Ecolab Inc. has introduced Synergex, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered, mixed peracid sanitizer and disinfectant designed to help dairy, food, beverage and brewery processors ensure food quality, improve productivity, enhance workplace safety and reduce environmental impact.

Designed for use on most hard, nonporous surfaces and in clean-in-place (CIP) applications, Synergex is an innovative, traceable chemistry that helps processors improve productivity and reduce environmental impact when used with Ecolab’s innovative inline monitoring system, 3D TRASAR Technology for CIP. This coupling of chemistry and real-time monitoring promotes faster decision making and improved compliance with food safety regulations.

“When we combine Synergex with our 3D TRASAR technology and industry-leading technical expertise, we can provide greater visibility into our customer’s most pressing and diverse challenges,” says Nick Alfano, Ecolab executive vice president and general manager, Global Food & Beverage. “Our technical experts analyze this information and partner with customers to implement corrective actions that help safeguard food safety.

In addition to featuring a powerful antimicrobial agent that helps protect against many pathogenic microorganisms, yeast, mold and spoilage organisms, the innovative Synergex sanitizer also reduces day-to-day variability in quality levels.

“For fresh milk, Synergex has been shown to reduce day-to-day process variability by up to 40 percent while increasing days of quality assurance by up to 15 percent,” says Kristine Williams, vice president, Research, Development and Engineering, Ecolab Food & Beverage. “Increased quality assurance is critical as processors seek to expand distribution channels and offerings, reduce waste, and improve profitability in today’s highly competitive market.”

Synergex also is designed to help processers improve plant productivity. The patented chemistry aids mineral, hard water and milk soil removal, and optimizes CIP cycle time. And because Synergex is traceable with Ecolab’s 3D TRASAR Technology for CIP, food and beverage processors can more accurately measure compliance to quality standards with proof of delivery data, optimize water and energy use, and reduce waste.

Synergex is available now in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
