Eurocold Pluritank 70/80P

This unique cleaning system is pre-programmed to properly cleanse your items prior to coating. The items are loaded into a basket and the robotic arm transfers the contents automatically through the machine. This process helps ensure that all items being coated are free from particles, dirt, and other potentially problematic contaminants.
