As the need for increased food safety grows, chemists must find better ways to control dangerous pathegens from entering the food supply. Two seemingly mild chemicals-acetic acid (vinegar) and hydrogen peroxide, can be combined to create peracetic acid. This colorless liquid is outstanding as an antimicrobial agent that is used from food processing to medical sterilization. The problem with peracetic acid is that it is so corrosive that it can dissolve many metals and it's fumes are very dangerous. So when a company in the bottling industry used peracetic acid as a disinfectant in their plant, they realized a need to safely exhaust the fumes. Considering how corrosive this acid is, and how difficult it is to control chemically, many companies turned this customer down. They were very happy after they contacted Chicago Plastic Systems.
