What is Peracetic Acid?
Peracetic Acid (PAA) is a powerful disinfectant due to its high oxidizing potential, effectiveness against a broad range of microorganisms and its favorable environmental profile.
Highly effective against a broad range of microorganisms, peracetic acid is the ideal antimicrobial agent for applications across various industries, including agriculture, food processing, water treatment, pulp & paper, and more.
Benefits of Peracetic Acid
Peracetic acid is regularly used in a variety of industries due to its many benefits.
Peracetic acid is effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms
Microbes cost industry billions of dollars per year spent in compromised product. Microbes contaminate and spoil finished products – everything from food to water systems to paper and paint products. We’re able to quickly detect and quantitate specific microorganisms. Peracetic acid provides quick results, allowing our customers to act immediately.
Peracetic acid has no toxic byproducts
Peracetic acid breaks down safely to environmentally friendly residues (acetic acid and hydrogen peroxide) with no toxic byproducts.
Peracetic acid provides effective odor control
Odor control solutions containing peracetic acid do not require multiple chemicals to generate and are considered a more powerful and stable oxidizer than hydrogen peroxide.
Peracetic acid produces sustainable and safe decomposition
Peracetic acid is easy to use
Peracetic acid operates over a wide temperature and pH range
Peracetic Acid and Food Production
Peracetic acid is used for sanitizing of food contact surfaces, sanitizing and disinfecting of animal premises and as a food processing aid for antimicrobial intervention without imparting odors, colors, or flavors to the finished product.
Peracetic Acid and Water Treatment
Peracetic acid harnesses the power of oxygen for the treatment of effluent wastewater, secondary disinfection, combined sewer overflows and other non-potable water applications.
