Using a distinctive concentration of chlorine dioxide it provides specific microbiological control for the food and beverage industry, such as brewing and bottling, washing fruit and vegetables, poultry and meat processing, fish processing and dairy plants. Chlorine dioxide does not react with most “organics” in flume water; this makes it a very effective disinfectant. It is also an excellent odor neutralizer, helping to neutralize foul smelling odors including secondary and tertiary amines formed in the meat packing industry.
A list of possible markets to apply Dutrion products are:
- Fruit and vegetable processing.
- Poultry processing.
- Food contact paper manufacture.
- Cleaning pasteurizers, warmers and coolers.
- Disinfection of packing operations.
- Flume water control.
- Water treatment.
- Equipment disinfection.
- Disinfection of tankers, vehicles and transportation vessels.
Cleaning in place (CIP) and sanitizing operations
Active chlorine dioxide can be very effective when used as the final sanitizing rinse in CIP systems, including filler rooms. Typically applied at low concentrations with a short contact time. It leaves no toxic residues to interfere with other chemical/biochemical processes. Chlorine dioxide works quickly and breaks down into inert compounds. Its unique chemistry produces no toxic by-products (such as THM’s) and is therefore an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional sanitizers.
