Detectamet’s New Steri-99.9® Disinfectant Wipes in a Detectable Pack

30 June 2014

The latest products from Detectamet are the Steri-99.9® Disinfectant Wipes that are packaged using a tub, a lid and a dispenser cap which are metal and X-ray detectable. 

If they get mislaid and broken up into finished products then the detection systems at the end of the packing line will identify and reject the products before they get to the retailer. The new blue wipes are available in two sizes. There are small probe wipes and the larger disinfection and sanitising wipes for general multi-surface sterilisation. 

Steri-99.9® Disinfectant Surface & Probe Wipes incorporate a specifically formulated disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria in seconds and they are supplied in re-sealable tubs and in refill packs containing 200 individual wipes.

The wipes have been stipulated for use in the food industry so they are non-perfumed and do not use alcohol in the formulation.  The advanced multi-surface cleaner and sanitizer contains a combination of the fastest acting and most powerful germ killing products available today so that it can achieve a 99.9% microbiological kill within 30 seconds and yet it contains no irritants within its formulation.

Using the latest advanced barrier technology Steri-99.9® not only achieves a rapid kill of bacteria and viruses, but creates a residual barrier on the treated surface that can continue to work for at least 30 days after the initial application.

These wipes are fully compliant with EU requirements, and the blue wipe material has a low lint characteristic, is non-flammable and has been tested and acknowledged to be food safe. No personal protective equipment is needed because it is skin safe and it is effective against a wide range of bacteria and viruses, including C. Diff, MRSA, E. coli, Salmonella, Legionella and Listeria.

“We provide our customers with a one stop shop on detectability,” says Sean Smith who is Detectamet’s CEO, “and by adding the Steri-99.9®range to our new catalogue we are adding detectability to disinfection.”

Sean went on to explain; “The lids and caps are not only available in our Detectamet Blue for Food Visibility but they are also to be UK made in eight more colours to support colour coding systems that identify plant location.

The combination of detectable packaging and ready to use disinfectant wipes ticks several boxes within the requirement of a food HACCP management system and within the requirement of a health and safety system. The specification of ready to use wipes obviates the risks of mixing dangerous, excessively strong or ineffectively weak chemicals and saves money on the labour costs of mixing, dosing or dispensing of chemicals. 

Detectamet has also designed some Detectable Wipe Stations that can hold one or two tubs of wipes and can be mounted on a handy wall. These will help to keep the work areas free of clutter and further reduce the risk of mislaying the tubs and the possibility of contamination. These are also available in nine different colours.
