UK: Gel-clear has launched what it claims is the first non-hazardous cleaner for HVACR condensate drains.
A safe alternative to acid/alkaline/caustic cleaners, it is said to be formulated to kill biofilm forming bacteria in the overground condensate drains while cleaning and unblocking drains.
“Condensate drains beneath the cabinet have always escaped the reach of conventional drain cleaning methods, all too often engineers will use caustic/acid/alkaline based drain cleaners as a last resort, and at risk to both themselves and the equipment they work on,” explained Gel-clear MD Paurick Gaughan.
“The BRA have always accepted that the overground condensate drains beneath the cabinet to be the remit of the refrigeration contractor, and as such, the launch of a user friendly, food safe cleaner is a big step forward in cabinet PPM and reactive maintenance alike,” Gaughan added.
Said to pose no environmental risks, Foaming Drain Cleaner is phosphate and phosphonate free, and safe for discharge into the watercourse. It comes in a 215g tear strip, resealable pouch.
Gel-clear have led the way for HVACR condensate drainage in food retail, developing and UK manufacturing both chemical, and physical award winning products to improve condensate drain efficiency.
