The Acid-Rite 2500 water pH balancing system is from Axiall Corporation’s Water Treatment Products and is based on tablet-erosion technology.
It is designed to replace bulky liquid acid totes and drums in poultry, red meat and pork processing plants by having a small footprint (measuring 24" L x 13" W x 24" H).
The system uses proprietary Acid-Rite sodium bisulfate tablets, eliminating splash hazards, bulk handling, and concerns over special storage for citric acid to prevent freezing in cold areas.
Neal Standford, president of SES Food Safety Specialists, said it sees Acid-Rite as a key component of its pathogen intervention approach.
“With pending FDA regulations on poultry parts coming into play, this is a practical approach to meeting pathogen intervention standards without affecting yields.”
SES has designed a delivery method integrating Acid-Rite and Axiall’s Accu-Tab calcium hypochlorite-based tablet system giving processors the ability to produce a hypochlorous acid solution to kill bacteria on contact.
