Your cleaning service for containers


Your washing center for containers made of plastic and other non-organic materials

Reusable plastic containers and pallets get dirty during use and need to be cleaned from time to time. In most cases, the company's own infrastructure does not offer suitable means to clean containers in larger quantities rationally and in accordance with the quality requirements.

Our experience in washing plastic containers pays off for you

Since its foundation in 1995, Pooltec AG in Bremgarten, Aargau, has developed into a leading washing specialist with a wealth of experience. We are competent professionals for cleaning all types of containers, trays and pallets made of plastic and other non-organic materials. Pooltec AG offers the possibility to wash containers with base areas from 200x150 mm up to 1200x1000 mm with a maximum height of 600 mm.

Services beyond washing containers

On request, we offer the sorting out of defective containers or the removal of labels. We commission your containers for collection according to your wishes. Our flexibility with regard to the delivery and collection time of your containers is part of our standard service.

Detergent Savings

The special water routing within the washing zones allows us to reduce the amount of detergent added. In addition, an electronic control for the detergent concentration permanently monitors the controlled wash liquor regeneration. Thanks to these measures, we achieve detergent savings of up to 70% compared to conventional water flow systems.

Exhaust air heat recovery WR and heat pump HP

The cold water for the post-purge flows first through the condensation unit (exhaust air cooler) and is preheated to a temperature of approx. 35°C. The exhaust air is cooled and dehumidified at the same time. The exhaust air is simultaneously cooled and dehumidified.

The waste heat from the rinse water fed directly from the Duplo rinse zone into the prewash zone is utilized in the double-walled heat exchanger.

An integrated heat pump heats the water again to approx.75°C by means of steam phrases. Subsequently, the rinse water is heated to approx. 85°C for post-rinse in the boiler.

In the double-walled heat exchanger, the waste heat of the rinse water fed directly from the Duplo rinse zone into the prewash zone is used.
