Sterilization of knives is basic, fundamental and compulsory in the food industry. The risk of contamination is high and in order to avoid the problems caused by the presence of dangerous microorganisms it is necessary to have knife sterilizers.
It is therefore mandatory that these systems are present in slaughterhouses, supermarkets, bakeries and any place where the treatment and processing of food takes place.

The importance of knife sterilization
Food hygiene regulations are very strict. All measures are few and far between when it comes to cross-contamination, i.e. the transmission of micro-organisms from one contaminated food to another.
This transfer not only occurs by direct contact, but can also be made through surfaces and other materials that come into contact with both parts. This group includes knives, sharpeners, which must be disinfected continuously to avoid being a source of contamination.
What types of knife sterilizers are there?
- UV-C: this is a totally bactericidal, antiviral and germicidal technique.
- Ozone A: Ozone acts on biological constituents, bacteria, fungi and viruses.
- For water: equipment with heaters so that the water reaches an adjustable temperature up to 90º C.
And, above all, when choosing a sterilizer for the food industry, remember that you must have the certificates established by the regulations for food safety.
