Peracetic Acid 5% 25L
Specialist disinfectant. A BPR Approved biocidal and industrial disinfectant under Article 95; used in circulation cleaning and industrial sanitisation across a diverse range of applications. Predominantly used within dairy, recycling & waste management, food & drink manufacture, slaughterhousesand the brewery trade.
Most environmentally friendly antimicrobial agent in the marketplace, a colourless solution with a sharp, pungent, vinegar like odour.
Peracetic acid as a disinfectant oxidizes the outer cell membranes of microorganisms. The oxidation mechanism consists of electron transfer. When a stronger oxidant is used, the electrons are transferred to the microorganism much faster, causing the microorganism to be deactivated rapidly
APPLICATIONS Farming : Sanitizer in agricultural & poultry premises. Disinfectant to treat animal diseases by controlling pathogenic micro-organisms Food & Beverage : Disinfectant within commercial food establishments and processing equipment, brewery manufacturing processes and wineries Industrial Cleaning: Quickly becoming a viable alternative in sanitization to Sodium Hypochlorite as it does not react with proteins to produce toxic or carcinogenic compounds. Pulp & Paper : Medical facilities & supplies to prevent biofilm formation in pulp industries Dairy : Disinfectant in dairy/cheese processing plants and pasteurizers Healthcare : Combined with other anti corrosive chemicals provides sterilization of heat sensitive immersible medical instruments
PRODUCT ADVANTAGES: Highly effective bactericide - Chlorine free - Quenching not required - Long shelf life - Minimal pH dependence - No residual.
Peracetic acid can be applied for the deactivation of a large variety of pathogenic microorganisms. It also deactivates viruses and spores. Peracetic acid activity is hardly influenced by organic compounds that are present in the water. However, pH and temperature do influence Peracetic acid activity. Peracetic acid is more effective when the pH value is 7 than at a pH range between 8 and 9. At a temperature of 15 °C and a pH value of 7, five times more Peracetic acid is required to affectively deactivate pathogens than at a pH value of 7 and a temperature of 35 °C.
