PeroxyChem has developed a novel sterilization technology combining the strengths of peracetic acid wet rinse systems and hydrogen peroxide vapor systems. “Phase™ VTA is a specialty grade of peracetic acid that is vaporized to effectively sterilize beverage containers and filling equipment,” according to Pavel Korzinek, global segment manager, PeroxyChem Aseptic Packaging.
His presentation “Phase™ VTA System Integrated Sterilant: Revolutionary Beverage Container Sterilization” will be given for the first time at an Asian conference at Aseptipak Asia 2016, Global Forum on Aseptic/ESL Processing, Filling & Packaging. The conference will take place 30 November-1 December at the Sofitel Sukhumvit in Bangkok.
Phase ™ VTA is the result of more than four years of extensive research and development. Current test data including extensive pilot trials recently conducted in close collaboration with Stork Food & Dairy Systems will be presented. The data will compare the use of Phase VTA, a patented technology and sterilizing agent that is pending EPA approval, to current vapor hydrogen peroxide sterilization.
