Birko - Advertorial


Your Partner in Food Safety

BirkoIn response to the growing demand for greater food safety, Birko has developed the Birko BLAST, a hypobromous acid-based intervention system for killing pathogenic bacteria during processing. The BLAST – or Bromine Liquid Antimicrobial System Technology – safely generates hypobromous acid by automatically blending a liquid precursor, HB2, with sodium hypochlorite. The BLAST system injects the generated hypobromous into the water line, feeding a cabinet where the solution is applied in a high volume flood.

The Birko BLAST safely controls the risks and inconsistencies involved in generating hypobromous acid by automatically mixing the two precursor solutions. This automated system eliminates the need for employees to handle the chemicals directly, making a potentially hazardous process as safe as possible.

Birko is a leading provider of food safety solutions to the protein processing, food and beverage industries. Birko manufactures concentrated CIP, sanitation, antimicrobial intervention and process chemical formulations. Birko’s equipment division designs and manufactures chemical dispensing systems, antimicrobial mixing and spraying conveyors and carcass washing and pasteurizing equipment. Birko’s information technology includes BirkoStats™, an online chemical usage tracking system, and VerifEYE™, a fecal identification imaging system. Founded in 1953, Birko is a WBENC Certified Women’s Business Enterprise and was awarded Supplier of the Century by the National Meat Association.
