An aging population in developed markets presents new opportunities in elder
for those areas not easily
reached during routine disinfection procedures. Because it is an aerosol, there
is no mixing or waste. It kills
Mycobacterium bovis, Salmonella choleraesuis and
Tri-chophyton mentagrophytes on
hard, non-porous environmental surfaces; prevents
mold and mildew on environmental surfaces in public
places and meets EPA Efficacy Standards for hospital
aerosol disinfectants. According to Spartan, SparSan
Q Disinfectant Deodorant is an effective deodorant because it destroys bacteria—the initial source of odors—rather than covering
them up. Deodorizers, which do not have disinfectant properties,
merely cover one odor with another, the company said.
Within the food service sector, Spartan launched Sani T 10
Plus, which it calls a fourth generation quat-based, food contact
sanitizer for use in food handling and process areas, federally inspected meat and poultry plants, fruit and vegetable processors,
wineries, restaurants, bars and institutional kitchens. Sani T 10
Plus is said to be ideal to sanitize filling equipment, food processing equipment, meat and poultry or fruit and vegetable conveyors dishes, glasses, cooking utensils and eating utensils.
Moreover, it is also a non-chlorinated option for eggshell sanitizing. Sani T 10 Plus is effective against a variety of organisms
including Listeria monocytogenes, E-coli 0157:H7, salmonella,
Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus.
Demand for disinfectants and sanitizers will outpace the industry’s overall growth, according to a new study by the Freedonia
Group (see chart on p. 92).
“While manufacturers of disinfectants have ongoing chal-
lenges with pathogens becoming more resistant to traditional
disinfectants, the ingredients that got floors clean years ago still
do the job,”explained Mike Richardson, an analyst with Freedo-
nia. “Meanwhile, the U.S. population continues to age and the
health care market seems to be almost immune to the ebbs and
flows of the economy.”
Spartans’ new Lite’n Foamy Counter Mount Dispenser is a
premium system designed to deliver rich quality foam right from
the countertop. The attractive chrome design and impact resist-
ant body will fit the décor and demands of many upscale rest-
rooms such as those found in lodging, restaurants,
entertainment and office buildings.
