Pathogen Decontamination

The next-generation of pulsed-light decontamination that eliminates harmful pathogens in microseconds! Ideal for high-volume in-line food, beverage, and packaging environments.

The Problem for Food Processors

The food supply chain is constantly battling pathogens such as Salmonella, Campylobacter (Campy), Listeria, and E. coli that contaminate food products all along the way, from harvest to processing to preparation. Current processes utilize peracetic acid and millions of gallons of non-reclaimable water a day to ensure the safety of our foods – a legacy system that is passable, but continually challenged by pathogen evolution and adaption. In addition, this approach results in devastating, lasting impacts on our environment.

The PulseForge PDS Technology Solution

The PulseForge PDS is a light-based, chemical and mercury-free, dry, system that can supplement or replace existing decontamination processes to improve results and reduce costs. The PulseForge PDS provides repeatable, controlled, uniform, high-intensity pulsed light with the ability to shape energy delivery to suit your processing needs. The system features a proprietary digital power delivery system and patented flash lamp that delivers both white and UV light to eliminate pathogens.

The pulses of light in our technology can be applied in multiple intensity profiles to meet in-line processing needs – delivering decontamination in microsecond bursts of energy with no harmful heat buildup. A new and superior choice for food decontamination in high-volume, tightly-regulated environments.

Food products on automated processing line

Avoid recalls

PulseForge PDS significantly reduces or removes the constant concern of food recalls, due to outbreaks and cross-contamination.

Longer shelf life

By destroying damaging and dangerous pathogens, foods can have a longer shelf-life, positively impacting food shortages, spoilage, and waste.

Improving Food

High-intensity light boosts Vitamin D in vegetables and reduces allergens in foods such as peanuts and shrimp.

Modular Design for Easy In-Line Integration

Decontaminates Conveyors

Food conveyors are notorious for contamination buildup, even after conventional sanitization processes. PulseForge PDS delivers continuous decontamination of food conveyor surfaces – meaning no shut down for conventional sanitization, and no risk of pathogen buildup.

Integrated Production Tool

PulseForge PDS features a modular design that easily integrates with existing lines – delivering decontamination at vital points. PDS is also scalable to accommodate varying processing speeds and product decontamination profiles.

Food Package Sterilization

PulseForge’s patented technology does not damage low-temp packaging or the food products they contain – preventing pathogens from spreading and cross-contaminating during any step in the process.
