Best Sanitizers, Inc., Nevada City, Calif., released a new footwear sanitizing unit to help reduce pathogens and cross-contamination from footwear in food processing facilities, research labs and cleanrooms.

The HACCP SmartStep2 Walk-Through Dual Footwear Sanitizing Unit adds an additional layer of pathogen protection by reducing cross-contamination from footwear before employees enter the production area or other critical control zones. This foot-operated unit requires no electricity and uses compressed air to deliver an atomized spray of Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizer or Alpet D2 Quat-Free Surface Sanitizer to the bottom of footwear soles.

The walk-though design provides greater throughput while maintaining a compact footprint, meaning it can be placed practically anywhere in the facility. The unit is made up of 8 atomizing spray nozzles (four per boot) to provide ample coverage to footwear soles, yet uses only 0.4 ounces of chemical (0.2 ounces per boot), which minimizes chemical waste and improves moisture control.

Both Alpet D2 and Alpet D2 Quat-Free are alcohol-based surface sanitizers that are ready-to-use, highly evaporative and ideal for water-sensitive equipment. Plus, they are said to have the fastest kill times available for non-food contact and food contact surfaces. Alpet D2 and Alpet D2 Quat-Free boast a 10-second kill claim on non-food contact surfaces, and are NSF-listed, EPA-registered, Kosher, Pareve and Halal-certified.
