10 years after its global launch, Lagafors’® CCS concept continues to strongly influence the market. With more than 200 systems sold so far, we at Lagafors are convinced that central dosing of chemical solutions is the right path for larger and heavier food-processing industries.
Lagafors Central Cleaning System, CCS, enables the food industry to obtain ultimate hygiene at reduced cost and
environmental impact, in a good working setting. The CCS is made up of five main components that together
meet high demands for capacity, performance and quality.
By combining the components in the CCS, which comprises our VCC II (Variable Chemical Centre) chemical centre and various types of water pump centres, customers can reduce their costs by up to 35% compared to most existing cleaning systems and cleaning methods. These savings, and a decreased environmental impact, are achieved thanks to reduced use of warm water and chemicals and less wastewater generated.
The central components provide the correct pressure, flow and chemical concentration, where needed, for up to 20 simultaneous users.
The water pump centre and the VCC II chemical centre are normally placed in a centrally located
area. Pipes and hoses then run throughout the factory feeding all the satellite stations. Each satellite station consists of a hose reel with hose for water, chemicals and disinfectant. The central dosing and storage of chemicals enables safe handling with no concentrated chemicals in the production areas. Service, maintenance and settings are made in one central place.
“We had 25 years’ experience of centralized cleaning systems when we decided to launch the CCS
concept in 2006. During these 10 years, we have also upgraded the system twice, which will keep Lagafors at the cutting edge of centralized cleaning in the food-processing industry,” says Martin Johansson, Product Manager at Lagafors.
