Fruit Packing Ammonia Leak Odor Case Study
An anhydrous ammonia leak occurred in the freezer warehouse of a Central California food processor. The cardboard boxes containing the frozen fruit wrapped in plastic became impregnated with an ammonia odor. Warming the boxes to outgas the ammonia would have rendered the frozen fruit worthless and unmarketable. A fogger unit containing BioWorld Odor Neutralizer was used on each box removed from the warehouse prior to shipping.
The ammonia odor was eliminated for less than one thousand dollars. The frozen fruit was sold, at regular price, for several hundred thousand dollars.
