How to eliminate yeast and mould in packaging rooms

News > How to eliminate yeast and mould in packaging rooms

As sanitary safety is a daily challenge in the agri-food sector, Oxy’Pharm, the surface bio-disinfection expert, offers a complete hygiene concept based on an effective and eco-responsible synergy.

Its automated surface disinfection concept using dry diffusion (Nocotech) and its steam biocleaning (Sanivap) makes Oxy’Pharm able to fight against all infections and contaminations in the food processing industry.

Eliminating yeasts and moulds using the Nocospray dry mist

To solve the problem of eliminating yeasts and moulds in the packaging sector where hygiene must be impeccable, Oxy’Pharm recommends regular use of Nocospray, an automated surface treatment device capable of disinfecting up to 1,000 m3. This solution reduces the level of yeasts and moulds depending on the activitý from just 1 mL of product for every m3 treated.

It quickly bio-disinfects and can treat a volume of 1,000 m3 in 1 hour of diffusion time, with 30 minutes of contact time (i.e. 1mL/m3). “We recommend carrying out the treatment at night for a daily treatment“, advises Oxy’Pharm.

The other advantage of this method is that it is “zero humidity”. The Nocolyse Food product used is diffused as a dry, biodegradable mist. No intervention is required before treatment (except for cleaning) or after treatment (no wiping, ventilating or rinsing required).

It is imperative to take into account the AHU (Air Handling Unit) and the evaporator within the room and to treat them at the same time as the room because yeast and mould is also present. “ advises Oxy’Pharm, whose entire product range has been designed with eco-responsibility and sustainable development in mind. All the bio-disinfection systems developed by the company are 99.9% biodegradable, fully respect the environment and are not dangerous for humans.

The effectivenesś of the machine/product combination, in accordance with EN 17272 (bactericidal, fungicidal, sporicidal, yeasticidal, virucidal and sporicidal), has been effectively proven in laboratory studies.

Sanivap no-rinse detergent

Oxy’Pharm recommends the use of steam bio-cleaning with the Sanivap SP600 steam generator*. The steam provides a detergent treatment against yeast and mould but also reaches the most difficult to reach places and/or machines.

Out of the various steam generators in the Sanivap range and its diverse range of treatment accessories, the use of the SP600 steam generator ensures a complete and effective cleaning of all surfaces using a rinse-free process. The ergonomic handle, the very limited use of water and the immediate drying of surfaces are some of the advantages of this solution.

It is effectively proven by laboratory studies to remove yeasts and mould, and complies with the NF T72-110 standard (bactericide, fungicide, yeasticide and virucide).
