Chlorine Dioxide for Food and Produce Sanitation

Fruits and vegetables can be a source of disease due to infection from contaminated water. Using chlorine dioxide (ClO2) can improve sanitation and disinfection and, in the case of food and produce, offers the added benefit of not leaving residue.

Flume

When water is used in the flume application, several benefits occur, including a reduction in the number of bacteria and fungus in the water and an increase in the amount of filth and dirt removed as the product is moved.

CIP Sanitizer

For clean-in-place (CIP) applications, water is injected directly into a facility's fluid distribution network and circulated for a set duration of time. Compared with traditional chlorine chemicals or hot water, overall chemical costs are reduced, sewage disposal costs are lowered or eliminated, and system deterioration is diminished.

Canneries

Chlorine dioxide has many uses in canneries relating to sanitizing and cleaning at the various food processing stages.
