Food Safety

Chlorine dioxide has a long and established history in the food industry, being safely used for more than 70 years to disinfect much of the nation's food and water supply, and is also used at more than 900 water treatment facilities around the world everyday. Now more than ever, chlorine dioxide is being widely recognized for the properties that make it a high-quality, low cost alternative to other disinfection methods. Our gaseous CD is gentle on materials and is the safest and most effective way to decontaminate your processing and filling lines, holding tanks, and equipment and rooms.

The recently enacted Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires food suppliers, harvesters, food facilities, etc. to take action in preventing food contamination rather than just simply to responding to issues when they occur. Biosafety with ClorDiSys' Technology is at the forefront of this contamination prevention movement providing chlorine dioxide based decontamination products and services to preserve product integrity and maintain FSMA compliance. Recently, ClorDiSys has also been approved by the FDA for antimicrobial fruit and vegetable rinses in both the gaseous (Food Food Contact Notice 1421) and liquid (Food Contact Notice 1400) states.

Our chlorine dioxide gas is registered with US Environmental Protection Agency as a sterilant and is able to inactivate all forms of antimicrobial life, including spores. We are also experienced and effective at remediating and removing E. coli, Listeria monocytogenes, and Salmonella contaminations, three of the most common and prevalent organisms affecting food quality.

Biosafety offers both equipment and services for decontamination as part of emergency response, preventative maintenance programs or contamination control schedules, when outbreaks occur, or for new construction, renovation or decommissioning projects and is easily implemented in food processing facilities, dry facilities, Ready-to-eat (RTE) facilities as well as deli facilities.

Complete Facilities

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services
Chlorine dioxide gas fills the space it's contained in completely and evenly, making full facility decontamination easy as no surface is left untouched. We have decontaminated facility's over 1,000,000 ft3, providing sporicidal kill throughout. Suitable for new facilities prior to production starting, existing facilities during scheduled shutdown, or if microbial contamination is present.

Partial Facilities

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Megadox
Single rooms, connected rooms, and other areas within facilities can be decontaminated using chlorine dioxide gas on a routine basis. Chlorine dioxide gas can also be used in contamination response to eliminate any contamination present and quickly return rooms and the equipment within back to production readiness. Typically all equipment and components within a food production facility is compatible with chlorine dioxide gas. By using a true gas, all surfaces including cracks and crevices are easily contacted, allowing for complete decontamination of areas over 1,000,000 ft3

Aseptic Filling Areas

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Megadox | Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Aseptic areas can be routinely decontaminated with chlorine dioxide gas. Many customers decontaminate their aseptic areas during scheduled shutdowns, after maintenance work is performed in the room, or in the event that a contamination is found within the space.

Spiral Freezers

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Megadox | Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M
Spiral Freezers can be completely decontaminated with chlorine dioxide gas. The limited accessibility which hinders standard cleaning methods does not affect the gas' ability to naturally distribute and contact all surfaces within the chamber. Chlorine dioxide gas is able to decontaminate the crevices, nooks, crannies, and conveyors within the spiral freezer, allowing for the most effective decontamination possible. Decontaminations can be performed upon installation, during scheduled shutdowns, after maintenance work is performed in the freezer, or in the event that a contamination is found within the space.

Tanks and Vessels

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Megadox | Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Decontamination of tanks and vessels is made easy with chlorine dioxide gas. Many tanks and vessels are decontaminated after every batch to ensure sterility for the next batch. Using residue free chlorine dioxide gas is a faster process in most facilities, with downtime reduced to hours as chlorine dioxide gas has a short residence time compared to liquid methods.
Holding Tanks Holding Tank

Transport Containers

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Megadox | Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Chlorine dioxide gas can replace steam and harsh chemicals when decontaminating transport containers. Containers can be decontaminated prior to being filled to ensure the sterility of the product during transport.

Piping

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Megadox | Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Piping and filling lines can be decontaminated with chlorine dioxide gas upon installation to establish sterility. They can also be decontaminated on a routine basis, in response to a contamination, or after any maintenance is performed on the line. Using chlorine dioxide gas, all surfaces are guaranteed to be contacted.
Transfer Piping Transfer Piping

Laboratories

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Megadox | Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Laboratories can easily be decontaminated with chlorine dioxide gas. Equipment and components can all be left in place during the decontamination as chlorine dioxide gas is able to distribute around objects, completely and evenly contacting all surfaces within the room. Chlorine dioxide gas is safe on materials, even electronics.

Processing Equipment

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Megadox | Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Single pieces of equipment or rooms of equipment can be decontaminated with chlorine dioxide gas. Equipment can be tented / bagged and decontaminated, with cracks, crevices, nooks and crannies all being fully decontaminated.
Food Processing Line Food Transfer Line

Lyophilizers

Available Products: Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Lyophilizers can be decontaminated with chlorine dioxide gas prior to use or on a routine basis to ensure sterility. Chlorine dioxide gas can also be used in contamination response to eliminate any contamination present. Chlorine dioxide gas will not stress the chamber and gaskets like steam can. Chlorine dioxide gas also offers a shorter cycle time as heat up and cool down is not required.

HVAC Ductwork

Available Products: Clordisys Decontamination Services | Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Ductwork and HVAC systems, including HEPA housings, can be decontaminated using chlorine dioxide gas. In fact, chlorine dioxide gas is the only residue free fumigation method that can successfully decontaminate HVAC ductwork as it does not condense out along the path length.

Decontamination Chambers

Available Products: Cloridox-GMP | Minidox-M | Minidox-B
Chlorine dioxide gas decontamination chambers offer many benefits to facilities who have them. Decon Chambers offer an easily sealed room where items can be brought in and quickly decontaminated. They can be used to bring equipment into a clean facility or out of a contaminated facility. Decon Chamber / Rack Washer combos add flexibility to a facility's capabilities, as one chamber can be used for either application. Using chlorine dioxide gas allows for the decontamination of heat / steam sensitive components such as electronics, tools, supplies and HEPA filters. click here to read more
