Washing and handling of pallets

At SEMI STAAL we develop and produce machines for washing and handling pallets. We do this in co-operation with you, for you to get exactly the pallet washer that meets your requirements.

We provide all kinds of solutions – from small stand-alone pallet washers to fully automated integrated washing systems. All our washing machines are modular and manufactured according to HACCP principles.

Our mission is to help you increase your throughput time, strengthen food safety and create better working environments – with a sustainable profile.

All pallet washing systems can be extended with

  • Up/down stackers
  • Drying systems
  • Storage systems
  • Conveyor systems

Pallet washing systems in all sizes

Compact PVH pallet washer

The PVH washer is a horizontal washing module for pallets. The module can be expanded and automated as required fx in case of blow-off or automatic up/down stacking.

If space is an issue, this solution is ideal with an infeed and outfeed conveyor. The washing system is a recirculating system. 

Fully automated PVH with pre-rinse and integrated high pressure

Fully automated pallet washer with up/down stacker, conveyor system and blow-off drier. The washing system is provided with a recirculating pre-rinse and a powerful washing section with integrated high-pressure cleaner to remove labels and solid dirt. After washing and blow drying, the pallets are stacked. The system is customised to the specific task.


The PVV washer is a vertical washing module for pallets. The module can be expanded and automated as required. The vertical version is extra space saving. A series of heating and filter systems can be added.

Fully automated pallet washing and handling system

Buffer conveyor

A stack of unclean pallets is fed into the system and waits for the down stacker to be free, then the stack is moved to the pallet down stacker.

Down stacker

Automatic down stacking of pallets.


After being blow-off dryed the pallets are stacked.

Buffer conveyor

A stack of clean pallets is accumulated on the unloading conveyor and awaits pick-up. Track system can be integrated with AGV or existing track system.


This central washer module is equipped with a recirculating pre-rinse section, a recirculating washing section and a after-rinse section as standard. Several types of heating sources, filter types, pump pressures and nozzles can be added, and a number of advantageous options make the system extremely customisable.


A pre-rinse removes the worst residues before washing. A recirculating pre-rinse can help you reduce your water consumption.


After washing, an after-rinse will rinse the pallet to ensure it is pH neutral.

Blow-off drying

Before the pallet is to be recycled, the pallet is dried with a blow-off dryer to remove any remaining moisture from the washing process. This is done to eliminate bacterial growth.


We listen to your requirements and offer a range of handling solutions such as conveyors, turners and transfer systems that can be fully or partially integrated with your own logistics.
