To complement the existing lineup of automated bin washers, Douglas Machines developed a new model that has the flexibility to wash and sanitize two stainless-steel or plastic bins at the same time, eliminating the need to buy two separate machines to double the throughput. The Douglas Model BW-2000 saves water, chemicals and labor while reducing the incidence of injury normally associated with trying to hand wash these types of heavy containers.
