JBT and Aurratech bring the FOG-IN-PLACE™ technology to the food sector

Growing interest from the Spanish fruit and vegetable sector in fogging disinfection

JBT Corporation is committed to offering complementary solutions and technologies to meet all the needs of its global customer base. To this end, JBT strikes strategic alliances with those companies that can provide them.

At this time, thanks to its alliance with Aurratech Inc., it is behind the worldwide launch of innovative technology for surface and environmental disinfection.

Aurratech Inc. has developed the FOG-IN-PLACE™ (FIP®) technology, a pioneering disinfection system that guarantees 100% contact with surfaces and the environment, using a minimum amount of water and chemicals, compared to traditional systems.

According to Caio Agmont, founder of Aurratech, FIP® disinfects surfaces through the fragmentation of the biocide solution into billions of microparticles that behave like a gas. These microparticles are very light, allowing them to remain suspended for long periods of time and ensuring long contact times between the biocide solution and the surfaces.

FIP® offers effective and easy-to-apply solutions to all types of companies, including agro-food companies, both of fresh and processed products, to disinfect surfaces and environments in any area and in all kinds of facilities.

FIP® vs. COVID-19
The disaster that COVID-19 has generated is making us aware of the importance and need to implement hygiene and disinfection programs, executed with effective systems and with the right frequency.

The virus remains infectious for hours and even days, depending on the kind of surface. Therefore, it is very important to ensure that the disinfectant comes into contact with all surfaces, mainly in risk areas with a high circulation of people.

FIP® guarantees 100% contact with all surfaces, safely and without risk of human failure.

Currently, the FIP® system is already being used to disinfect corporate plants, public areas, hotels, industrial plants and health units to combat COVID-19.

Growing interest in the Spanish fruit and vegetable sector
"Our FIP® technology has been positively received by companies around the world, including fruit and vegetable plants in Spain, where FIP® can be used for environmental and surface disinfection," says Francisco Peris, commercial director of JBT-FPT at EMENA. FOG-IN-PLACE™ facilitates the elimination of mold and yeast spores, reducing losses and becoming a very effective tool in managing resistance of microorganisms against commonly used chemicals. In other words, it improves their effectiveness.
