BOHRER
Crate Washing Systems
Perfect hygiene solutions
for the beverage industry
Breweries, mineral water bottling plants, the soft drinks industry and dairies are demanding ever-increasing standards in
terms of the hygiene and aesthetic cleanliness of their transport containers. This is because perfect product presentation
at the Point of Sale is becoming increasingly important.
At BOHRER we have already been specialising in the efficient
and economical cleaning of plastic crates for over 40 years.
With our practical and innovative construction designs, we
have played a significant role in influencing developments in
the crate washing sector from the very start and today we are
the worldwide leading specialist for hygienically cleaned
containers.

Durable and future-proof –
Made in Germany
Unlike any other crate washing machines, BOHRER crate
washers are truly impressive in terms of their concise and
sustainable „long-life concept“. Manufactured entirely from
stainless steel, with state-of-the-art, energy-saving components and a programmable control system – our machines
are an investment in the future. Modifications and upgrades
are possible at any time and are already taken into account
in the machine design.
Efficient and economical – for small
and large performance capacities
Three tried and tested cleaning concepts ensure maximum
cleanliness and exceptionally careful crate handling.
BOHRER TW Series Crate Washer
This type of crate washer offers high performance with
maximum care of the crates. The double-end machine with
immersion soaking bath consists of three cleaning levels
one upon the other.
BOHRER TR Series Crate Washer
The single-end machine with immersion soaking bath
consists of two cleaning levels one upon the other. As the
crates enter and exit the front side of the machine, it is ideal
for areas where space is restricted.
BOHRER R Series Crate Washer
Conventional tunnel washer for universal use.
BOHRER Bespoke Systems
On the basis of these three crate washing concepts, we are
able to design and deliver a bespoke system tailored to individual customer requirements. We are able to think beyond
boundaries in all sectors.

Our cleaning technologies – modular for
use with every container type and every performance capacity
Individually specialised, in combination the guarantee for hygiene and cleanliness
All our technologies and components are tried and tested
and meet our „Made in Germany“ stringent quality
standards. Depending on the performance and cleaning
requirements, these technologies are used in our cleaning
machines which handle the crate with care.
Instead of undefined high pressure, which in just a few
cleaning cycles can cause colours to fade, we use a combiCoarse dirt removal
Coarse dirt, bottles and
broken glass are already
removed in special crate
turning stations before
the crate enters the
washer.
PET discharge device
We safely remove PET
non-returnable bottles
that have become deformed, gummed up or
wedged in the case with
maximum efficiency before they enter the case
washing machine.
nation of cleaning modules in our crate washers which has
been tried and tested.
In this way, we are able to gently yet thoroughly clean
standard crates, as well as crates with high quality logos
and intricate compartments, to ensure they maintain their
appearance and have a lengthy service life.
Pre-spraying with
label removal
An external or integrated
high pressure unit with
special nozzles removes
highly adhesive labels,
bar codes, price labels,
stickers, etc.
Turbo immersion
soaking bath
The most gentle and
effective method of
soaking all dirt is in our
heat insulated energysaving immersion
soaking bath which
features a turbulent hot
lye flow.
Blowing unit for
retained water
Patented spray
nozzle system
In the lower and medium
capacity range, we use a retained water blowing unit
which is integrated into the
machine. The air knife can
be individually adjusted to
suit different types of crate
designs.
Regardless of whether they
are used for rinsing or for
high pressure label removal
– our patented nozzles with
a bayonet mounting can be
adjusted to any container and
distribute the spray water
evenly from all sides over the
entire crate geometry.
Crate drying
Intensive spraying
In the high capacity
range, we use an external
drying module which has
a high performance blower
with efficient nozzle layout to ensure the crates
are dried 100%.
In combination with our
turbulent immersion
bath, the individual
crates are thoroughly
cleaned from all sides.
For crates which are
extremely dirty, we can
additionally use special
high pressure systems.

Modular – single or dual-line
dual-line
(top view)
Our TW, TR and R Series can be designed as a single or dual-line
system depending on the performance capacity required. This
means that we are able to provide a suitable machine in every
performance range. At the same time, the advantages such
as a clear layout, accessibility and ease of operation in routine
cleaning still apply.

If you have a standard crate which is only slightly soiled then
a tunnel machine such as the BOHRER R Series is the ideal system to meet your requirements. For crates with high quality
logos and construction designs with areas that are difficult
to clean and require a lengthier treatment time, we recommend our machines with two (Series TR) or three (Series TW)
cleaning levels.
Careful crate transportation
Our crate washers handle the crates with the utmost of care, and
this includes transporting the crates through the machines. For
crate transportation, we use high quality stainless steel hinged
slat chains and in the turning units we use our patented plastic
clamping system. Guide rails which can be adjusted without
tools, enable different types and designs of containers to be
cleaned.
Continuous dirt removal
Labels which have been removed and are floating around in
the turbulent immersion bath, are captured by a continuously
operating, plastic filter belt and transported out of the machine,
where they can then be disposed of in a transport container/dirt
removal truck.
The cleaning medium (lye) has to pass through the dirt removal
unit, where the coarse dirt is removed, before the medium is
passed back into the washer.

Our technology: innovative and functional
– Made in Germany
We are experts in stainless steel,
durability and functionality
Intelligent design – for maximum
hygiene and easy servicing
As a German manufacturer with a wide breadth of production, in our housings we only use stainless steel which
is unrivalled in terms of resilience, durability and easy
maintenance. Manufacturing is carried out by our skilled
metalworkers exclusively in our own production facilities.
Unlike any other crate washer, our machines feature a clear
and concise design, both in the interior and exterior. Smooth
surfaces, minimal piping, spacious and easily accessible
service compartments for pumps, high pressure blowers and
filters, along with generously dimensioned hinged windows
or motorised windows are the hallmarks of the BOHRER
crate washers.
Quick-emptying device for sludge removal
– for continuous three-shift operation
To ensure that machine cleaning is kept as simple as possible,
and to effectively extend the service life of the lye, the patented
BOHRER quick-emptying device for sludge removal is installed in
each immersion bath.
Hi-tech continuous filtration –
for lengthy service life of lye
For the automatic filtration of solids and suspended matter in
the washing lye, we use special filters which continuously filter
the lye, even during backwashing. They are integrated into the
piping system, which means that they are easy to service and
provide considerable water savings as the lye does not need to
be changed as often.
CIP cleaning – for labour-saving, multi-shift operation
In order to make the weekly, time-consuming process of cleaning
the machine as efficient as possible, we offer a sophisticated CIP
cleaning system as an accessory for our crate washers. This is
integrated into the machine and guarantees the maintenance of
hygiene without the use of additional labour.
Future-oriented electronics –
for reliable functioning and simple operation
We only use high quality systems from top international manufacturers in our drives and control modules. The machine programming is carried out by our own electronics specialists. They
not only ensure that the crate washer operates smoothly but will
also link it in with existing plant.
And, on request, we will of course install remote maintenance.

Our compact special design is ideal for
medium-sized companies in the beverage industry and, in terms of its cleaning
concept, cleaning performance and high
quality design, is on a par with the TR high
performance machines.
The difference lies in the crate throughput speed, which in this case is lower and
therefore requires a shorter handling route.
We can achieve capacities of 1,000 to 2,500
crates/h with this machine concept. As
the crates are discharged at the top of the
machine, this design is suitable for a barrierfree arena installation.
