Brignais, France-based Clauger, which specializes in air treatment equipment, said it is now certified in 3-A Accepted Practices for the hygienic design of its installations.

The certification’s scope covers air treatment equipment such as Thygre, Access H, Access Height or Access Dual Row. The company said the equipment is used for installations where contamination risk control is essential for product quality and sanitary risk control. Such installations include ripening rooms, high-risk workrooms, fast-cooling processes, bare products processing with high sensitivity, and more.

The 3-A Accepted Practice for Plant Environmental Air Quality, number 612-00, relates to “the good practices for a plant hygiene control.” It validates the fact that the company designs and manufactures air treatment applications according to the highest standards and recommendations, Clauger said.
