Color-coding is an essential part of many of the operations that we at Nelson-Jameson sell to in the food industry. Color-coded products provide an effective way to organize materials/areas and to prevent cross-contamination. Working with our suppliers, Nelson-Jameson has aimed to offer an unprecedented, wide range of colors and products to meet the needs of our customers. You can check out our current catalog of color-coded products here.
Right now, we are working on adding even more colors and products to our offerings. This is where we would like your help! We are considering the inclusion of a new color, pink. If we were to add this color to our offerings, what specific items would you like to see added?
In addition, we are seeking out ways to take on customer needs when it comes to existing lines. What color gaps (orange, purple, black, etc) in our current line would you most like to see filled?
We want to hear from you! Nelson-Jameson prides itself on being in touch with our customers and consistently seeking to meet their needs. So please share with us what you think about these topics. Feel free to post your thoughts below or contact our MRO Department at 800-826-8302 to share your perspectives!
To amend a famous phrase: “Nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes…and pathogens.” That is right. These tenacious little trouble makers are constantly knocking at our doors in the food industry. It is hard not to resent their tenacity and the ill effects they bring with them on a daily basis. However, there is hope! Get ready to give our microscopic mischief makers the boot!
A new tool in the fight against pathogens called the “HACCP Defender Boot Sanitizing System” will have your employees lining up to focus on this very issue. The HACCP Defender is a walk-in station that utilizes the proven power of Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizer to thoroughly treat employees’ boots before they walk into critical areas of your operation.
The HAACP Defender uses infrared sensors to operate control doors and sprayers, that combined are designed to ensure boots get a thorough application of ALPET D2. Featuring stainless steel construction, the walk-in design reduces chemical waste and controls moisture, ensuring a safe and easy way to combat the threat of pathogens on a daily basis.
To check out more information and view the HACCP Defender in action click here, or contact Devon Jones, MRO Product Manager, at 800-826-8302 to discuss how the HACCP Defender can help your operation kick pathogens out of daily operations from your food industry operation.

Setting up a Preventive Maintenance Program for your insect electrocutors is the best way to ensure that your units are working to their full potential. Ideally, you would choose a month each year for your PM program to be done on the units. It is suggested that this is in the beginning of the year or Spring, with a new insect season.
The PM program should include checking the bulbs for their effectiveness, and making sure there are no other issues with the unit. Fluorescent bulbs that are used in insect electrocutors have an effective life span of 7000 hours or about 9 months. For your convenience, all of our Shat-R-Shield® or Insect-O-Cutor® bulbs come with year labels on them. This aids in your PM program as you are able to tell from a distance what year is labeled on the bulb, and whether it is time to be changed.
Even though a bulb may still be lit, does not mean it is attracting insects, so changing out yearly is recommended. For more information, visit our Learning Center.
