Palintest Compact Chlorometer Certifies Safety of Taylor Fresh Foods Produce
Product verifies cleanliness of wash water for raw produce
Erlanger, KY (March 29, 2012) – Leading water analysis specialist Palintest USA helps ensure the quality and safety of ready-to-eat (RTE) produce for consumers with the Compact Chlorometer water testing device. SmartWash Solutions, a division of Taylor Fresh Foods, relies on the instrument to guarantee the cleanliness of water used to wash its produce.
SmartWash Solutions uses a multi-stage reverse flow wash system to clean raw produce and eliminate bacterial cross contamination. The Compact Chlorometer verifies that the water used contains the appropriate chlorine levels required to destroy microorganisms.
Palintest’s Compact Chlorometer is a handheld instrument that uses photometric technology to analyze water samples for chlorine concentrations. Used in conjunction with the proven DPD testing method from Dr. Palin, it can conduct tests ranging from 0.01-5.0mg/l for Free and Total chlorine levels. The Compact Chlorometer produces quick, accurate results independent of user experience, while the instrument also provides an on-board memory of previous results.
After a comparison of similar products, SmartWash found the Chlorometer to be the most cost-effective and precise testing solution. “Palintest’s products have significantly helped SmartWash Solutions raise the bar on food safety in the fresh RTE food segment,” said SmartWash Solutions Business Development Analyst Sara Mohsin.
