Tetra Pak® catches around 10 litres of dirt in a month!

Tetra Pak relies on the ProfilGate cleaning system to reduce dirt from forklifts & Co. 


Tetra Pak specialises in complete solutions for the processing, packaging and distribution of food products. With its motto PROTECTS WHAT IS GOOD™, the company fulfils its vision of making food safe and available everywhere. Tetra Pak now employs around 25,000 people worldwide. 

Carton packaging for liquid foods is produced at the Limburg site in Germany. The company is BRC - Global Standard for Food Safety - certified and must fulfil the highest food safety requirements. When looking for a way to reduce dirt in the warehouse, they came across ProfilGate. Gratings fitted with brushes are placed in the dirt collection trays built into the floor. When driving over the field, the dirt that is caught by the brushes is collected in trays and can be conveniently swept or vacuumed out after removing the grates. 

ProfilGate® has been in use at Tetra Pak in Limburg since 2015. It was installed in the hall entrance in front of an internal gate. With around 240 passes by large and small forklift trucks and electric ants every day, the cleaning area is used intensively.

The field is cleaned weekly. At the beginning of this year, Tetra Pak® collected the dirt from the stainless steel trays over a period of twelve weeks and collected an impressive 27.5 litres. On a monthly basis, around 10 litres of dirt can be collected before it reaches the warehouse.


"Major soiling from forklift tyres has been a thing of the
a thing of the past!"
