How the Elite 360® Works

The Elite 360® harnesses electrostatic technology in an all-new way to apply antimicrobials to meat and poultry products. It operates by spraying an electrostatically charged antimicrobial solution onto a product as it rotates, exposing all surfaces of the product to ensure full coverage. This process helps achieve up to 100% transfer efficiency while reducing overspray and uneven application of chemicals.
