Introduction. Efficient sanitizuation of processing equipment from slaughter process until packaging and storage of the product is an important requirement for the production of animal products, including meat and meat products.

The aim of the work was to determine the antibacterial properties of San-active on test cultures of opportunistic bacteria, spore-forming microorganisms and fungi, detergent properties and corrosive effect on stainless steel and to evaluate the sanitization effectiveness of processing equipment with San-active in the casing room.

Materials and methods. Determination of bactericidal concentration, degree of corrosion and detergent effect of San-active and analysis of the equipment blank in meat processing plants was performed according to the guidelines.

Results of research and discussion. Established that San-active provides bactericidal effect at 0,5 % concentration on all kinds of planktonic forms of S. aureus, E. faecalis, E. coli, P. aeruginos, which were used in 10 min after applying of the detergent sanitizer. San-active applied in the same concentration showed bactericidal effect on spore-forming microflora of B. cereus and B. subtillis after exposure for 30 min, the fungi of the genus Penicillium spp. after 20 minutes, and the Candida spp. after 10 min. San-active showed detergent effect on «good» at 0,5 % concentration, and at 1,0 % and higher concentrations on «excellent». At concentration within 1,0 % and 2,0 % San-active shows very weak corrosive activity on stainless steel, ranged from 0,01 to 0,03 g/m2-year that is in 200–66 times less compared to norm. The corrosion rate of 1,0–2,0 % solutions of San-active does not exceed 0,16 mg/m2-h. It indicates the possibility of its using for sanitization of processing equipment without damaging the work surface.

Conclusions and prospects for further research. Applying 1,0–2,0 % concentrated detergent sanitizer «San-active» at 60±5 0C for 20 min with final water rinsing using automatic equipment Karcher provides 99,9–100 % effective sanitation in the casing room. The arrangements for processing equipment sanitation in meat processing plants will be developed in future.

Keywords: bactericidal action, corrosion, sanitation, «San-active», meat processing plants.
