Food Processing

Usage of a distinctive concentration of chlorine dioxide 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 neutralize foul smelling odors including secondary and tertiary amines formed in the meat packing industry.

Some of the possible food processing markets where Dutrion products can be applied 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. It is typically applied at low concentrations with a short contact time. Chlorine dioxide leaves no toxic residues to interfere with other chemical/biochemical processes. Furthermore, chlorine works quickly and breaks down into inert compounds. Its unique chemistry produces no toxic by-products (such as THM’s) and chlorine dioxide is therefore an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional sanitizers.

Other examples of sanitizing applications for Dutrion products are:

Dutrion products can also be used for cleaning pasteurizers, bottle/can warmers and coolers. In bakeries, Dutrion products can be used as chain and conveyor spray. Moreover, they can be used for washing crates, bottles and the hands of staff members. Dutrion products can be applied for water purification and disinfection of water distribution and storage tanks. Furthermore, they can be used for mould and odor control. Another application of Dutrion products is sanitation of tanker trucks, wagons and transportation vessels. There are many more applications of Dutrion products for food processing. Please ask one of our local agents or forward us a contact sheet if you are considering using Dutrion products for your application. Use the Dutrion products only according to local registered label claims.
