6 Stage Hygiene Process

A 6-Stage Chlorine-free Dairy Hygiene Cleaning Programme

Our 6-Stage chlorine-free cleaning programme uses AUTOSAN BLUE, AUTOSCAN RED and a VIRODOX peracetic acid flush to the final rinse, which is combined with a common-sense approach to cleaning.

However, in order to work effectively strict discipline and regularity of use must be observed.

What is more the application of applying the correct product dosing rates cannot be overstated and each will differ depending on the size of your parlour, plant and tank.

In summary, our 6-Stage chlorine free cleaning programmes have been used successfully by many dairy farmers for years.
