Southland Sanitize is a regional supplier of specialty chemicals for industrial cleaning, including peracetic acid (PAA).
Peracetic acid, also known as peroxyacetic acid, is a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and acetic acid in an equilibrium solution. PAA is scalable and has unique environmental benefits, which makes it an excellent cost effective disinfectant, sterilizer and water treatment for commercial food processing facilities.
About Peracetic Acid
Peracetics are highly soluble and easily oxidizing agents. PAA is effective at killing bacteria, viruses, spores and fungi, even at low concentrations and low temperatures. It takes about 100x as much hydrogen peroxide to achieve the same impact as PAA! Germs cannot build resistance to PAA, so it will remain effective use after use.
Southland Sanitize distributes PAA from Best Sanitizers, is an industry leader in the production of peracetic acid. We offer a variety of PAA concentrations, optimized for different uses in the food production and processing industry.
The varied concentrations are employed for chemical synthesis, bleaching, cleaning, disinfecting and sterilization across diverse industries including food and beverages, contaminated environment cleaning and sanitization and petroleum and gas production.
A powerful and sustainable sanitizer: Peracetic Acid
The food processing industry has been confronted by two trends recently: Increasing standards on disinfection as well as increasing scrutiny on environmental protection. The peracetic acid (PAA) sold by Southland Sanitize is a colorless, soluble organic formulation with a range of concentrations.
PAA is a sustainable solution for food grade sanitization because it decomposes into only environmentally harmless chemicals: Water, oxygen and biodegradable acetic acid.
PAA is a Sanitizer, Disinfectant and Sterilizer
In addition to being powerful and environmentally friendly, PAA can be used to sanitize, disinfect and sterilize. PAA sanitizes by lowering germ levels to food-safe amounts. It disinfects by killing harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses, and PAA sterilizes by removing absolutely any microorganisms on which it is used.
