APEX MICROBIAL DISINFECTION W H AT ’ S T H E CO S T OF MOLD TO YOUR BUSINESS?

APEX is the cannabis industry’s premier organic, non-ionizing, and cost-effective solution for yeast, mold, and pathogen reduction. Using the precision of Radio Frequency technology, APEX reduces total yeast and mold count (TYMC) to less than 10,000 cfu/g, preserving the sensory quality without the use of chemicals or ionizing radiation. APEX is a certified organic process solution in Canada.

HOW IT WORKS Within a temperature-controlled process chamber, the RF treatment exposes the cannabis to an electromagnetic field generated between a set of electrodes inverting its polarity at 27.12 MHz frequency. Pre-programmed process settings regulate the RF voltage between electrodes to achieve a targeted temperature that kills the pathogens. The efficient process treatment ensures uniform cannabis treatment at temperatures that will not alter its physical, chemical, functional or sensorial characteristics. Radio Frequency treatment of microbial pathogens is also safe and effective for.

Applications

During the Marijuana growing process, mold can occur at any point but when it does, it can wreak havoc on your entire crop, and therefore your profits. Mold prevention and remediation are practices that are essential to a successful grower. Before plants enter the growing room, it is key that measures are taken to ensure no mold spores are present that can result in them finding their way to the crop. This can be done to 100% effectiveness through chlorine dioxide gas decontamination of an entire facility. Visit our What is Chlorine Dioxide Gas? page to learn more about the technology and our process. A quick, chemical-free, highly effective method of disinfection can be implemented through ultraviolet light. UV-C is the spectrum of light that will kill harmful organisms and spores within minutes. Unlike a gas that can result in complete distribution of the decontaminating agent, UV-C will only kill where light is emitted onto. However, for a highly affordable, highly repeatable and easy method, UV-C is the optimal solution. The Torch offers an innovative room disinfection method that is portable and movable so various spaces can be disinfected within your facility. You can view all of our Contamination Control Products to see what might fit your facility’s needs best.

Seeds may also be carriers for mold spores and pose risk for further mold issues. Seeds can either be placed in a gas isolator or in an ultraviolet light chamber to achieve kill on potential spores without causing death to the seed.

Mold spores are also highly present in the air. To reduce this risk, ultraviolet light air circulation technology can be implemented to eliminate spores. Click here to learn more about the Torch Aire-Recessed.

In the growing phase, a UV Room Disinfection unit or overhead/wall lighting system can be used to kill surface mold within the room or on plants. Learn more on the Flashbar and Torch.

In the drying phase, an ultraviolet light chamber can be utilized for buds to be placed in and kill and spores still present or that may be newly formed. Learn more on the Flashbox and Flashbox-mini.
