Bottle Holder Maintenance and Cleaning Tips
Z40 NATURE Adapt Cabinet
Your investment in the Z40 Nature is an important part of your business mix. Keeping your machine in good working order is critical to the ongoing reliability of the Z40.
Maintaining a daily cleaning routine is an important step in the maintenance of your machine.
A couple of points before you start.
- We advise using protective gloves to handle our juicers.
- Cleaning the juice extraction system and front cover at least once a day is advisable. Do not forget to regularly check the peel containers.
- It is not necessary to use specialized products.
- All parts can be washed in the dishwasher (Please Note: front cover to be cleaned by hand).
The front covers of our juicers are comprised of polycarbonate and ABS models.
For this reason, we advise not cleaning them in the dishwasher to prevent scratches or defects.
The Bottle Holder is recommended to be cleaned daily. This can be completed whilst the bottle holder is fully assembled. Once a month it is recommended the bottle holder be cleaned thoroughly with parts disassembled. See below disassemble procedure.
This part is handled by customers, so special attention is recommended. Keeping a spare part is advisable so that it can be changed halfway through the day. This part is in contact with the fruit, so it is advisable to increase washing frequency in spring and summer.
The machines must be cleaned and disinfected as frequently as indicated above. In this process, first, remove all the solid waste, and then clean and disinfect. The following types of products can be used to disinfect the machines:
Descaling detergents/disinfectants for food use: Used either by immersion (small parts) or sprayed (large parts and stainless-steel front of machine) in the concentration recommended by the manufacturer. Each product must be left to act for the time indicated, and then rinsed well to avoid contact of the juice with the product. These products usually have a very high pH, which, with time, may degrade the polycarbonate, so it is advisable not to exceed the product action times on transparent plastic parts.
Chlorinated disinfectant detergents for food use: Same use as the previous products. They can be used by immersion or sprayed, bearing in mind the time recommendations given by the manufacturer. Thoroughly rinse the parts treated before they come in contact with the juice again.
Another option can be solutions with domestic use (4% chlorine) or industrial use (10% chlorine) bleach. The necessary concentration for it to be effective at room temperature is 100 ppm, which means 2.5 ml of domestic bleach for every litre of water, or 1 ml of industrial bleach per litre of water.
