Birko Introduces Improved Entryway Foamer

May 9, 2012

HENDERSON, Colo. — Birko, a leader in providing food safety solutions to the protein processing, food and beverage industries, today announced that its entryway foamer has now been improved to generate more foam with reduced amounts of chemicals.

Birko’s entryway foamer has a high CV, or flow coefficient value, which provides more air to create thicker, longer-lasting foam. A programmable logic controller with a real-time clock and adjustable dispense and dwell time settings allows users to foam on schedule for a pre-determined amount of time. The real time clock controls the operating hours so no chemical is wasted if the unit is not turned off at the end of the day.

The stainless steel entryway foamer has been redesigned to be a compact 14” x 12”. It uses 120 VAC electricity plus compressed air and a plant water line.

Entryway foamers help keep E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria and other pathogens from migrating at processing plants, and should be placed in all critical plant entries.

“These fully automatic systems replenish a heavy antibacterial foam as needed throughout the shift. The entryway foamer can be set up as a stand-alone unit or linked in multiple units to a central chemical source,” said Jerry Oates, director of Birko’s equipment division. The new entryway foamer is completely manufactured in the United States by Chad Equipment, LLC, a Birko company, headquartered in Olathe, Kan.

Birko’s entryway foamers use economical Entry Foam® for regular applications or Birko Quadra-Quat™, Ultra Quat™ or Liquik 2CS™ for more serious plant problems.
