Acti-Max – Wash down of food factory floors

March 31, 2020

Floors and drains are an integral part of a food processing facility. Keeping them clean and therefore hygienic is paramount to reducing the risk of foodborne pathogens.

Acti-Max is a slurry-based alkali of highly reactive magnesium hydroxide solids produced from high surface area magnesium oxide. It is a concentrated stabilised suspension of magnesium hydroxide, an inorganic compound with the chemical formula Mg(OH)2. Acti-Max slowly releases hydroxyl ions, which break down low-density, large-chain fatty acids into glycerol and various types of soap, both of which are more readily digested by bacteria in waste stream. Acti-Max offers a safe and cost-effective solution for odour and FOG (fat, oil, grease) control while being extremely easy to use.
