Preventing black mold is a full-time job when you operate your barrel room or wine cave at the optimal relative humidity for retaining your product. And because wine ages at such a slow rate, barrels aren’t expected to move too much. Cleaning around barrels requires careful precision – and sometimes powerful cleaning chemicals. For some winemakers, chemicals are a non-option – but black mold doesn’t cease being a threat. Airocide presents an elegant, chemical-free solution to control black mold in your cellar, barrel room, or wine cave. You can produce a more natural product, without worry about mold, spoilage bacteria and yeast, or evaporative loss from lower RH. Discover how Airocide protects your product.
Black mold spreads, like many fungal pathogens, by releasing spores. Black mold can become airborne – and disturbances like changes in air pressure, vibrations, and everyday foot traffic can be enough to send spores flying through the air. It can land on product, and on employees – and as soon as it reaches a suitable organic material it takes hold and grows. For your product, that could mean spoilage – but it also spells danger for employees who could inhale it. Taking control of black mold means eliminating it where it spreads, not just where you find it in your cellar.
That’s where Airocide can help. As an air purification technology designed to process the air in your facility independently of your HVAC, Airocide continually processes and purifies the air inside your storage areas without disturbing those environmental factors your product depends on as it ages. That means you can operate at the right relative humidity without worrying about providing an environment for fungal spores, spoilage bacteria, and yeast in the air.
Airocide destroys unwanted organic molecules, and it does so without the use of any harsh chemicals or dangerous emissions. That means no peroxides, no ozone, and no volatile organic compounds are produced. Unwanted fungal spores, spoilage bacteria, yeast, and even viruses enter the sealed reaction chamber and are broken down into trace elements of carbon dioxide and water vapor. Not only can this reduce the incidence of infections like black mold, it can also help prevent aging product from developing off flavors.
