The Elite 360 Precision Application Technology from Birko Corp. uses electrostatic technology to food sanitation. Elite 360 electrostatically applies an antimicrobial intervention to cover the product, using the least amount of antimicrobial possible, while still being as effective as possible. Transfer efficiency, the ratio of antimicrobial applied to the meat surface compared to the amount sprayed, was found to approach 90-100 percent in Birko’s testing.

The Precision Application Technology of Elite 360 not only reduces pathogens, but it reduces the amount of chemicals applied and significantly reduces water use as well as wastewater treatment costs. In contrast to a conventional dip tank antimicrobial application, electrostatic technology can reduce chemical and water usage by as much as 95 percent and has shown up to a 2.0+ log reduction and 360-degree product coverage.
