The Science of Sweep

UST2It is quite easy to go through the day without taking a second look or give a second thought to the brushes we may use in our food industry operations or in our homes. Considering the vigorous workouts that we give our brushes, and the harsh conditions we expose them to, these workhorses are probably, at best, considered a basic tool with a basic function. Yet, the brushes we utilize today in industrial and domestic realms are the result of continuously morphing science and engineering standards.

For instance, filaments, the frontline soldiers in scouring, are put under a great deal of constant duress. In order to ensure that filaments (which can be made of several different materials, including polyester and polypropylene) don’t shed like needles from a dry Christmas tree, various settings have been developed to both allow durability and reflect standards of sanitary practice.

For basic cleaning, filaments have been traditionally set in with staples. Filaments are held in place, allowing for a level of durability and the ability to retain the filaments. However useful, staple-set brushes, because of their setting do permit small pieces of debris to get caught within the setting and may allow the growth of potential bacteria that get caught there. Such general-use brushes may work within certain circumstances; yet, they present some issues when contending with ensuring sanitary standards in food industry environments.

Identifying Allergens Is Key

AllergyRecently our Technical Director Fritz Buss was interviewed for an article on allergen management in Quality Assurance & Food Safety

In the article Buss stated, “the first challenge is identifying the allergens…that are present in their facilities.” Once the allergens are identified, color-coded products can be implemented to prevent cross contamination.

Many new guidelines and requirements are being put in place to regulate processors and aid in allergen management. Starting December 13, 2014 the United Kingdom will have a new Allergen Labeling Rule put in effect, which requires manufacturers to declare 14 major allergens compared to the United States’ “Big 8” (Milk, Eggs, Fish, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Wheat and Soy).
