Keeping Quality Up

Using peroxyacetic acid for increasing quality and decreasing loss

In the December 2018 issue of Potato Grower, Michael Larose, Technical Marketing Manager at BioSafe Systems, had an article published titled “Keep Quality Up.” He discusses how peroxyacetic acid (PAA) can increase the quality of products, decrease the loss and then goes into detail about common issues in potato storages.

BioSafe Systems’ PAA products are effective against a broad range of profit-robbing, storage pathogens but meet sustainability requirements. Michael states, “Peroxyacetic acid is still considered a newer technology in the agrochemical industry, but it’s a powerful chemistry that helps potato producers and shed managers address the critical practices.”

BioSafe provides products and applications expertise via application partners to help manage storage pathogens from post-harvest to pre-bagging. Our products are designed for today’s requirements of storage, providing the highest degree of sanitation and control over potato storage. This results in enhanced storage quality and increased pack-out, which in turn maximizes profits.

The BioBuster: an Integrated Control and Monitoring System

The BioBuster is an integrated system that allows you to control and monitor a variety of chemical applications within a processing plant.

BioBuster’s PLC panel can control pumps, dosing equipment, control meters, probes, and valves. The built-in HDMI screen allows for easy user access. BioBuster’s pump system comes preassembled with metering pumps, associated piping, control valves, flow and measurement meters, all conveniently installed on a modular panel.

This proprietary system gives our customers complete control when using BioSafe Systems’ intervention chemistries in multiple points in a processing line. As an integrated system, BioBuster has multiple injection points to dose intervention chemistry, along with pH adjusters and other chemistries that may be required.

BioBuster can also be used with BioSafe Systems’ BioChamber Chiller Management System to automatically test chiller water for exact ppm levels of peroxyacetic acid. It provides real-time monitoring of all intervention points, and its cloud-based reporting capabilities allow our customers to generate large amounts of useful, operational data that can be easily formatted into reports and trend graphs.

BioSafe Systems offers a downloadable application that allows customers to have complete system control and monitoring capabilities on a mobile device. BioBuster provides benefits and savings like comprehensive data generating and reporting, and optimizing chemical dosing to increase both efficacy, and efficiency.
