|Features & benefits
The Isan system substantially reduces the incidence
of fungal growth, spoilage organisms and pathogens in water and on food:
Effective chlorine replacement
Comprehensively replaces disinfection by existing chlorine wash systems, eliminating
all of chlorine’s negative aspects and handling problems including growing
environmental issues at the same time as providing a powerful biocide.
Higher kill rates on bacteria and fungi
Extensive testing and industry use has proven that the Isan system consistently
achieves high bacteria, fungal and pathogen kill rates in both water solutions
and on a wide range of fruit and vegetables.
No pH adjustment
Chlorine only operates effectively within tightly controlled pH levels. As
chlorine is added to water, pH moves outside these limits, making the chlorine
less effective as a disinfection treatment.
By contrast, iodine operates in
a very wide pH range. It has little or no adverse effect on pH, eliminating
all of the pH monitoring problems encountered with
The Isan system is one of the world’s most environmentally responsible
and friendly disinfection systems. Virtually no biocide by-products escape
into the environment. The complete process captures all by-products and converts
the captured by-products back into the original biocide, providing an environmentally
clean closed loop process.
Almost no corrosion
The Isan system is far less corrosive than any other system:
- iodine itself is seven times less corrosive than chlorine;
- the concentration of iodine used is usually five to ten times less than chlorine
Iodine – the ideal biocide
For over 100 years, iodine as a disinfectant has been recognised as one of
the most effective medical antiseptics available. Even NASA recognises iodine’s
unique qualities, using it as the only water disinfection process on all manned
space flights. It is also an essential ingredient in our daily diet.
No chemical mixing
Chlorine and fungicide use involves diluting and mixing highly toxic chemicals.
By comparison, the Isan system uses a patented form of iodine, which is supplied
in a sealed canister. Handling or mixing of chemicals is eliminated – totally.
Automatic adjustment to organic load
The Isan system constantly monitors the active iodine disinfectant available,
and quickly self adjusts dosage levels to meet any increase in the organic
load. This fully automated process happens in ‘real time’ and is
a unique feature of the Isan system.
Every Isan System is equipped with a fully automated computerised control
system. This system electronically monitors the biocide level and automatically
doses the water to maintain preset levels. Electronic monitoring of the remaining
to ensure timely replacement of canisters. Every Isan System has in-built modem
communication facilitating system control and monitoring as well as on-line
Complete data logging
Disinfection levels in the wash water can be recorded in any preset time cycle
and stored permanently. These logs provide your customers and HACCP auditors
with certified proof on constant and effective disinfection levels. No more
Q/A Audit certificates
Customised audit certificates can be generated automatically for all batches
of produce disinfected.
This certificate can be printed and/or emailed direct to your customer.
Safe and user-friendly
The Isan system is the safest and most user-friendly disinfection system
Its controls warn the operator of any breach of preset levels and also, in
certain circumstances, can shut down the system. These warnings can be audible,
visual and/or sent electronically to a telephone or a computer.
Eliminates chlorine from the food chain
Being iodine based, the Isan system eliminates the significant risk of food
operators introducing chlorine-based carcinogenic by-products into the environment
or the food chain.
