleaning is that it is relatively simple and the operator can give special attention to difficult-to-clean areas or residue until clean criteria is achieved. The disadvantage is that it can take longer, has the cost of human labor, and is very directly subject to human error.
