Washdown Stations

Steam and water washdown station 300x120 - Washdown StationsCleaning food processing machinery, chemical tanks, and equipment is not always easy. Using old pressure-balancing technology that relies on multiple moving parts, conventional industrial hose stations are prone to premature failure due to mineral deposits and scaling. The regular maintenance of these units, necessary to keep them running safely, is very time-consuming and costly.

ThermOmegaTech®’s innovative washdown solutions include various high-temperature sanitation and maintenance equipment necessary for industrial facilities to ensure the quality of food and consumable products made available to the public adhere to FDA sanitation requirements. This includes steam and water washdown stations, hot water mixing stations, washdown guns, washdown hoses, and ensuring organization and security of equipment – washdown enclosures.

STVM® Steam & Water Washdown Station

STVM Washdown Station 168x300 - Washdown StationsThe STVM® Washdown Station provides an effective high-temperature wash in an easy-to-maintain package. Utilizing our patented Silent Venturi Mixing Valve (STVM®) technology, this washdown station mixes steam and water to produce a high-powered wash at a user-defined temperature. The mixing valve is self-scouring to prevent mineral buildup in tight spaces, decreasing maintenance frequency. The station is in-line serviceable to reduce additional time spent on regular maintenance. The user simply switches out the STVM® cartridge with a replacement, and the unit is back up and running in minutes.

Safety is our priority, which is why every STVM® Washdown Station has two built-in safety features – interlocking ball valves to prevent steam-only operation and an automatic shut-off when output is 15°F over the unit’s temperature set-point (either 150°F or 185°F) or when cold water flow is interrupted.
