RADNOR, Pa. -- Sterilox Technologies, Inc. announced today that its A-2000 generator has received C2 certification for food equipment by NSF International and has earned the ability to display the NSF Certification Mark on this device. This certification, granted to food equipment and/or devices used in storing, preparing, or handling food and beverages which meet the NSF/ANSI standard for this category, confirms the A-2000 generator is appropriate for use in the food industry.
The A-2000, the first model in Sterilox's compact line of generators designed specifically for the food industry, is only 2 feet wide and less than 3 feet deep and fits under most sinks, saving valuable floor space. This generator produces a safe, fast and effective non-toxic biocide on-site, which works against a wide range of bacterial and viral pathogens and organisms that present major safety and health challenges in food retail and service industries.
"NSF certification is the gold standard in the food industry, and we are proud that the A-2000 has met the high standards from the world leader in product certification for public health and safety," said David W. Anderson, CEO of Sterilox Technologies, Inc. "The NSF Mark will give purchasers in the food industry full confidence in our product's safety."
