JBT’s Liquid Foods business group will act as the exclusive, global sales representative for Aurratech in most liquid and pump-able product applications. Aurratech’s Fog-in-Place can be used by food and beverage processors to sanitize equipment, piping, tanks and entire processing areas through the creation of a nano particles biocide solution called Purifog.

FIP guarantees 100 percent surface contact, plus airborne disinfection with just a fraction of the water and chemicals typically consumed by a traditional sanitizing process, JBT said. Multiple applications are under development for commercial use.
