On precleaned, non-food contact surfaces they kill 99.9% of pathogens in 10 seconds, including rubber footwear. Alpet® D2 Surface Sanitizer’s 58% IPA/quaternary ammonia formula is widely known within the food processing industry. In response to the need for approved chemicals against the coronavirus, Best Sanitizers attained the “emerging pathogen” wording for the SARS-CoV-2 on Alpet D2’s product label. Alpet® D2 Quat-Free Surface Sanitizer (62.5% Ethanol / 7.5% isopropanol) is approved under the WSDA Organic Food Program. Both are NSF listed, Kosher, Pareve and Halal certified.

Both units use compressed air to deliver an atomized spray of Alpet D2 or Alpet D2 Quat- Free to footwear soles for consistent, measurable results every time.
The goal of hand hygiene is to reduce pathogens on the hands to the smallest number possible. Alpet® Q E2 Sanitizing Foam Soap is pH balanced and formulated with emollients to help keep hands healthy, even with repeated use. For maximum pathogen reduction, Alpet® E3 Plus Hand Sanitizer Spray is 99.9999% effective in killing tested pathogens.

NEW AFFINITY® INTEGRA-D CHEESE DICER: U.S.D.A.,
DAIRY DIVISION ACCEPTED
“Following the success of our large Affinity® cheese dicer, the new Integra-D offers processors all of the advantages in a scaleddown footprint. The Integra-D provides the latest in precision cutting, and a turn-key upgrade for processors with Urschel RA series machines. Updating a line could not be simpler, and the benefits derived from higher yields is a bonus,” noted Tim O’Brien, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
The Integra-D is Urschel’s newest addition to the Affinity line. The high-performance dicer features operation at the push of a button. The machine is designed with the cutting zone completely separate from the mechanical zone. Hinged access panels ease maintenance and part changeovers. The dicer is powered by a 10 horsepower (7.5 kW) motor.
“Superior sanitation, quick part changeovers, and heavy-duty are terms customers use to describe the new Integra-D cheese dicer,” according to Scott Klockow, Mechanical Design Manager. “Customers replacing an RA machine with the Integra-D have experienced 20 to even 50 percent higher capacities due to the larger infeed and increased horsepower.”
The new three-dimensional dicer accepts products up to 4.75 inches (120 mm). Product is delivered to a feed hopper and enters a rotating impeller. Centrifugal force holds the product against the inside of the case. Impeller paddles carry the product past the slicing knife. An adjustable slice gate at the top of the case determines the slice thickness.
As the Global Leader in Food Cutting Technology, Urschel is the #1 best-selling provider of industrial food cutting equipment in the world. Urschel designs, manufactures, markets, and sells precision, high-capacity cutting equipment for the food processing and related processing industries.
Contact Urschel to learn more or to set up a free test cut on the new Affinity Integra-D Dicer. Customers may witness test cutting of their product in-person, via video, or live remotely.
