Kikkoman’s LuciPac A3 Sanitation System, distributed by Weber Scientific, measures ATP, ADP, and AMP. The A3 system technology detects food residues left behind to ensure better surface sanitation and support a more effective sanitation program that reduces the presence of resident organisms and the risks from food pathogens. It can assist in developing and improving process and risk assessment programs. For data analysis, the system comes with software that has programmable features: 100 test plans, 200 user IDs, 251 locations per test plan, and 5,000 test locations.

The TD-30 series of thermal desorption systems are available for use with the company’s Nexis GC-2030 as well as its entire GCMS product line. The TD-30 series consists of two models, TD-30 and TD-30R. The TD-30 is equipped with a 60-sample carousel. The TD-30R has the ability to hold 120 samples, making it well-suited to large-volume automated analysis. Both are equipped with a retrapping function that allows split samples desorbed from the tube and loaded into the GCMS to be trapped again for potential re-measurement. An overlap function dramatically improves processing functionality by starting pretreatment of a sample while the previous sample is still being analyzed. The ability to add an internal standard in the TD-30R can allow for reliable quantitative analysis, even of trace components. Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, 800-477-1227, www.ssi.shimadzu.com.
The VERYX B210, featuring an inspection area over 80-in. wide, can maximize throughput on high-capacity lines. Recognizing objects’ color, size, shape, and/or structural properties, the sorter removes foreign material and product defects to improve product quality while virtually eliminating false rejects to increase yields. It offers a production capacity in excess of 50,000 lbs. of product per hour, depending on the application. Sorter optimally singulates product on the belt to improve sorting accuracy. The B210 is ideal for wet and frozen potato strips and specialty potato products as well as fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, leafy greens, potato chips, and other snack foods, confections, seafood, and more.

The D999-FR grain moisture tester has more than 250 grain calibrations with a wide temperature range (from -4° F to 158° F) for testing both frozen and hot grain. Featuring wireless data communication, the meter features 4.3-in. LCD touchscreen display that provides moisture, temperature, and test weight information. Moisture range is 5% to 50% depending on grain. Results can be achieved in less than 5 seconds. Users can synchronize and send results to smartphone, tablet, or computer using a Bluetooth connection.

The redesigned BIOSPRAY surface sanitation system’s anti-freeze technology allows for a continuous spray up to 90 minutes, without a power source. System uses CO2 delivery technology to safely apply BIOSPRAY D2 EPA registered food-grade surface sanitation in a highly calibrated stream for full coverage that reaches smaller cracks and crevices. While alcohol typically cannot be sprayed due to flammability concerns, the CO2 propellant in the BIOSPRAY device renders the alcohol inflammable, making the fine mist spray safe and capable of spanning greater distances. The company says the BIOSPRAY D2 sanitizer contains 58% isopropyl alcohol content, which completely dries off the water balance within 60 seconds after application, leaving the environment 100% free from residual moisture.
