PAA is an effective and quick disinfectant. It targets a vast range of bacteria, funghi, and spores. It also does not cause harmful DBP.
Accurate in-field measurement of PAA can be done using Kemio Disinfection. This sensor method gives a quick accurate read of the level of PAA in a water sample. Designed specifically for use in food and beverage applications, Kemio provides repeatable and reliable results to ensure food safety and regulatory compliance.
This is dependent on the application for which you are using the PAA as a sanitizer. Other factors to consider include the organic matter, the type of produce, and the contact time. Levels can range from as low as 10 mg/L to over 2000 mg/L.
The by-products of PAA are acetic acid and water, neither of which are harmful to the environment or to health.
Kemio technology offers significant advantages compared to alternative techniques for sanitizer control in food and beverage. Unlike traditional methods, Kemio has no user subjectivity and minimal user input which minimizes potential operator errors and variation in results.
