Most food processing facilities currently use a combination of different chemicals for all surface and machine disinfection. They periodically rotate the use of different sanitizers to prevent the harmful microorganisms from building a resistance to their killing properties. Unfortunately facilities are still experiencing pathogen outbreaks. Chlorine dioxide’s unique killing ability does not allow for the build up of resistance or mutation, and therefore eliminates the need for all of the other chemicals. Chlorine dioxide is effective for use in controlling microbiological growth in flume waters and other food processing water systems such as chill water systems and hydrocoolers.
Water is one of the single biggest raw materials used in meat processing, and its quality is of great importance to prevent contamination of food product. The use of contaminated water in the processing plant can spread infection across the whole food batch. This is a cause of serious concern to the food industry, consumers and regulatory bodies, besides that, it causes financial losses and food scare. Chlorine dioxide, a very powerful biocide, has a number of advantages over other products commonly used in the meat processing industry. When properly applied, chlorine dioxide can act as a break in contamination thereby reducing/eliminating cross contamination as well as removing superficial microorganisms before they have an opportunity to become attached and penetrate the carcass.
A brewery process presents one of the biggest challenges possible to a microbiological control program. Microorganisms are responsible for both the production and the degradation of the product. Microbial control is also critical for production and filling equipment. A brewing environment offers various applications where chlorine dioxide may be employed, like as terminal sanitizing rinse in the CIP systems or sanitizer for pasteurizers or filler head assemblies.
