Vibrex is a salts with bactericidal, algicidal, and fungicidal

Vibrex

Agranco has developed the most technologically advanced stabilized chlorine dioxide formulation with the commercial name: Vibrex®.

Vibrex® offers all the advantages of chlorine, with superior performance without any of the inconveniences.

Description
Vibrex® is a colorless, odorless liquid, nontoxic, non corrosive and nonflammable. It is a wide spectrum bactericide, fungicide, virucide and algaecide to be used as a disinfectant in many applications involving human and animal consumption foods and beverages. Vibrex® is also used in the disinfection and prevention of contamination in hospitals, hotels and restaurants, etc.

Vibrex® destroys and controls the development of micro-organisms such as bacteria, mould, algae and virus. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration ( FDA ) of the United States under chapter No. 173.309.

Ingredients
Special blend of sodium and calcium salts

The Vibrex® complex is a combination of oxygen and chlorine as CIO2 in an aqueous solution, which is the most secure form for handling and storage. Used according to the recommendations, it is harmless and insipid; it is 160% more effective than chlorine and 10 times more stable, and will not dissipate. Vibrex® is more economic to use without the toxicity of chlorine.

Biosecurity Packages For The Food Industry 
Financial losses and public concern due to bacterial infection and "food scares" are of increasing concern to the food industry, consumers and regulatory authorities. Strenuous efforts are made to prevent disease and infection spreading whilst stock is on the farm - but it is most often at the processing plant where infection and contamination is picked up. The problems caused by bacterial infection apply to all sectors of the food industry, including vegetable washing, fish processing and meat production. While great care and attention is often taken to minimize the risk of infection from processing staff and other food handlers, relatively ineffectual biocides and disinfectants are used to treat process water and equipment.

Intended to compliment existing good practice in other areas of plant hygiene, AGRANCO S.A. is pleased to be able to offer a complete package of treatment systems that will ensure only safe and contamination free food reaches the consumer.

AGRANCO S.A. offers chlorine dioxide based biocides and hygiene treatments to overcome the risks associated with contamination of food by using chlorine dioxide technology.

Chlorine dioxide is several times more powerful than other biocides commonly used, yet has no associated taste or odor problems . In many situations, we are able to offer custom designed "Intensive Care" programs, in association with other specialist companies. The “Intensive Care” program covers all aspects of hygiene management within the plant hygiene giving complete security and peace of mind. Regardless of size, AGRANCO S.A. is able to offer a complete range of products to ensure safe and contamination free food.

Governmental Registration
The following is a list of Governmental Registrations currently in place:

FDA
1. Final ruling on FDA indirect food additive petition, published August 12, 1987, listing chlorine dioxide in 21 CFR 178.1010, as an approved compound in food processing plants for all food contact surfaces.

USDA
1. P-1 approval for bacterial and mould control in federally inspected meat and poultry processing plants for environmental surfaces.
2. D-2 approval as terminal sanitizing rinse not requiring a water flush on all food surfaces found in food processing plants.
3. D-3 approval as a substance for washing fruit and vegetables that are used as ingredients of meat, poultry, and rabbit products.
4. G-5 approval for treatment of cooling and retort water in official establishments operating under the Federal meat and poultry products inspection program.

List of Substances, Products and Processes approved under Regulations 25 and 26 for use as a disinfectant for waterworks apparatus, distribution pipes and service reservoirs, on condition that it is used in accordance with the approved Water Systems Disinfection Manual. Chlorine Dioxide is the only product other than chlorine to have gained this approval.
