tight corners


Explanation:
this refers to parts which are shaped such that flushing out with water might not be effective enough; "tight corners" or "inaccessible parts" might work as a translation.

parts with complicated shapes that are hard/difficult to access


Explanation:
I am assuming that we are talking about a container/tank for food products.

After/following the desinfection process, which should be performed with an acid-free desinfectant, the container/tank must be throughly rinsed with water and for parts with complicated shapes that are hard/difficult to access additional neutralizing agents must be applied/used.

Hope this helps.
