Oxine®

2 MBOxine FP

The Ultimate Antimicrobial Product for the Food Processing Industry

oxine-1OXINE® is the most effective, fast-acting, broad-spectrum antimicrobial available.

OXINE® is a highly refined blend of oxychloro species containing purified sodium chlorite. When activated, chlorine dioxide is produced, greatly enhancing OXINE®’s antimicrobial activity. With applications in the food processing and water treatment industries. OXINE® displays broad spectrum antimicrobial activity, proven effective against Legionella, E. Coli O157:H7, Salmonella, Aspergillus, Listeria, Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas, among others. This product is especially suited for the removal and subsequent control of biofilm. OXINE® is EPA registered and organically approved through Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and possesses a myriad of other approvals.

Activation

OXINE® requires activation for on-site generation of chlorine dioxide. Activation involves lowering the pH of the concentrate with any GRAS acid. Activation may be accomplished manually in low volume as batch applications; or with BCI’s hands-free, cost efficient AANE™ unit, the Wall Mount Activation System™, or the on-line activation system OLAS™, which combines activation with injection into water streams.
