  • Wash Down

    Stainless steel lift equipment and galvanized finishes for sanitary application requirements.


Material lifts solutions able to withstand regular spray-washing without affecting the safety, performance, or longevity of the equipment

Special attention must be given to equipment exposed to water. Outdoor installations exposed to rain, and installations exposed to washing inside processing plants, consideration must be given to all primary design features to ensure water will not prematurely disable or destroy the equipment or result in personnel injury.

Available material lift design solutions protect critical features, such as the electrical circuit and components, hydraulic fluid, bushings and bearings, and paint finish.

Personnel safety is Autoquip's top priority. We have an experienced technical staff and team of design engineers that are well-acquainted with the requirements for equipment lifts that must be located outdoors or in a wash down environment.

  • Typical lifting and handling solutions that Autoquip has designed and manufactured for wash down applications include:

    All Stainless Steel Lift Special scissor lift table design used in the manufacturing of chocolate.
