Sustainable Hygiene Systems
The challenges created by an ever-more stringent market in food, beverage and related industry sectors demand new ways of working. McElwaine’s integration of new and globally-proven capabilities, - on a foundation of customer service, quality and value-for-money, - creates an enabling force in manufacturing processes. By working collaboratively within a network of premier international partners McElwaine now deliver chemical-free decontamination and disinfection capabilities in everything from health drinks to equine hygiene and much more.
Electrochemical activation uses water and salt in an electrolysis process to generate a potent and natural disinfectant and a detergent. The ability to produce key elements of a hygiene system on-demand and from natural resources creates cost-saving opportunities and removes the risks associated with residuals in food hygiene systems.
The use of Pulsed Light as a sterilisation system for food packaging is growing exponentially around the world. With proven efficacy, achieving packaging sterilisation using a dry, chemical-free low-energy system has multiple product benefits including non-thermal performance and elimination of adverse taste risks.
Both Pulsed Light and ECA systems can be readily incorporated as a retro-fit to existing lines, or designed into new lines using capabilities brought by Loehrke. The service value that McElwaine now bring includes system design, installation, project-management and commissioning, as well as full after-sales maintenance and support.
