Meet Compliance Requirements with Steelhead's Automatic Ozone System Regulator

Steelhead’s ozone controller measures the dissolved ozone level and automatically adjusts ozone levels to meet the 0.5 CT requirement, even under changing conditions. It includes a digital display for auditors to validate easily as well as bottler record keeping through-out the day.

The FSMA (food safety modernization Act) implemented by the FDA requires operators to maintain a a 0.5 CT value or higher when sterilizing their bottles. In addition, the EPA requirement states that the kill rate need to be 4 log reduction.  Under the new rules, auditors can require 3rd party verification, and records proving they are maintaining this level consistently through-out the day. The challenge for most producers to meet these requirements is they must manually adjust and test ozone levels along with maintain accurate records throughout the day.  Ozone levels are effected by temperature, pH, and TDS which change regularly making it difficult to manage. Steelhead’s ozone controller actually measures the dissolved ozone level relative to the set point and automatically adjusts ozone levels to meet the 0.5 CT requirement.  It also has a digital display so that auditors and producers can validate easily.
