Reaching some hard to clean areas

23 March 2020

Even with the best hygiene regime facilities with ageing belts and equipment can still struggle to ensure that contaminates are removed during the cleaning process. Equipment can harbour mould, bacteria and pathogens which can then affect the quality and shelf life of the product. So how do you reach the harder to clean areas? 

Air sterilisation and a well designed airflow can ensure that the air inside the production facility is removing 99% of airborne contaminates. High risk areas such as packaging rooms require appropriately sterilised, positive-pressure airflow, compared with basic Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) areas.

Air touches everywhere, including the product & production surfaces, inside the moving parts of belts, behind equipment, even people on the production lines, so harnessing the air to sterilise the area makes sense. However not all air sterilisation products are able to remove surface spoilage microorganisms, pathogens and viruses. 

So, when selecting an air sterilisation system, look for one with active oxygen clusters, which allows for the sterilisation of surfaces as well as air. Bio-Oxygen Europe can offer just such a solution. It sterilises the air and surfaces, eliminates odour and bi-aerosols by using just the oxygen found naturally in the ambient air. In airborne tests this solution has been shown to offer 99% reductions and 90% reductions in surface swabs.

A national bakery, for example used Bio-Oxygen to remove mould from its spiral cooler and belts, an artisan dairy saw a reduction in their mould on its soft cheese while a national chicken producer was able to achieve a significant reception of TVC while also continuously cleaning its production equipment.

Oxygen is the only gas which can be magnetised using electrons. Using this technology, Bio-Oxygen harnesses the use of electrons, rearranging the oxygen in the air to oxygen clusters which then bombard micro-organisms with thousands of electron shots – to which there is no immunity.

Bio-Oxygen can help minimise the risks from airborne contamination by infectious pathogens such as Salmonella Listeria, E. coli; and toxigenic pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus and clostridia; as well as and spoilage microorganisms such as yeast, moulds, pseudomonad and lactic acid bacteria.
