BioSafe Systems introduces Specialty Technology for PAA Monitoring in Poultry Chiller Waters

EAST HARTFORD, CT – BioSafe Systems announces new technology for monitoring PAA concentrations in water used for poultry processing chiller applications. BioChamberis designed to monitor peroxyacetic acid and caustic ppm levels at multiple intervention hurdle steps including chillers, dips and spray cabinets, and communicate with the pump controller to maintain desired levels of intervention chemistries.

The BioChamber is equipped with specially designed probe housing for accurate monitoring of chiller process waters where high pH levels and high levels of fats, oils, and greases would typically damage standard technology. This breakthrough technology allows dosing systems to automatically increase or decrease the amount of PAA being introduced, regardless of pH levels.

Calcis® Application with SOLitude Lake Management Shows Excellent Results

 

Calcis Application in Lake and Pond

East Hartford, CT – SOLitude Lake Management recently tested the water quality at a site in North Carolina. The body of water revealed to be less than ideal conditions. With that in mind, SOLitude teamed up with BioSafe Systems for a lime application which would help increase alkalinity, hardness and buffer the pH in water systems. The ideal result would be the body of water would turn into a healthier, aquatic ecosystem.

BioSafe Systems’ Calcis® Liquid Calcium Carbonate, an alternative to aggregate the lime, minimized labor costs and expedited the application. The smaller volume of the material, less labor and equipment helped the lake management team complete the application in one day.

The Calcis was dispensed into the water via direct injection with a prop wash, used to help agitate the treatment area and provide better coverage. The results lined up with both the client and lake management teams’ expectations – Calcis improved the water quality and restored balance.

BioSafe Systems Participates in Foodshare’s Turkey and a Thirty Drive

“As a Connecticut based company, we are always looking for ways we can give back to our community,” says Jonah Dorsey, Marketing Coordinator for BioSafe. “Unfortunately, hunger is a reality for thousands of CT residents. By working with Foodshare, we believe we can help solve this issue”.

In the several years BioSafe Systems has participated in this event, the company has raised money and collected turkeys in a variety of ways. “Every year we have been trying to find new ways in which we can increase the amount of donations we collect,” Dorsey says. “We have organized social media campaigns, had company-wide donation contests and organized events.”

This year, BioSafe looked to generate more community involvement. In addition to the donations raised by its employees, the company looked to their neighbors at Founders Plaza for help. All in all, over $5,000 was raised and 27 turkeys were collected. Donations are still being collected through the holiday season on site.foodshare.org/biosafesystems.

“It’s easy to take for granted how lucky some of us are,” Tammy Raymond, Brand Manager for BioSafe Systems adds. “Hunger is a reality for many people in our community. It is important that those who are able give back. Any donation, no matter the amount, makes a real difference in someone’s life.”

For the past 36 years, Foodshare has been effective in their approach to tackling hunger. For every $50 generated, the nonprofit can provide 125 meals. Additionally, every $14 provides a turkey to a family during the holiday season.

BioSafe’s participation in a Turkey and Thirty has generated hundreds of turkeys and tens of thousands of dollars. Each year the company looks for new ways in which it can get more involved. “BioSafe Systems is in the business of creating value in the food chain,” Rob Larose, President and CEO of BioSafe Systems adds. “It is only fitting that we find a way to give back.
