Stayfresh Big Bag
Stayfresh destroys all forms of microbial life including fungi molds and rots, viruses, and all forms of bacteria and their spores throughout your cold storage rooms, sea containers, walk-ins, and refer vans.
This product works hand in hand with super fresh media in the EC-3+ Clean Air Systems. Here is how it works, the Stayfresh Big Bag supercharges super fresh media that kills microbial life along with removing ethylene gas. The Stayfresh Big Bag is placed on top of media and takes the destroying power out into the room to eliminate microbial life, ethylene gas, and orders throughout your cold storage room. It also helps keep your refrigeration coils clean.
The Chlorine Dioxide (CLO2) StayFresh media enhances our Stav Fresh media.
Place the STAYFRESH BIG BAG on top of the SUPER FRESH media in the EC-3+ System and replace it every 90 days. it’s a one-two punch to protect your produce, floral, cannabis and hemp.
ECI’s STAYFRESH vs OZONE: This is a direct food intervention comparison, but it shows the phenomena that is important. STAYFRESH has a hundred-fold greater solubility than ozone. This means it transfers from gas to the liquid phase (on surfaces of coils, bio-aerosols, and of course fruits and veggies). STAYFRESH produces a dry gas which provides even greater selectivity in the way it works in the gas phase. This means you do not experience the corrosion etc. that often goes with using ozone because you do not have to use such high doses, means you have greater worker safety.
ECI’s STAYFRESH vs CATALYTIC: Generally speaking, UV catalytic is limited in efficacy and only treats the air it sees. STAYFRESH is more unique for the same reason vs ozone. Just a better selective, oxidizer that can move. Working with your air movement and the Ethylene Control EC- 3+ Clean Air System will release product throughout the room. There really is no comparison.
What Is Chlorine Dioxide?
Measured and Controlled Due to its yellow-green color. Chlorine dioxide gas can be measured using a photometer. A photometer measures the absorbance of the gas [darker color = higher concentrations) which allows for a highly accurate, repeatable, and reliable measurement do ensure tight process control.
True Gas at Room Temperature Chlorine dioxide is a true gas at room temperature which enables It to fill the space it is contained within evenly and completely, just like oxygen in the air. This property is essential when trying to eradicate pathogens from an area as the gas will get everywhere and not allow, anything to “hide” from it.
Different from Chlorine While “chlorine” is in its name, chlorine dioxide gas is VERY different. Chlorine dioxide’s method of kill is oxidation, where chorine kills through chlorination. Therefore unlike chlorine, chlorine dioxide does not produce environmentally undesirable organic compounds and is safer on materials.
How Does Chlorine Dioxide Work
Chlorine dioxide acts as an oxidizing agent, which kills organisms by stealing electrons from cells, breaking their molecular bonds. The method and potency of chlorine dioxide gas prevent cells from mutating to a resistant form. This eliminates the need to rotate decontamination methods to prevent overuse and resistance. Additionally, because of the lower reactivity of chlorine dioxide, its antimicrobial action is retained longer in the presence of organic matter making it more effective than most other decontamination methods at killing dust, dirt, and other organics.
Chlorine Dioxide Environmentally Friendy?
Chlorine dioxide’s properties make it an ideal choice to meet the challenges of today’s environmentally conscious society. Chlorine dioxide gas is non-carcinogenic, leaves no residues or waste to treat or clean up, and does not deplete the ozone layer. lt can be safely vented into the atmosphere in all parts of the world. lt is used to treat drinking water and approved for organic crops on the USDA’s National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances. (7 CFR 5205.601)
How Does Chlorine Dioxide React With Water?
While chlorine dioxide has “chlorine” in its name, it is very different from chlorine. Chlorine reacts with water to form hydrochloric acid, but chlorine dioxide does not and maintains a neutral pH in water. The gaseous CD is the only decontaminating fumigant that penetrates water, decontaminating both the water and the surface beneath. If liquid is present, the sterilization efficacy of CB is not affected.
