Equipment maintenance


Like all equipment, isothermal ROLL require regular maintenance in order to keep them in good working order.

Unlike a traditional transport device (truck), or handling (forklift), no parameter such as the number of kilometers or number of driving hours can serve as a benchmark for maintenance operations and frequency.

While being legally assimilated to transport vehicles, isothermal ROLL are handling containers. In addition to the usual wear and tear, which depends on the delicacy of handling, maintenance must also deal with the consequences of shocks and accidents linked to intensive handling in a multi-stakeholder circuit (warehouse, trucks, stores).

Visual observation and a few simple manipulations are the means to assess the technical condition of the container in order to decide whether or not maintenance is necessary. Also, before each use of your container, we invite you to check the fixing of the seal by passing your finger between its lips.



Using a dirty container increases the risk of food contamination, which is why we recommend that you implement an effective washing protocol.

As most foodstuffs are prepackaged, cleaning the container between each rotation is not necessary, except for special reason, such as a spilled product.

The use must take into account the peculiarities of its activity to determine the best method and frequency for cleaning ROLLs.

The cleaning can be done by high pressure (hand washing) or by automated washing at a maximum temperature of 60 ° C. As with a car, the high-pressure washing must be done at a distance of more than 80cm.
