A mix of soap and traces of micro silver and micro copper. ArgiPura is a ready-to-use cleaning agent that has been specially developed to clean crates and cold storage areas. A demonstration conducted in 2012/13 showed that treated wooden crates containing apples placed in cold storage were cleaner after six months compared with the reference group that had been cleaned using bleach.
ArgiPura is added undiluted to the soap tank in the high pressure cleaner before spraying with the water at a ratio of 1:100.
- Micro silver is an ethylene blocker. As a result, properly cleaned crates and cold storage walls not only remain clean for the whole of the storage period but ethylene formation is also supressed.
