Care in handling and storage of the product. All FMC peracetic acid products are stabilized solutions. Packaging containers for FMC’s peracetic acid products are equipped with a vent to relieve internal pressure and must be stored upright. To maintain product quality, FMC recommends storage in a cool, dry, well ventilated area where the temperature of the container will not exceed 30 °C (86 °F). The oxidizing nature of peracetic acid requires storage separate from other flammables and non-compatibles.FMC's  contains new updates and relevant product information including product labels, technical data sheets, case studies, and related links

Using such techniques can leave a question about whether or not all of the surface was truly sanitized and can lead to wasteful sanitizer consumption. Many good sanitizers exist on the market today, and following the procedures on the labels for effective sanitation is critical to success. Oftentimes, flooding techniques are used to ensure the proper contact time for the sanitizer.

Today’s interest in environmentally friendly or “green” products has greatly increased the popularity of peracetic acid as a sanitizer in food and beverage processing. This makes it ideal for rinsing applications since it requires much less water than traditional sanitizers to remove surface residuals. The 7191-01-FMC titration kit can measure either PAA in 15 ppm increments or Peroxide concentrations in 50 ppm increments.


Peracetic Acid - FMC Microbial Control - Clarity

Approved by the FDA for low acid applications, Clarity™ is an easy-to-use single component peracetic acid microbial agent that can be used for sterilization at lower temperatures and on a wide range of processing equipment, packaging materials and closure systems.
