・In order to use heat as a disinfectant successfully, the temperature
and contact time of the seed with hot water need to be controlled
very accurately. In addition, each seed needs to be treated exactly
the same, otherwise the germination ability is reduced or pathogens
may escape the treatment.
・Using the latest available technology, all of our models are
assuring a constant contact temperature & time.
・The seed is sanitized without the use of chemicals harmful
to the operators of the sprouting plant and the environment.
・Heat is a natural and very effective disinfectant ? making
the process suitable for organic producers.
・Automatic and semi-automatic models are making the labor-intensive
processes of seed treatment much simpler. Beside operating costs
for the steam boiler and machine, there are no additional expenses
(such as for expensive chemicals).
・The method has been used in sprouting operations of all sizes
in Japan for over than ten years .
・Tests in our Lab as well as in sprouting operations in Japan
and in the USA have shown that “Seed Disinfecting” is - comparwith
other meteds - the most effective method to sanitize sprouting seed
successfully under the operating conditions of a sprouting plant.
