The effective cleaning and disinfection of equipment and critical surfaces is extremely important in order to prevent the contamination of food products during their processing, manufacturing, and packaging.
Failure to properly clean and disinfect surfaces can lead to various problems such as the contamination of food products with microorganisms that can reduce product quality, reduce shelf life through spoilage, or threaten the health of the consumer. In addition, effective cleaning and disinfection can help control bioburden, as well as biofilm formation, in production environments.
When used as an adjunct to effective surface cleaning, Altapure can help your facility maximize its microbial safety and control, and ultimately product safety and regulatory compliance, by offering many defining benefits:
- Clinically proven “No Growth” on ALL treated room surfaces for: Bacterial Spores, Virus, & Vegetative Bacteria.
- Fast treatment time with minimal agent use.
- Gas-Like Interaction / 3-D Contact With Complex Surface Geometries.
- Safe - only 0.88 % H2O2 and 0.18 % PAA (Yes, the hydrogen peroxide is that low).
- Extremely thin film” deposition with sub-micron droplet performance.
- Multi Room Capable - Able to treat connected areas & rooms at same time.
- Complete Coverage Accuracy (no human interaction).
- Complete Coverage Reproducibility (no human interaction).
- Fully automated & remotely controlled process.
- Easily moved and setup by only one (1) individual.
- Wireless control and data reporting to PC
With a very low “D-Value” data for the gold standard medical grade spores of Geobacillus stearothermophilus of 2.3 – 2.6 D-Value (meaning a 90% kill within only 2.3 to 2.6 minutes of treatment), it won't take long to high level disinfect surfaces, including complex surface geometries, even in large process areas. Altapure's system is easily scalable for any application or treatment area both large or small.
Altapure's high level disinfection products is able to rapidly achieve clinically proven “No Growth” results on ALL treated room surfaces tested for: Bacterial Spores, Virus, & Vegetative Bacteria.
In addition, Altapure's submicron sized droplets provide a gas-like diffusion of the treatment agent throughout the room, where the PAA is deposited as an “extremely thin film”.
The result is a touch free / no touch high level disinfection system that is able to reach “no growth cultures” on ALL treated surfaces, even in large rooms, for bacteria such as but not limited to: Geobacillus stearothermophilus (ATCC # 12980), Bacillus atrophaeus (ATCC # 9372), Clostridium difficile (D-diff), Vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Acinetobacter baumanii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Polio virus, and Coronaviruses.
Altapure - Built For The Food Industry
Altapure's equipment is designed to meet all stringent United States regulatory standards for use in agriculture and food production. Internal components are made of food grade compliant polymers and 316 stainless steel; the deployed liquid only in contact with food grade compliant polymers and 316 stainless steel. Only the highest quality materials for construction are used, and none of the liquid contact components are coated or painted.
Exterior materials of Altapure's devices are constructed from food grade compliant polymers and 304/316 stainless steel. Materials satisfy FDA and USDA material requirements for use in manufacturing and processing facilities regulated by the FDA and USDA.
Disinfection Applications For Agriculture & Food Industries
The Altapure system can be used to high level disinfect areas such as, but not limited to: process tubing, piping, process vessels, packaging lines, bottling lines, food processing lines, food processing equipment, bottling equipment, packaging equipment, storage areas, refrigerated storage areas, storage bins, packaging materials, HVAC ducts or conduit, basically anywhere where surface and/or airborne contamination risks, including any bioburden concerns, are present.
The Altapure system can also be custom tailored to aerosolize and apply other substances, solutions, or compounds, to food products as an “extremely fine aerosol” or “ sub-micron fog” such as, but not limited to: flavorings, preservatives, spices, and anti-fungal compounds.
By using Altapure's products and processes, agriculture and food businesses can increase the efficacy of their cleaning activities, reduce their legal risks, and lower their costs.
