Safety Solutions for Protein Processing Plants

Peracetic Acid is used throughout your plant at varying concentration levels. It’s sprayed on the line, runs through your pipes, fills dip tanks and sits in storage totes. With so many points of exposure, a continuous monitoring solution is the most effective way to ensure your plant is safe for workers and USDA inspectors.

You can also install this stationery monitor in hot spots throughout your plant to keep workers safe around-the-clock.

E-Cell Sensor

Our E-Cell® Sensor provides a truly accurate reading of Peracetic Acid vapors due to an innovative filter that removes all H2O2. Unlike other suppliers, ChemDAQ’s patent-pending sensor is calibrated with Peracetic Acid test gas to ensure top safety and performance. The E-Cell sensor powers our portable SafeCide 2.0 monitor, the stationary Steri-Trac 2+ Area monitor, and the water-resistant iSCI monitor.
